Yes, people really think Paul Pogba has just hinted at a move to Barcelona

Oh come on...


Brace yourselves, Manchester United fans: Paul Pogba is almost certainly set to leave. Again.

As we all know damn well, when a football player likes a comment on Instagram suggesting he might move to another club, it’s as good as a done deal.

This is precisely what’s happened with the French midfielder, not even a year after sealing his return to the club from Juventus.

After Pogba had posted a picture of himself sharing a joke with Neymar and Lionel Messi after United’s tour game against Barcelona in Washington DC on Wednesday night, one commenter wrote: ‘Pogba to Barca in the next couple of years?’

Instead of ignoring the comment, it was soon pointed out on Twitter that Pogba had actually taken the time out of his day to like it – an action that almost certainly confirms (to some, at least) he’s got his eyes set on a move.

So that’s that then, right? He might as well be posing for pictures alongside the Barca president or doing keepy-uppies at his Camp Nou unveiling.

Or perhaps there’s absolutely nothing in it, and we all just need to stop paying so much attention to Instagram.
