Wash this space: Laundry ladies snare Pogba kit scoop

As Manchester United prepare to break the world's transfer record to re-sign Paul Pogba, the first pictures of the France star back in Red Devils colours have emerged via an unlikely source.

The powerhouse club's extensive in-house media team are likely to be preparing an array of social media assets to mark the 23-year-old's big-money capture.  

United announced on Sunday that Juventus had granted Pogba permission to undergo a medical ahead of his proposed move for a fee that could reportedly rise to as much as €120m.

Pogba consequently flew in to Manchester on Monday and made his way to Carrington ahead of his physical examination. 

While there he had time for a quick photo with the club's launderette staff, which quickly made its way on to social media.
