Most Manchester United fans would like to see Antonio Griezmann in the Red Devils’ colours. But according to reports, the French star could be on his way to Barcelona. The Catalans have reportedly agreed a deal in principle for the attacker. But Juventus and Argentina striker Paulo Dybala could well be on his way to Manchester United. Paul Pogba seems to be hinting at this. A lot of United fans certainly wouldn’t mind that.
Flashback to last summer
Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku were holidaying in America last summer when there were rumours that the Belgian was on his way to Chelsea. The deal to Chelsea was practically done so many of us believed, but Paul Pogba kept teasing United fans with posts on his Instragram page with the hashtag ‘AgentP’
One of such Instagram posts read this: “See you tomorrow in training @rlukaku9 #bienvenue #AgentP????????”
Paul Pogba even replied to a United fan who had cheekily asked him when ‘AgentP’ will start work on United’s next signing, to which he replied “Agent P never sleep”. And true to Pogba’s words, a few days later Manchester United confirmed they had signed Romelu Lukaku ahead of Chelsea, from Everton. It was a deal no one expected to happen. Chelsea were everyone’s favourites for his signature, while people including yours truly thought United would get Alvaro Morata.
It appeared Pogba was privy to some information back in the summer, hence his Instagram posts back then. And if that be the case, it is safe to assume Paulo Dybala will be joining Manchester United next summer, or even this winter.
This is because Pogba has again been teasing United fans with his “Agent P” hashtag on Instagram. Pogba posted the picture below on his Facetime call with his former team mate at Juventus, then wrote “Happy birthday my brother!! @paulodybala #AgentP”
It could mean anything, but judging by the Lukaku incident of last summer, it would not surprise me if Pogba again knows something no one else knows. Dybala, who reportedly earns £110,000/week, has so far this season scored 13 goals and created 4 assists in 18 starts for Juventus.
