Can we read anything into Pogba's latest tease to Man Utd fans?
Paul Pogba has teased Manchester United fans after posting an Instagram message showing him joking in a Miami swimming pool with his agent Mino Raiola.
Pogba and Raiola are the two most talked about men in football this summer as speculation mounts suggesting he two men are close to finalising world record transfer deal that will see United hand Juventus well in excess of €100m to sign the French international midfielder.
Yet Pogba gave nothing away in his latest message, as he suggested all the speculation surrounding his immediate future was not being fuelled by him or his media friendly agent.
“We say it all by saying nothing at all,” declared the message, which came with an accompanying image featuring a smiling Pogba and Raiola.
The image was greeted with a stream of abuse directed at Pogba from angry Juventus fans, as they clearly believe the 23-year-old is preparing to make his exit from the Turin club four years after he left Manchester United following a contract dispute with the Old Trafford club.
Riaola’s move to fly out to Miami to meet with Pogba has fuelled suggestions that final talks over the mega-money transfer are now underway, with reports in Italy on Monday suggesting the deal could be announced as early as Wednesday.
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has continued to side-step questions over Pogba’s future in recent days, yet he has confirmed that talks are underway over the sale of the player.
Juventus’ move to remove Pogba’s image from the top of their official Twitter was viewed by many as evidence of his imminent departure, with the circus surrounding this never ended transfer saga likely to edge towards a conclusion imminently.
