Paul Pogba hard at work in training with French squad

by Tanveer Arayan

Paul Pogba has been seen working hard in training with the French national side ahead of their clash with Sweden and England over the next week.

The Frenchman, named as WhoScored’s Europa League Player of the Season soon after victory in Stockholm, has been an integral aspect of Jose Mourinho’s line-up ever since re-joining the club for a world record £89m fee back in August.

He enjoyed some time off by taking a religious visit to Saudi Arabia at the start of Ramadan, but has now returned in order to prepare for the clash with Sweden on Friday.

Watching Sweden without Zlatan, if you have done so for whatever reason, feels somewhat like eating a burger without the actual meat inside, but this upcoming clash is actually worth watching as a Manchester United fan.

Victor Lindelof, reportedly close to a €40m move to Old Trafford, will go up against two other targets in the form of AS Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe and Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, and it has been suggested that the Lindelof deal will be completed soon after Sweden’s clash with Didier Deschamps’ men.

Benjamin Mendy, another target, could also feature at left-back for Les Bleus, rendering this game as a superb chance for supporters to learn more about a number of players who could be at Old Trafford next season.
