Manchester United say they are ready to take legal action against Le Havre if they pursue a case against the Red Devils over their signing of Paul Pogba.

Le Havre president, Pierre Louve, claimed the Old Trafford club had offered Pogba's parents 100,000 Euros each and a house if the 16-year-old joined them.

Although Pogba subsequently did join United, the Premier League champions insist the move was legal.

They are ready to defend themselves in the strongest terms should proof be required following Fifa's decision to punish Chelsea last week over their pursuit of Gael Kakuta.

"Manchester United is entirely satisfied that the transfer of Paul Pogba has been conducted in accordance with the regulations set down by the world governing body, Fifa," said the club in a statement.

"Manchester United is ready to defend any claim brought against it by Le Havre at Fifa."
