Will Paul Pogba really complete a return to Manchester United this summer? Speculation has been rife that the France international, who departed Old Trafford on a free transfer back in 2012, could sign for his former club in a world-record £100 million deal.

It would be a truly remarkable transfer, but who knows whether the United hierarchy will manage to get it over the line.

Pogba, 23, has gone from strength-to-strength at Italian giants Juventus and is now widely recognised as one of the leading midfielders in world football.

He's by no means the finished article - he struggled for consistency during Euro 2016 - but it's clear for all to see that he would prove a wonderful coup for Jose Mourinho and co.

There appears to a long, long way to go in the saga, however; the Red Devils may have acted quickly by securing the trio of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but it appears that the process to bring Pogba to Manchester will prove a far tougher one for all involved.

Instagram post 

However, there could be a new twist in the saga...

Indeed, an Instagram post from a chef well and truly came to prominence on Wednesday night. But the social media post wasn't from any old chef. This one was from the chef of Pogba.

So, first thing's first, here's the post:

What did you make of that then? Well, the first problem was that he didn't spell Pogba's name correctly.

But he was in a photo alongside the United target and insisted that the midfielder is set to join the ranks at the Theatre of Dreams. He could be joking, of course, but the post quickly did the rounds on Twitter and fans of the Red Devils duly reacted.

Despite the chef attempting to break the news that Pogba is signing for United, the club's supporters aren't getting too excited just yet.

This one is probably our favourite: 

Raiola influence 

It's fair to say that agent Mino Raiola has already played a very important role in United's transfer business this summer - he's the agent of Mkhitrayan and Ibrahimovic - but will he lead Pogba to Old Trafford?

It's far from certain at this point, but he's admitted that a club must come up with a "project" to make Pogba depart Turin.

He said, as per the Mirror: "Last year, when the bid came in, I really wanted him to go to Chelsea. It didn't happen but this year we will see.

"Juve do not want to sell him and there is a chance for us to talk about a new contract. He feels no need to leave.

"But if you come with a project that will make Paul want to leave, we'll talk with the club."
