It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce what this summer’s major transfer saga is going to be: Paul Pogba’s reported return to Manchester United.
Every day, United fans have trawled social media to get the latest news on the Frenchman’s situation at Juventus and, now, we may have found the most intriguing – albeit ludicrous – clue yet.
On Tuesday, a photo of Mourinho, taken by his wife, did the rounds on social media and some of the more savvy-eyed viewers believe a tactical board in the background may bear the name ‘Pogba,’ suggesting that Mourinho is convinced that United will indeed sign the midfielder.
As you can see in the photo above, there’s a tactical board on the wall to the left of Mourinho and although most of the names appear to be illegible, United fans are drawing conclusions that Pogba’s name is there.
One of the commentators on the photo, which you can see below, claims to have decoded the entire prospective starting line-up.
From where we’re sitting, it’s impossible to tell 100%, but United fans have also been given encouragement in the latest splurge of reports from Italy claiming the club are due to meet Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, in the coming days and are expected to formally bid around £100m for the player.
In addition, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane appeared to suggest that the La Liga club were not in the running for Pogba after insisting he is happy with the squad he has.
As for the tactical board photo, we’ll let you decide for yourself.
