Fifa are reportedly set to investigate Paul Pogba’s Man United transfer

Football Leaks claim superagent Mino Raiola will receive over £41m for the club-record move.

Pogba became the world’s most expensive player in the summer of 2016 with two of Raiola’s other clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitarayan, also joining Man United in the same window.

The details of Pogba’s wages were also revealed in full.

The report claims Pogba earns a basic wage of £165,588-a-week, and will receive an annual loyalty bonus in excess of £3.4million from next year.

Should United win the Europa League, the France international’s basic wage would rise by £36k-a-week, and he would earn an extra £255k in commercial rights for the year.

Superagent Raiola is almost as famous as his clients

After a protracted transfer saga, lasting several weeks, Pogba eventually signed for United last August and has appeared in almost 50 league and cup games this season.

A Juventus spokesman said they had received no communication from Fifa.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic — another Raiola client — is said to have banked even more from his one-year stay at Old Trafford.

The Swede is paid a basic wage of £367,000 per week.

That has been bumped up to £422,000 every seven days thanks to huge goal bonuses.
