Paul Pogba has wasted no time catching up with Raphael Varane after his France international teammate’s move to Manchester United was confirmed.
United announced an agreement to sign Varane this week, and the defender now just has to fly in to do his medical.
Pogba, who is on holiday in Miami, uploaded a picture to his Instagram chatting to Varane, and both players looked delighted.
Could Pogba be tempted to stay?
Paul Pogba’s future is the subject of debate, with the midfielder only having one year remaining on his contract.
A report from The Mirror last week claimed Pogba has rejected a new offer from United, but there has been no clear activity with regard to selling him on.
The last time Pogba and Varane saw each other, France were eliminated from the Euros. There was a bit of bad feeling reported in their homeland regarding the fallout from the match – but clearly Pogba and Varane are on great terms.
The duo have known each other for years and won the World Cup together in 2018.
For the time being, both are going to be Manchester United players. When Pogba gets back to Carrington and sees Varane there, it is going to be very hard for him to walk away.
This could end up being a transfer which sways Pogba into staying put at Old Trafford. And that would make the £34 million spent on Varane look like an even bigger bargain.
