Paul Pogba has indicated that his long-drawn-out move to Manchester United is nearing completion by signing a fan’s shirt.

Jonathan Perkins, who was celebrating his 18th birthday while wearing a new United jersey with ‘Pogba 6’ printed on the back, spotted the France international in Los Angeles on Friday.

Perkins asked him for an autograph and, despite the fact that his return to Old Trafford is yet to be confirmed, Pogba obliged.

“So this just happened! (Probably the first United jersey he has signed since the impending transfer),” Perkins wrote on his Instagram account.

“Thanks @paulpogba for making my 18th birthday a little more special!”

Pogba has regularly dropped hints regarding his future on his own Instagram account this summer.


On Saturday, the 23-year-old posted two pictures of himself at Universal Studios, each with a playful caption.

“Breaking news: Pogba undergoes medical check in Universal Studios amusement park California,” read the first.

“News: we catch Pogba with his contract in Universal Studios LA amusement park,” he added to the other.

Pogba’s move from Juventus is expected to be announced in the coming days.
