Paul Pogba played a starring role in France’s 2-0 win over Germany in their Euro 2016 semi-final which sealed their place in the showpiece final on Sunday.
Having been previously dropped by Didier Deschamps in the group stages, Pogba rose to the occasion on the biggest stage to help guide France to the final on their home soil.
It was Pogba’s assist for Antoine Griezmann in the second half which got tongues wagging as he bamboozled Mustafi with some quick footwork before sending in a cross which led to the goal which sealed the game.
Overall, needless to say, Manchester United fans loved what they saw.
Pogba has been fabulous, marvelous. Eddie, get him to OT

At 23, Pogba will be worth every penny of that £100m to whoever signs him. Will it be Manchester or Madrid?

Get Pogba off. Don't want him too stiff for his medical.

If Pogba can win back control of midfield battle for France he'll be worth that £100m! #MUFC

Pogba’s a genuine world class midfielder. You can’t say that about too many players these days and he’s still only 23. It’s truly sickening to think he should never have left Man United in the first place but let’s be honest – if he had stayed then David Moyes and Louis van Gaal would have been enough to make him jump ship anyway.
Should we re-sign him? Absolutely. Will we re-sign him? Not if Juventus can stop the move and that’s the snag in this whole deal. If we are to sign Pogba this summer, we’ll have to prise him away from a club who has no intention of selling but to our credit we’ve already done that with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Borussia Dortmund.
