This week, Paul Pogba became the most expensive player of all time. DID YOU NOT KNOW?!
The French international will receive an estimated £290,000-a-week which will make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League, ahead of Manchester United teammates Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
If that wasn’t enough, a clause in the 23-year-old’s contract reportedly states that Juventus are helping to pay towards buying Pogba a house.
No, really. According to Yahoo, the Italian side will pay in the region of £4.2 million to help Pogba find a place to live in Manchester.
As part of the world record deal Juventus are also committed to giving €5m to Pogba to help fund the purchase of a new house. [yahoo]

Of course., because £290,000-a-week is simply not enough to buy a house in Manchester…
It is also believed that around £1.5 million of the fee will go to Pogba’s previous clubs Le Havre, Torcy and Roissy-en-Brie.
That’s a third of how much Juventus are paying for Pogba’s house.
