Anyone who is anyone in the city of Manchester wants to be seen in the famous Chinese restaurant Wings. Indeed, it is the favoured hotspot of United's manager Louis van Gaal and a number of his star players.
But few diners would have expected to see current Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba returning to his old hunting ground on a random Tuesday night.
Needless to say, word quickly spread that for the former Red Devils youngster was back in town and the local paparazzi were there at the drop of the hat. They got a couple pictures and also asked him why he was back in Manchester.

Both City and United fans would have been hoping for some juicy transfer gossip. Indeed, both clubs have been linked with an interest in the midfielder, despite his €100million price tag.
Unfortunately, Pogba's answer was far from exciting. He simply said: "I love Manchester."

Why did he ever leave?
Then why did you leave, Paul? Oh, the heartache you could have spared the United faithful by agreeing to sign a new contract instead of leaving for Serie A in 2012.
But, of course, his career path may never have followed the same trajectory at Old Trafford. As the 22-year-old has always claimed, he told Sir Alex Ferguson he wanted first-team football and was not convinced such a request would be granted.
He was given that guarantee by Juventus and has now progressed to one of the game's most prominent stars. Who knows, had he stayed at Manchester United and continued as a reserve, he could now be playing alongside his brother, Mathias, at Partick Thistle.
Time to return
However, he could still return to the city he loves in the near future. Whether that will be to play in a blue or a red shirt is yet to be decided. Both of them could afford the price tag set by Juventus as well as the huge wages the Frenchman is likely to demand.
According to his agent, Mino Raiola, Pogba turned down three offers in the summer to stay at Juventus, but he is unlikely to stay forever and it is clear he has strong ties to Manchester.
Simply put, there could be a day when the sight of Pogba eating at Wings becomes a regular occurrence.
