Jose Mourinho pictured next to tactics board - and fans think Paul Pogba's name is on it

If reports are to be believed, Paul Pogba could complete his highly-anticipated return to Manchester United within the next 48 hours.

Speculation has been rife over the past month regarding his future, with the Red Devils prepared to sanction football's first ever £100 million transfer in order to get their man.

Such is the belief that Pogba will become Jose Mourinho's fourth and final summer signing at Old Trafford that rumours suggest United's representatives were due to meet with Mino Raiola today to finalise a record-breaking deal.

The super-agent has since slammed such speculation as "bull***".

However, amidst all the rumours, a picture posted on Twitter by Mourinho's wife, Matilde, has sent social media into meltdown.

In the blurry image below, United's manager is captured standing next to a whiteboard that appears to have tactics written on it.

What fans are so intrigued by, though, is the name written above Fellaini's.

It's impossible to determine for certain what it says, but upon initial inspection, many believe it says 'Pogba'.


Others aren't so convinced...

The above picture is certainly a prime example of clutching at straws, but consider this: would you really put it past Mourinho to include a player he hasn't yet signed in his tactics? Probably not.

What's certain is United are confident - and desperate - to sign Pogba, so much so that they've delayed announcing next season's squad numbers in the hope of completing a deal before hand.

According to The Sun, a club insider said: "It would be very expensive for the club to release the squad numbers only for them to change.

“The club want to make sure all players are signed and sealed ahead of the coming season before they are announced to the world.”
