Paul Pogba’s move to Manchester United has been confirmed. Who by? Rapper Stormzy, of course.
After a transfer saga which threatened to last the summer transfer window, it was announced on Sunday that Pogba had been permitted to attend a medical with United by his current club, Juventus.
The deal is expected to be confirmed by the clubs on Tuesday, with an initial fee of around £89m having been agreed. It could rise above £100m with add-ons.
However, rapper Stormzy, a friend of Pogba’s, accidentally revealed that the 23-year-old would be joining United this summer.
He posted a video on Facebook featuring the Frenchman, who was wearing a United shirt with the number six on the back.
