Paul Pogba hasn’t said anything directly in the last few weeks about his future but I’ve lost count of the number of indirect messages and hints from the Juventus midfielder.
Now that Manchester United have officially announced Pogba will undergo his medical this week ahead of completing his move from Juventus, he couldn’t resist by sending out another message to fans on Twitter:
He said: “When too many people talk nobody understands, talk very soon.”
When too many people talk nobody understands ???? talk very soon

Well Paul, on the contrary, when you and your agent Mino Raiola have talked the whole way through this transfer saga it has actually made it more confusing. We’ve been pulled left, right and centre with mixed messages and denials the whole way through, even though it was always happening behind the scenes.
I can’t remember a transfer which has been driven so directly by sponsors. Adidas’ marketing campaign around ‘Bla Bla Bla’ following Raiola’s comments were pretty infuriating because they did nothing but intensify the speculation, which didn’t help with fans who were becoming increasingly frustrated with it all.
I’ll be glad to hear what Pogba has to say on the matter if he actually speaks openly and honestly about it but seeing as how the whole thing has unfolded, it probably will be far from that.
