Long-term Manchester United target, Paul Pogba, is believed to be on his way to Old Trafford – for a record-breaking transfer fee. And his barber may have just confirmed the transfer, with a post on Instagram!
News outlets from around the globe have reported that the French international has already agreed terms with his former club. It is also believed that Manchester United have met Juventus’ requirements – €120 million transfer fee – after their initial bid of €101 million was rejected.
The Frenchman’s barber recently uploaded a picture on social media site, Instagram, which confirms that Pogba is in fact on his way to Manchester.
“Criztofferson,” the barber’s username on Instagram, posted a picture of him cutting Paul Pogba’s hair. Along with the picture was a caption that read: “had to change up Pogbas haircolor for his new team. #manchesterunited #lyfebrand.” The caption also included football and money emojis.
The post has since been deleted from social media, although it had already been spread around by thousands of fans before it was taken off.
French Newspaper, L’Equipe, confirmed on Wednesday night that Manchester United had made a second bid for Pogba, which was accepted by Juventus.
The deal is expected to materialize during the next few days, with Paul Pogba already agreeing to a £250,000 a week salary. When the deal is completed, the 23-year-old will become the most expensive footballer ever – overtaking Gareth Bale’s transfer fee of €100 million.
