Paul Pogba recently spoke to Romelu Lukaku ahead of the latter’s move to Manchester United – in an interview which ended with the midfielder pushing an ESPN reporter into a swimming pool!
Pogba and Lukaku’s bromance is set to become much stronger with the striker closing in on a £75million move to Old Trafford.
And the Everton forward admits Pogba is one of the key reasons he is joining United ahead of Chelsea.
“I’ve been talking to [Pogba] for about seven or eight years and now he’s living in Manchester,” he told ESPN.

“He was explaining to me how it went at the club, and it triggered something in my head. When the opportunity came, I didn’t have to think twice. I’m really excited.”
