Paul Pogba endured something of a bumpy landing in Manchester, as his private jet was buffeted by wind as he flew in to complete his world record transfer from Juventus.

Misleading reports on Sunday evening suggested Pogba had already arrived in Manchester in secret and was undergoing his United medical, but that was not the case as the 23-year-old Frenchman only landed in England at lunchtime on Monday.

This footage confirms his arrival was a little uncomfortable, as the small plane was rocking from side to side before it finally made a safe landing.

United have agreed a deal believed to be in excess of €100m to sign Pogba, four years after he left Old Trafford for nothing following a contract dispute with the club.

United manager Jose Mourinho is convinced his arrival is value for money, as his lengthy chase for the player is set to come to a successful conclusion.

"I don't think Real were upset when they broke the record with Gareth Bale or Cristiano. I don't think it's a reason to be sad - it's a reason to be proud," he stated.

"Football is crazy and the market has become crazy. What you think this season is crazy, you realise three years later it's not crazy any more.

"There are players who cost £10millon who are super expensive because they're players (who are worth) £500,000 or £1million. What is expensive and not expensive in football? I don't know any more. I just know he is a big player."
