Literally nobody enjoyed the news of Gonzalo Higuain’s Juventus transfer more than Patrice Evra

Any excuse for a dance

D’ya reckon Patrice Evra is looking forward to playing with Gonzalo Higuain?

The Juventus full back was thrilled to bits when the news broke that the Old Lady had secured the Argentina international on a five-year deal.

Evra staged a choreographed dance to celebrate the arrival of the former Napoli forward, who became the third most expensive footballer in history with the move.

The French international broke out ‘The Running Man’ to welcome his new teammate to Turin and, judging by the smile on his face, it was the best day of his life.

News of the Argentine’s big money move to The Old Lady prompted a fresh wave of speculation linking one of Pogba’s teammates with a move away from the club.

Paul Pogba has been strongly linked with a return to Manchester United over the summer months, and reports from Italy on Wednesday morning suggested the deal would be completed in ‘a question of hours’.

However, with United supporters once again raising their hopes about the deal, a tweeted video from adidas – featuring Pogba – appeared to suggest such reports were wide of the mark.

With Zinedine Zidane suggesting in a press conference on Tuesday that Real Madrid remain interested in the player, the Frenchman could yet end up plying his trade with the European champions next summer.
