Photo: Reported Man United target sends heartfelt message to Arsenal star

Paul Pogba has a message for Mesut Ozil...

Paul Pogba has taken to social media to heap praise on Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, and describe the Germany international as a top player.

Pogba was on the winning side on Thursday night as he helped France secure a 2-0 victory over Germany in the Euro 2016 semi-final clash to book the hosts’ place in Sunday’s final against Portugal.

The France international has been heavily linked with a transfer to Manchester United in recent days as Jose Mourinho searches for his fourth summer signing at Old Trafford.

And the midfielder has shown his class by posting the picture above of himself consoling Ozil at the final whistle on Thursday on his personal Instagram account.

He shared the photo and wrote: “Big example, top top player, always a pleasure to play against you, I learn a lot @m10_official #fiersdetrebleus #firstneverfollows.”

Pogba was allowed to leave Manchester United in the summer of 2012 by then manager Sir Alex Ferguson after being deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.
