We bring you the exclusive information about what Messi and Pogba talked about in their meeting.
Pogba: Hey, what’s up my man?
Messi: I just saw some weirdo sprinkling salt while wearing a sunglass in the dark bro. I don’t know what to say.
Pogba: Aah you met him as well? There’s nothing special about him, I don’t know how he got so famous
Messi: Wow I heard Graeme Souness say the exact same thing
Pogba: He’s stupid. Anyway, how you doing?
Messi: I came back last weekend and we lost. I was shocked and I needed some peace. What’s up with you?
Pogba: I was injured out last weekend and we lost. I was shocked and I needed some space as well.
Messi: It wasn’t really a shock that you lost to Man City, though
Pogba: Naah I was shocked by Fellaini’s haircut. I had nightmares
Messi: Oh, that’s true, I guess
Pogba: Yeah. Anyway, how is it under Valverde?
Messi: It’s good. He’s strict, though. Dembele had attitude issues and he was dropped from the game altogether.
Pogba: Oh, is it..
Messi: Yeah. Why do you ask?
Pogba (thinking) – ‘Time to catch up with Neymar now’
Messi: Paul, are you there?
Pogba: Wha-What? Nothing!
Messi: How’s Jose?
Pogba: He’s good fun, mate. A proper character in the dressing room. I mean, if you’re a footballer, you must work with Jose at least once.
Messi: Oh, is it..
Messi (thinking) – ‘I know Jose sent you here. But I’ve no interest in playing in Europa League next season’
Pogba: Messi, you there?
Messi: Yeah. Anyway, let’s catch up sometime, eh? Need to go back.
Pogba: Right. Bye!
