United to cut Pogba deal, says player's barber

Milan - Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba will join Manchester United this weekend, according to the barber who styled the French star's hair blonde ahead of an expected move to Old Trafford.

Pogba's return to the club he left for free in 2012 was placed under doubt on Thursday after his agent Mino Raiola posted a message on Twitter.

"There is no deal done regarding Paul Pogba, lots of bla bla bla," Raiola said.

But the barber who gave 'Pogboom' a new hairstyle during his ongoing summer holidays with friends in Miami was less secretive about his client's possible future destination.

"Had to change up Pog haircolour for his new team #ManchesterUnited," said Criztofferson, the barber, on an Instagram post which showed him cutting Pogba's hair in his Miami salon.

The post was later removed, perhaps at the behest of Pogba, Raiola or bosses at Manchester United.

It was replaced with a more sobre message which read: "Cutting up @PaulPogba for the weekend".

The second post drew dozens of comments from followers of both Manchester United and Juventus, who are expected to cut a deal that could see Pogba move to Old Trafford for a new world record transfer of 125 million euros.

Although fans expect a deal to be made, United manager Jose Mourinho was circumspect when asked by media during pre-season preparations in China.

"I don't confirm and I don't deny. I cannot tell you," Mourinho said on the eve of the International Champions Cup match against Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai Friday.

Pogba joined United in 2009 but, after becoming frustrated with the lack of first-team chances under former manager Alex Ferguson, he quit the English giants for free to join Juventus in 2012.

The 23-year-old has since won four Serie A titles, two Italian Cups and emerged as the most exciting midfield player of his generation.
