Paul Pogba's barber all but confirms Manchester United transfer
Paul Pogba's hairdresser has all but confirmed that Paul is joining Manchester United. In an accelerated turn of events which saw reports of Jose Mourinho 'tactics board' having Pogba's name, and Manchester United chief executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward not on the flight to China (where the play their pre-season games), things seem to be finally concluding between Pogba, Manchester United and Juventus.
Pogba's hairdresser though seemed to let slip the news, after giving him a haircut, "Had to change hair colour for his new team #manchesterunited #lyfebrand", but after the furore, he went on to remove the tag and then remove the post completely. Everyone loves being a tease, don't they?
It's funny how every time someone else seems to confirm a signing for Manchester United before they officially do (if it turns out to be that way), Zlatan, Mourinho have all had their moments this season.

If ‘this’ eventually ends in a day or two (or by the end of the transfer window), that would mean, Paul Pogba a 23-year-old, will be the costliest player in the world. He will be going to Manchester United for a fee in the region of £105m to £140m (depending on where you read the news for the deal), the same club who let him leave for free.
Paul Pogba, to be honest, had an average Euro 2016 campaign, where he scored once. He was overshadowed by the likes of Payet, Griezmann and Moussa Sissoko (that should hurt) in the French national team, and was even benched for one of the games. But, that doesn't seem to have deferred the Manchester giants.
Paul Pogba had been linked to a host of clubs including Barcelona and Real Madrid, but Manchester United seem to have priced them out of the deal. The question remains, is a midfielder, worth that kind of money? Only time will tell.
