Manchester United Cleared Over Paul Pogba Transfer

Paul Pogba FIFA has given the all-clear for 16-year-old Paul Pogba to be registered as a Manchester United player.

The teenager’s previous club, Le Havre, had lodged a complaint with the world football governing body, alleging that United had induced Pogba to break his existing contract with the French club, in similar circumstances surrounding Gael Kakuta’s transfer to Chelsea from Lens.

However, the presiding judge ruled in favour of the English champions, declaring that Pogba had not been contractually linked to Le Havre, and that United were not in breach of any FIFA regulations.

A statement on the Old Trafford club’s official website read: “Manchester United is pleased to confirm that the Football Association has been authorised by FIFA to register Paul Pogba as a United player with immediate effect.”

Le Havre are able to appeal the decision if they wish.
