Manchester United fan trolls Paul Pogba over playing Europa League football

This is an interesting way of welcoming a world-record signing to the club you support.

Manchester United announced the return of Paul Pogba just after midnight last night:

Pogba, 23, has signed a five-year contract with the option of a sixth season after United agreed a deal with Juventus which is thought to be worth €105million (£89million).

That figure eclipses the estimated £85million that Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013 in the previous world-record transfer.

United did not confirm the fee paid when announcing the deal.

Pogba left United four years ago for a nominal fee, and went on to win four Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia twice while his reputation grew – persuading United chiefs to back Jose Mourinho's transfer policy by paying a colossal sum to bring the France star back to Old Trafford.

There was a stinging Twitter reaction from Juventus fans to the news, while others jokingly compared the Frenchman to past and present Premier League midfielders.

Almost all United fans were delighted with the news, having seen so many other promised transfers fall through over the years.

However, one fans took up a peculiar line of welcoming by trolling the midfielder over the fact that he will be participating in the Europa League this season.

Having posted the above message to former side Juventus, Pogba was met with streams of abuse, among them a jibe from a fan of the club he has joined:

This was fairly challenged by another Twitter user, who questioned the bizarre post:

The Red Devils fan used the 'follow the crowd' defence:

Yes, the Tweeter's profile picture is none other than Paul Pogba.
