Well that’s settled then. They enjoyed dessert together – done deal.

Both Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku enjoyed their weekends with positive results for both Manchester United and Everton respectively. Pogba was part of a comfortable 3-0 win over bottom of the league Sunderland, whilst Lukaku scored two goals against Leicester City in a 4-2 victory.

The pair shared cake and a sofa whilst settling down on watch Lazio vs Naples, and that was enough to fan the flames of transfer speculation.

Far be it from us to suggest that people can friends and spend their free time together without it meaning that they automatically want to work at the same place, but it seems a bit of reach to suggest Lukaku is now Old Trafford bound. But try telling this giddy lot…
