For weeks, Manchester United fans have been preaching a steady gospel of skepticism, minimal hope and sensible doubt upon hearing the incessant rumours of Paul Pogba’s return. Now, they may have to change their tune.
A report in Sunday’s L’Équipe has a huge update in the seemingly interminable saga.
José Mourinho is currently acting as if Paul Pogba is already a Manchester United player, according to tomorrow's L'Équipe.

The Parisien publication is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most trusted sources and have an excellent record on exclusives, particularly those involving French players.
The transfer of the summer, if not the century, is edging ever-closer.
United leave for their pre-season tour of Asia on Wednesday, could Pogba be travelling with them? It’s looking more and more likely with every passing day.
If the French starlet was to complete the switch, the fee is likely to be in the region of a world-record breaking £100 million. The Red Devils infamously let the midfielder go for next to nothing back in 2012.
His big-money return would surely see Mourinho’s new side become title favourites as we head towards what could be an incredible Premier League season.
