Paul Pogba’s every movement is watched by Manchester United fans. The £89m man may have been forgiven for thinking the attention would die down when he finally completed his world-record transfer from Juventus to Old Trafford during the summer, but, if anything, the focus on him has continued to increase.
And last night a picture emerged on Twitter that sent Man United fans into a state of frenzy, with the powerful midfielder celebrating alongside Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann following France’s win over the Netherlands in World Cup qualification action.
Although there are a million sane explanations for this image, some supporters of the Manchester club are choosing to believe that Pogba is working undercover to convince the pair to join him in the North West of England…

In fairness to the above Man United followers, Antoine Griezmann has been mooted as Joe Mourinho’s ‘No.1 transfer target for 2017’ of late, while Varane was aligned with a move to Old Trafford during the last transfer window.
Could the deals happen because of Pogba? It’s about time he got an assist…
