Paul Pogba uploads video of himself training in Juventus jersey. The clips were from sprint drills he participated in with a Man Utd teammate.
Much of Paul Pogba’s time at Manchester United has been laden with controversy. The French midfielder’s future has long been uncertain with Real Madrid and former club Juventus heavily linked as the clubs he may move to should he depart Old Trafford.
Pogba stirred a hornet’s nest when he took to Instagram to upload a video of himself and United teammate Victor Lindelof doing sprint drills at his home while wearing a Juventus jersey. Lindelof himself was spotted in Albin Ekdal’s Sampdoria jersey. However, the 27-year old midfielder explained that it was for a good cause.

Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United in 2016 for a then world record fee of €105 million. The Frenchman caused quite the stir last summer when he spoke of his desire for a ‘new challenge’. He was rumoured to make a move to Real Madrid. However, United managed to keep a hold on him.
Since then however, his contribution to the side has been limited. Injuries have kept him out for a large part of the campaign. The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has led to reports of United looking to offload Pogba and cash in on him before his contract runs out.
