Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba 'have dinner together in LA'
Manchester United striker Ibrahimovic was spotted in an LA restaurant yesterday, dining with none other than top Jose Mourinho target Paul Pogba.
The speculation around Paul Pogba's future continues to be the summer's most high-profile transfer rumour.
The Juventus star has been time and again linked with a return to Manchester, with Jose Mourinho apparently desperate to land the midfielder.
These latest images will further fuel the notion that the France man is on the verge of a world transfer record-breaking move to the Red Devils.
Instagram user Bobby Chinn managed to get snaps with both players (in separate instances) in a Los Angeles restaurant:
Despite the fact that Zlatan and Pogba do not appear in the same photo, Chinn seems to clarify that they were indeed dining together:
"These two superstars were having dinner with their families together.
"Here they are in LA, eating in a swank restaurant TOGETHER, with their families.
"I heavily doubt they met to talk about Ronaldo, or maybe they did!
"As a Liverpool supporter, which I confessed to both of them, I'd love to see them both at Man Utd, it only makes the Premier League an even greater spectacle."
Chinn is certainly unique – he has to be the only Liverpool fan that wants to see Pogba at United.
A potential explanation for the meeting of Ibrahimovic and the Frenchman is that they both use the same agent, in the form of Mino Raiola.
According to reports, Raiola owns a percentage of Pogba's commercial rights, meaning he could pocket a sizeable sum should the 23-year-old return to England.
Ladies & gentlemen, let me clarify matters and set the record straight. I do not disturb celebrities in their free time, especially when they are with their families having dinner. However, in this given moment, a freind of mines son was very excited to see Ibrahimovic and I could not help myself. Nobody knew who they were and they dined undisturbed other then a very quick photo opp that took no more then 10 seconds, the magnitude of such stardom coupled with the #football transfer rumours with, #mufc interest in #pogba, knowing that #mourinho wants him and #Ibrahimovic #ibra_official, is already signed, and here they are in #losangeles eating in a swank restaurant TOGETHER, with their families. I heavily doubt they met to talk about #ronaldo, or maybe they did! As a #lfc supporter, which I confessed to both of them, I'd love to see them both at #mufc, it only makes the #premierleague an even greater spectacle, especially with #cfc signing #conte #mcfc signing #guardiola will make it an even more exciting season. It just gets better and better! Pogba didn't say he was joining any club and I am sorry to speculate, but these two superstars were having dinner with their families together. A dinner that could have not taken place anywhere else without being disturbed by the press. I did not recognize Pogba initially as he was wearing his cap, but they were both very gracious, humble and accommodating.. At the end of the evening, as they were waiting for their cars, valet drivers took note and the photo opps were taking place with some totally clueless of who they were.. I turned to a beautiful women and asked her as she looked on a little dumbfounded by the fuss 'do you know who he is?' And she turns to me 'of course I do! He's my husband!' I could not help but laugh. Minutes later Pogba, Ibrahimovic and their families all stood together and with Pogba's wife out of the photo holding her phone looked at me and gave me her phone to take the family portrait. They have some great shots taken by moi Bobby style! Below is Michael Hosking the great music concert promoter based in Asia who's son was the first to recognize them.
