Man United pre-season: Paul Pogba & Jesse Lingard
Simon Peach, the chief football writer for the Press Association, has posted an eye-catching video on social media on Tuesday morning.
The reporter is in Australia with Man United’s squad as they start their pre-season.
It’s only day one of the tour, but already everyone’s focused on Paul Pogba.
