FIFA have cleared Manchester United of any wrongdoing in the transfer of midfielder Paul Pogba from Juventus but said on Tuesday they had opened disciplinary proceedings against the Italian side.

World soccer’s governing body had asked both clubs for information about Pogba’s world record 89 million pounds transfer from Juventus, following leaks which claimed to give details about the huge deal.

A book titled, “The Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football” alleged Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola had made over 40 million euros from the deal, 27 million euros of which was paid by Juventus.

FIFA did not give details of the nature of their proceedings against Juventus but some media reports have suggested it could be related to breaches of third-party ownership rules.
