Paul Pogba continued to concern Manchester United supporters over his relationship with the club after claiming he could not wait for the next international break with France.
The midfielder, who made history by winning the World Cup over the summer, has hinted towards the prospect of joining Barcelona in the future on a couple of occasions this week.
He took part in France’s first home game since claiming the ultimate prize in Russia, beating the Netherlands’s 2-1, and the celebrations were naturally massive.
Here is a video of Pogba greeting the Stade de France and just generally having the time of his life, miles away from the paranoia and scrutiny of Old Trafford.
He took to social media after the game and many viewed his comment as another suggestion that things were not well at Man United.

It is clear that Pogba is not especially happy at United. And why would he be? He is part of a team miles away from challenging for silverware and shoulders most of the blame for poor performances which take root in Jose Mourinho‘s failure to create a dynamic attacking set-up.
With France, however, it feels like an entirely different story. Kind of like when you visit your divorced dad and he lets you stay up later than normal and gives you ice cream – something mum would never sanction.
He will, no doubt, continue to fight for United this season, but the prospect of a big money move to Barcelona somewhere down the line feels inevitable, especially if Mourinho’s team continues to regress.
