Pogba incurs Fergie´s wrath
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has slammed the behaviour of Paul Pogba.
An angry Ferguson has confirmed that the midfielder has left Old Trafford, with a move to Juventus all but concluded.
Ferguson introduced the Frenchman into the Red Devils' first-team fold last season but has failed to convince the 19-year-old to sign a new contract.
"Pogba signed for Juventus a long time ago as far as we're aware, which is disappointing," Ferguson told MUTV.
"I don’t think he showed us any respect at all so, to be honest, I'm quite happy that if they carry on that way, they’re probably better doing it away from us."
The future of promising left-back Ezekiel Fryers also remains in doubt but Sir Alex is expecting the youngster back for pre-season training.
"We haven’t heard anything from Zeki Fryers I don’t know what’s happening there but he’s not been in touch with the club," he said.
"His agent hasn’t been in touch with the club and I can only assume he'll be back for training today."
Meanwhile, United are set to float nearly 65 million pounds of shares on the US stock market as part of an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
The Red Devils are currently privately owned by American millionaires the Glazer family, who took control in a 790m pounds takeover in 2005.
However, the club have revealed that their debts currently stand at 423m pounds as of March, a figure which the Glazers will hope to drastically reduce by taking this step.
The club have expressed their intention to offer Class A shares for sale whilst the American owners will retain all Class B shares - which entitle them to 10 times as much voting power on the board.
The move will also see the club become the subsidiary of a new holding company based in the tax haven the Cayman Islands.
"We intend to use all of our net proceeds from this offering to reduce our indebtedness,” the prospectus said.
"Our 134-year history, our success and the global popularity of our sport have enabled us to become what we believe to be one of the world's most recognizable brands.
"We enjoy the support of our global community of 659 million followers.
“The composition of our follower base is far-reaching and diverse, transcending cultures, geographies, languages and socio-demographic groups, and we believe the strength of our brand goes beyond the world of sports."
