FIFA confirmed they have opened “disciplinary proceedings against Juventus” over the Paul Pogba transfer, but Manchester United are in the clear.
The France international became the most expensive player in the world just under a year ago when he returned to Old Trafford from the Serie A giants for a fee believed to be in the region of £89million.
However, it was announced in May that FIFA had requested documentation as they wanted full clarification over the deal after it was suggested that Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola was set to earn up to £41million.
United insisted at the time they were relaxed about the investigation after supplying all the relevant documents when the transfer was completed in August and that has been backed up on Wednesday via confirmation from FIFA.
It is believed that Juve, who reached the final of the Champions League in the season just gone, could have breached third-party rules and if found guilty they could be hit with a punishment which ranges from a fine to a transfer ban.
