Okay, we are all bored with hints, rumours and claims surrounding Paul Pogba's move to Manchester United, but Adidas couldn't resist one last bite of the hype machine.

Pogba’s boot company have offered up what may be their final contribution to the hype surrounding the midfielder’s imminent €120m move to Manchester United, by offering up a full version of a video featuring the French international.

Adidas scored a social media hit with their brief clip of Pogba reading a newspaper and suggesting their was a lot of “blah, blah, blah” surrounding his world record breaking move back to Old Trafford.

Now they have offered up the full video, which includes United logos and apparently hints that Pogba may not be moving back to Manchester after all.

The video appears to be a tongue-in-cheek production that has proved to be a huge hit on Twitter, with United fans eagerly awaiting the confirmation that Pogba has returned to United four years after he left for nothing.

This latest contribution follows Pogba’s eagerness to tease fans over his next move on his social media account, while his agent Mino Raiola even got in on the act last week with the initial reference to the “blah, blah, blah” comment in his Twitter message.

The circus surrounding Pogba’s move looks set to end soon, with the transfer expected to confirmed imminently.
