Paul Pogba sends a birthday message to Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj

Paul Pogba has taken to social media to wish Adnan Januzaj a happy birthday after the Manchester United starlet turned 21 on Friday.

Pogba and Januzaj know each other from their days playing for United before the France international joined Juventus on a free transfer back in 2012.

And the midfielder, who has become one of the most highly-rated young talents in Europe since his move away from Old Trafford, took the time out to send his former team-mate a message on Friday.

Pogba uploaded the photo above of the duo onto his personal Instagram account and wrote: “HBD lil bro @adnanjanuzaj best wishes Mon petit feno”

Pogba has been touted as a possible transfer target for United following his rise to prominence at Juventus.

Januzaj, meanwhile, is hoping to earn his place in Louis van Gaal’s starting line-up at Old Trafford after his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund was cut short.

United travel to defending champions Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
