Manchester United Football Club will be welcoming back a World Cup winner before the new season.
Paul Pogba has enjoyed a truly stunning summer, at the heart of a France team who haven’t leapt off the page, but have been extremely efficient.
He’s pulled the strings from deep for the duration of the tournament, putting in some wonderful displays against world-class opposition. To see him command the midfield like that is massively reassuring.
Things were topped off as he scored a lovely goal to end any hope Croatia had. His strike from outside the area was perfectly placed, leaving Subasic in the goal absolutely helpless.
Now it’s about bringing those performances back to Old Trafford. Sure, we’ve seen some great displays from him on occasions, but nowhere near often enough. He’s obviously an immensely talented young man with the footballing world at his feet.
The confidence that he’ll have from this can only be a good thing for his form at club level. I 2018/19, I’m definitely expecting him to have his best professional season yet, and I’m genuinely excited to watch it unfold.
As you’d imagine, United fans all over social media were absolutely buzzing, and rightly so. Check out some of the best reactions here:
