Photo: Paul Pogba deals Man United possible blow after meeting Drake

Paul Pogba presents Drake with a Juventus shirt, to the despair of some Man United fans on Instagram

Paul Pogba left some Manchester United supporters worried about their prospects of signing the midfielder after the France star presented singer Drake with a Juventus shirt in New York on Thursday night.

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils in recent months and the 20-time English champions were thought to be on the brink of completing a world-record deal for the midfielder.

However, for now, Pogba remains a Juventus player, with his outspoken Mino Raiola remaining bullish over speculation in the British and Italian media over a big-money transfer to Old Trafford.

And perhaps in a sign that the France international won’t be heading to United after all, Pogba presented singer Drake with his Juventus shirt following his concert in Madison Square Gardens on Thursday night.

Pogba posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote:

“Thanks to my bro @champagnepapi for this crazy performance last night .. #legend ah Oui hein #summersixteen #ovo”

Very nice meeting you bro @champagnepapi #holidays

Some United supporters were inevitably upset to see Drake clutching Pogba’s Juventus shirt, although the Canadian artist could be the one feeling shortchanged should Pogba complete a move to United and render his present out of date.
