FIFA has cleared French teenager Paul Pogba to join Manchester United after the dispute with Le Havre was resolved in favour of the English champions.

FIFA ruled that the 16-year-old midfielder had not been offered financial inducements by United to break a contract with Le Havre because he didn’t have one.

A judge decided Pogba was an amateur because he had received nothing beyond normal expenses to play for the French club.

United said Pogba would immediately be registered with the club through the English Football Association.
