French World Cup star Paul Pogba raised a few eyebrows across the channel following his country's victory in Russian Federation when he chose to whip out a familiar song during a winners photo shoot.

According to the Guardian, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has told Barcelona that the midfielder is available and that "he doesn't want another joyless season in the Premier League".

"It begs the question, where has that Paul Pogba been since he joined Manchester United?".

"We're going to eat that f--ing sauteed pasta again".

Liverpool FC could sign Alisson for £62 million by the weekend
Should they beat Liverpool to Alisson's signature, it will spell the end for Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge. The 25 year old has made over 60 appearances for Roma since joining in 2016, as well as 31 caps for Brazil .


Now footage has emerged of another speech he made, this time in the dressing room during half-time of the 2-0 quarter-final victory over Uruguay. I don't give a s--, we're not going home. See you on July 15th - all together!

Pogba, just like Romelu Lukaku for Belgium, was a vocal leader despite not wearing the captain's armband for his country.

"I told everyone that we are 90 minutes away from realising our dream, we are 90 minutes from entering into history books for life, and we were 90 minutes away from making France rock, even children and their children will know about this".

It feels like a coming-of-age tournament for Pogba.
