Unless you've been living under a rock, you are aware that Paul Pogba is at the centre of the biggest transfer tug-of-war in this summer's transfer window.
The mercurial French midfielder looks set to depart Juventus following a hugely successful spell in Turin after leaving Manchester United on a free.
The Red Devils are now the favourites to re-sign their former player with talks of a record-breaking £100m set to seal the deal.

Juventus are now said to be looking at replacements to fill the void which will be left by one of their most important players. According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is rumoured to be top of Massimiliano Allegri's shopping list.
Newcastle United's Moussa Sissoko is also said to be on the radar of the Italian giants, but Matic tops the pile and Juve feel confident they can get their man.
Antonio Conte's side recently acquired N'Golo Kante from Leicester City, further intensifying competition for midfield places at Stamford Bridge.
Matic enjoyed a stellar campaign upon his return to the club from which he joined the Portuguese side, but struggled immensely in 2015/16, adding fuel to rumours that he may seek an exit.
Conte has come out and said he would like to keep hold of the midfielder, who has been playing in Chelsea's pre-season tour of Austria, with the club wary of letting the Serb depart for a second time after having to repurchase him the first time.
The Italian manager is said to be keen on making four new signings this summer as he strives to build his own Chelsea team and mould it into his own unique style.
Juventus will be keen to quickly address the void left by Pogba if he does leave the club, but Matic seems an odd player to replace one of the world's most enigmatic footballing entities.
Pogba's game in Turin has been moulded on his ability to change games with sensational dribbling, shooting or passing and the Frenchman operated mainly as a number ten during 2015/16.
Matic by trade is a much more pragmatic player, someone who would struggle to mirror much of what Pogba brings. It would perhaps be a sensible signing from a defensive perspective, but he would be no replacement for the 23-year-old.
