Paul Pogba simply smiled in response to a fan who asked him if he would be signing for Manchester United this summer after the France international flew to New York on Monday night.

The midfielder has been relentlessly linked with a transfer back to Old Trafford in recent weeks as Manchester United continue their search for their fourth summer signing.

Pogba has been reported to be on the verge of completing a world-record transfer back to Old Trafford in the British media as his future has been a relentless source of speculation this summer.

The 23-year-old has been holidaying in the United States as he recharges his batteries ahead of the 2016-17 season.

And one fan who bumped into him on Monday said that the midfielder gave little away about his club for next season when asked directly about his future.

Instagram user @benneeofficial posted the picture above on his personal account on Monday night and wrote: “Just bumped into the £100 million man @paulpogba on the same flight as me into NYC.

“Of course I asked if the man utd rumours were true but he just gave me a small smile and walked away…. Fingers crossed I guess 😉 #pogbaisred #comehomepogba #paulpogba #pogba”
