Paul Pogba spent the final days of his summer holiday partying in Las Vegas before preparing to travel to England to complete his world-record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United.

Having also holidayed in Miami and Los Angeles this summer, Saturday saw Pogba at the famous Wet Republic pool party at MGM Grand among thousands of other revellers, where superstar DJ Calvin Harris was the headline act.

Pogba was joined by his France and Juventus team-mate Patrice Evra, while his agent, Mino Raiola, worked on the finer details of his £100m transfer. 

The pair were accompanied by friends and other partygoers at their luxury cabana - boasting its own private plunge pool - which costs upwards of $10,000 per day.

Pogba offered no significant update on his pending move to Old Trafford, which sources close to the deal have told Sky Sports News HQ is nearing completion, and is expected to be finalised before the Premier League season begins. 

When asked by SSNHQ's Andy Burton whether the deal was close to being concluded, Pogba would only say "we'll see".
