FIFA requests information on Paul Pogba's transfer to Manchester United

FIFA confirms it has requested further information on the world-record transfer of Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

The French midfielder was transferred for more than £89.3m (€105.2m) in August 2016 from the Serie A champions.

Extracts from a book, The Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football, published in Germany this week, claimed to give details on the huge deal, including a breakdown of the fee, and were widely reported by media outlets on Tuesday.

 

Though FIFA was keen to stress this is not a formal investigation, it has confirmed it is looking into the matter further.

A statement from football's governing body on Tuesday said: "We can confirm that FIFA/TMS has been requesting information on the transfer. We have no further comments at this stage."
