The World Cup winner laughs as he manages to nutmeg her following some deft touches

In a clip posted on the World Cup winner’s Instagram, Pogba showed off the clip of him showing off his close ball control and keeping it away from his mum as she attempts to take it off him. 

Eventually he nutmegs her following two deft touches and laughs as she walks away after being fooled by her son’s tricky footwork. 

Writing on the post, he said: ‘When your mum tell you she played football before. Love and spent time with your parents before they leave this world. #NoMercy #SonVsMum’

When the football season eventually returns Pogba will have to show he still has something to offer now he is edging to full fitness, as rumours continue to swirl around his future at the club.  

Speculation continues to link the 27-year-old away from Old Trafford with his agent and others close to him tease a transfer earlier on in the season.  

His agent Mino Raiola has flouted the idea of helping him sign for Real Madrid and risked the wrath of United by claiming that the midfielder was not the club’s ‘prisoner’ in a war of words with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Last month Pogba trained in a Juventus shirt as a tribute to COVID-19 stricken Blaise Matuidi

With the Frenchman nearing full fitness, he could feature for United when football returns 

His brother added fuel to the fire by claiming that ‘everyone knows Paul wants to leave Manchester United’. 

Last month Pogba was seen stepping up his fitness at home, showing off a video of him practicing sprint drills with the ball – although he risked the wrath of United supporters by wearing the shirt of his old club Juventus.

However, he insisted that he was simply showing solidarity towards former teammate Blaise Matuidi after he was diagnosed with coronavirus.
