Paul Pogba's shirt number appears to have gone to Paulo Dybala

Published 2 Comments

Paul Pogba's proposed move to Manchester United just gets more and more confusing by the day.

The last two months have seen so many twists and turns that Man United supporters aren't really any closer to knowing when they can starting looking for Pogba-associated official merchandise.

And, on the same day the Frenchman told some Juventus fans he would be staying in Turin, another big development suggests he may well have been telling a white lie.

Juventus have been withholding their official squad numbers for the upcoming season, presumably until Pogba's future became clear, however, one Adidas store in Paris may have just revealed the biggest hint that the Red Devils are on the verge of getting their man.

That's because one image has emerged today showing Paulo Dybala's name on a No. 10 Juventus jersey - the number worn by Pogba last season.

As you can see from the Tweet below, it would appear the £100 million-rated midfielder has lost his squad number to Juve's Argentine forward, Dybala.

It is definitely worth adding some context to this before United supporters jump the gun and think the Pogba is effectively a done deal.

The 23-year-old only switched from No. 6 to his most recent squad number last year so there is the obvious possibility that the Italian champions have just shuffled the pack once again, rewarding Dybala for his impressive form last season with a change from No. 21.

Then, of course it is worth considering the likelihood of the Paris store making an honest mistake or a possible printing error.

As is the nature of Twitter, some loyal United followers couldn't help but jump for joy with their reaction to the news after it looked like the deal may have collapsed just hours earlier.

Here are some of the best tweets:
