WATCH: Paul Pogba’s reaction to Lukaku telling him he’s joining Man United is magic


Nooruddean Choudry


In case you didn’t know, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are best mates. The pair regularly holiday together and clearly have a great rapport and mutual respect. Both are 24 years old, both are worth millions and millions of pounds, and both have the world at their very gifted feet.

Perhaps vitally, they also happen to have the same agent in Mino Raiola. The pair have been hanging out together in LA (where Lukaku had something of an altercation with the police) and that has led to speculation that Manchester United’s midfield gem was instrument in getting Everton’s powerhouse striker to move to Old Trafford.

Now it’s obvious that Pogba would have been privy to the movements of his bestie, but that didn’t stop the pair acting out a skit in front of the camera to celebrate the Belgian’s big money transfer.

Lukaku is seen approaching a chilling Pogba, casually saying “See you tomorrow in training”, to which the Frenchman incredulously replies “What?! Are you serious?!” and Lukaku responds: “Yes! Training tomorrow!”

It’s quite obviously staged but how can you not love to ecstatic mates enjoying their special moment?
