Paul Pogba comes from a footballing family. He and his two brothers have all made it into the professional game with Mathias playing for Dutch outfit Sparta Rotterdam and his twin Florentin excelling for Ligue 1'a Saint-Etienne.

But while Paul's big brothers are currently cutting out respectable careers in the game, it is the youngest of the family that is by far and away the best footballer to come out of that talented household.

The 23-year-old became the most expensive player in history this summer when Manchester United paid £89million to sign him for a second time.

It was a move that few would have expected after the manner of his exit in 2012. After coming through the youth ranks at Old Trafford, he fell out with Sir Alex Ferguson over a lack of playing time and joined Juventus on a free transfer.

It was a move that some questioned at the time but proved to be a masterstroke for the Frenchman's career. He won four Serie A titles and became one of the best-known footballers in the world. However, he retained a soft spot for the Red Devils and a move back to Cheshire was never off the table in his mind.

But his love for Manchester United doesn't appear to spread across the entire family with his brother, Florentin, revealing that he actually supports their Premier League rivals Arsenal.

He told French TV station Telefoot: "Playing in the Premier League is a childhood dream of mine. I had opportunities this summer. I love Arsenal!"

In a wide-ranging interview, Floretin also revealed that his brother Paul was "starting to wake up" in the Premier League after a slow start to the season. He was a candidate for man of the match in their 4-1 win over Leicester City last week, contributing a goal to an impressive team performance.

Party time

Pogba's slow start to the season at Old Trafford has been put down to his efforts in the European Championships over the summer but could there be another more sinister reason for it?

According to The Sun, guests at The Lowery Hotel in Manchester have been forced to complain about loud music, shouting and singing emanating from Pogba's suite.

Is the midfielder staying up too late, impairing his ability to perform on matchdays? Almost certainly not but a poor performance against Stoke City on Saturday would only strengthen that argument.
