Paul Pogba scored a remarkable goal in a training exercise for France amid the row over his latest comments regarding links with Barcelona.
Speaking in his first interview since Mino Raiola’s outburst at Paul Scholes, Pogba said: “My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I’m playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
The comment has fanned the flames even further regarding a potential move to Barcelona, who showed great interest in his services towards the latter stages of the transfer window.
Away from all of that, though, Pogba was stunning his France teammates in a training exercise designed to encourage quick build-up play through the middle. Skip to 0:35 to see a truly wonderful piece of skill.

Very nice. Very very good. This, my friends, is vintage Pogba: perfectly weighted, perfectly timed, and incredibly stylish.
But the saga between himself, Jose Mourinho, his agent and Barcelona rumbles on. He has deliberately fanned the flames again, igniting fresh speculation over a potential departure at a time when the team needs to be together.
You get the sense that a big money move away – possibly even in January – is on the cards.
