United set to finally seal Pogba return
After months of negotiations, and numerous reported medicals having taken place, it now appears that Manchester United have finally completed a deal to bring back Paul Pogba to Old Trafford. The Frenchman departed Manchester four years ago following the end of his contract, and having become one of the most admired midfielders in the game, will not complete a return to Old Trafford in a world record transfer fee. With United having already completed the signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly this summer, Jose Mourinho is certainly assembling a squad capable of challenging for the title this season. However, which other transfers this summer could have as big as an effect on Premier League proceedings?
This season’s Premier League looks set to be one of the most competitive and compelling in recent history, with new players, as well as world class managers bringing fresh impetus to English football’s top flight. Both United and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are among the favourites for the title, and a free bet from bookmakers could well be worth using on either one of the major rivals.

City have recently invested heavily to bring German international Leroy Sane to the Etihad, adding to the purchases of Ilkay Gundogan and Nolito from Dortmund and Celta Vigo respectively.
Pogba’s arrival at Old Trafford would take United’s spending over the £150 million mark, with expectations ahead of the new season mounting under the most successful manager of his generation. The Portuguese boss has already shown that he is unafraid to make big decisions, banishing Bastian Schweinsteiger to the reserves after revealing the German is not in his plans for the season ahead. Bookies.com offer the latest betting odds, with the former Bayern man linked with a return to the Allianz Arena.
Elsewhere, the arrival of passionate Italian Antonio Conte at Chelsea is certain to cause a stir in West London, with the signing of N’Golo Kante potentially one of the transfers of the year. After finishing in tenth position last time around, John Terry and Co will be under pressure to mount a serious title challenge, with no European football to partake in. The use of free bets found at Bookies.com on the Stamford Bridge side to lift the Premier League trophy come May 2017 may well prove fruitful.
