Le Havre: Pogba ruling provisional

Le Havre have retaliated to Manchester United’s announcement that Paul Pogba has been granted international clearance to sign for the Red Devils.

The French outfit claim FIFA’s ruling on Thursday is still to be validated, after the Premier League champions made a statement on their website confirming the protracted signing of the 16-year-old.

"As opposed to what Manchester United specifies, FIFA did not validate the transfer of Paul Pogba but has, like it systematically does in this type of case, issued a provisional international certificate," read a Le Havre statement.

“The delivery of the provisional international certificate does not prejudge anything resulting from the case file.

“This procedure has been the same for the previous cases of Charles N'Zogbia, Laure Lepilleur and Gael Kakuta and we know today the result of each one of these cases.”

Despite the insistence of the Ligue 2 club that nothing has changed with the matter still far from being resolved, FIFA ruling does entitle Pogba to play for United’s U18 team in the meantime.
