Paul Pogba's £89m Manchester Utd transfer 'to be investigated'

Paul Pogba's £89m Manchester Utd transfer 'to be investigated'

Paul Pogba's world-record transfer is the subject of an investigation by FIFA, world football's governing body.

Pogba moved to Old Trafford for £89.3million last August, but reports from earlier this week have cast a shadow over the deal.

The statement said that a loss of confidence in FIFA's commitment to reform was now "inevitable" and the "already-battered image" of world football's governing body would be tarnished yet further.

What information do they already have - and what do they want to know?

Federation Internationale de Football Association boss Gianni Infantino has called for more transparency around transfers.

When Juventus confirmed the sale past year, it said the "economic effect" was "about €72.6 million (£61 million)", £18 million less than the total sum United allegedly paid.

Raiola is believed to have pocketed £23 million of the transfer fee, while that figure will increase by £17 million over the next five years.

So FIFA cleared Pogba's transfer in August without complaint?

Courtois added: "We hope to do it at the first attempt". "We're very close, and it will be very enjoyable after past year ". They are now on 45 with visits to Manchester City and Swansea to come after the Chelsea game.

A club spokesman said: "We don't comment on contracts". Whether or nor the same issues exist with the Pogba transfer is yet to be seen.

What may have sparked FIFA's inquiries? .

ITMS oversees around 12,000 cross-border transfers of players each year - a huge number of transactions. One thing's for sure- NICE TIMING FIFA!

That would be information beyond the details retained by FIFA's Transfer Matching System, which has to ratify player moves between nations.

Clarke has absolved United of blame in the deal, but admits that a conversation should be held over agent fees in football.

Raiola also professed that he was not therefore in breach of third party ownership rules as the rules had changed AFTER he made the deal to take Pogba to Turin in 2012.

What else was revealed in the book?

Reporters for respected German newspaper Der Spiegel, in combination with whistleblower group Football Leaks, are set to release a book this week entitled Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football.
