Paul Pogba sends freestylers wild with brilliant trick

Published 2 Comments

Football News

One of the reasons Manchester United fans are so desperate for the imminent Paul Pogba announcement is because he’s hardly your average central midfielder.

The Frenchman can get forward and score goals, he can spray passes around the pitch, he knows how to tackle and, to top it all off, he’s no stranger to pulling off the odd wonderful skill during matches.

Pogba might be 6ft 3in tall - meaning he doesn’t possess a low centre of gravity like, say, Lionel Messi - but he’s still very handy with the ball at his feet.

The 23-year-old even managed to shock a group of freestylers in this video obtained by Spanish newspaper AS.

Pogba pulled off a double around the world with a heel flick - and you can watch the footage by scrolling down this page to the embedded video.

Video: Pogba wows freestylers with impressive trick

After performing the trick, the watching freestylers all screamed out in amazement and then chased Pogba around the pitch.

The Juventus midfielder, who is expected to sign for the Red Devils in the next few days, then did a little dance to cap it all off.

All that was missing was the Dab.

Pogba set to become most expensive player ever

Pogba is set to become the most expensive footballer of all time when he rejoins the Red Devils.

The Telegraph reported on Wednesday evening that an announcement is close after a £100 million fee was agreed.

Football fans - and those who work in the sport - and divided over whether it’s morally right to a club to be spending such a ludicrous amount of cash on one player.

Phil Neville: Pogba is worth the money

However, former Manchester United player and coach Phil Neville believes it’ll be money well spent.

“I think you are getting one of the best midfield players in the world,” he told Sky Sports.

"I think you are getting someone who is not going to dominate a game on the ball like a Xabi Alonso or a Paul Scholes but is going to go from box to box.

"His physicality is always something that has stood out. Even when he was younger at the academy at Man United, he was always bigger than everybody else, he was always quicker than everybody else, he was always more powerful.

"He will give the Man United midfield that power and that stature that I think they have missed for the last two or three seasons."
