Manchester United have been cleared by Fifa to sign 16-year-old Paul Pogba.

French club Le Havre had claimed that they had agreed a contract with the midfielder for the current season before he moved to United without their permission.

But a Fifa-appointed judge ruled that, because of his age, Le Havre could not have got an agreement for Pogba to sign a professional contract.

“Manchester United are pleased to confirm that the Football Association has been authorised by Fifa to register Paul Pogba as a Manchester United player with immediate effect,” said a statement released by the club.

The ruling means United have not broken any Fifa rules – particularly the one dealing with the protection of minors.

Fifa has advised the Football Association to register Pogba as a United player immediately.

The judge decided Pogba was still an amateur because he only received normal expenses for playing for his club.
