Paul Pogba appeared in a relaxed mood on Wednesday night as the Manchester United signing joined Jesse Lingard for dinner ahead of his first appearance.

The France international is expected to make his second United debut against Southampton at Old Trafford on Friday night after the 23-year-old missed their 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.

Pogba was suspended for the Red Devils’s season opener at Vitality Stadium as goals from Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic sealed three points for Jose Mourinho’s side.

The four-time Serie A champions was the fourth of Mourinho’s summer signings after Pogba completed a much-anticipated £92m return to United from Juventus.

And Pogba went to dinner with Lingard and a friend on Wednesday night as the France midfielder kept his body fuelled ahead of the Southampton clash.

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

“so happy to see my bros again @jesselingard @jcofie #pogback”

The United midfielder scored eight times and made 12 assists in 35 Serie A appearances last term.
