‘Finally on the same team as Sancho’: Paul Pogba teases Manchester United fans and sparks transfer speculation as he stars in Pepsi advert alongside Dortmund and England winger, who came close to Old Trafford move last summer

  • Jadon Sancho has been a long-standing transfer target for Manchester United
  • United were unable to agree a deal with Borussia Dortmund for him last summer
  • Paul Pogba has teased United fans by sharing a cryptic post on his social media
  • Pogba wrote ‘finally on the same team’ alongside a video of them both playing 

Paul Pogba has teased Manchester United fans by sharing a cryptic post about the club’s long-standing transfer target Jadon Sancho, suggesting the two players are set to play for the same team.

The Red Devils chased Sancho for the entirety of the summer transfer window but were ultimately unable to agree a fee for the 20-year-old winger with Borussia Dortmund asking for £100million.

However, Pogba has added fuel to the fire regarding Sancho’s future in Germany after sharing a video of himself featuring in Pepsi’s latest advert alongside the England star.

Paul Pogba teased Man United fans over Jadon Sancho by sharing a cryptic post on Instagram

The United midfielder is filmed performing several keep-ups as he drinks from a can of Pepsi, while Sancho does the same with Pepsi Max.

Pogba then shared the post on Instagram and captioned it: ‘Finally on the same team @Sanchooo10’.

The Frenchman did, however, add a winking emoji, before revealing it was for ‘the @PepsiGlobal team!’ 

United fans were ecstatic about the prospect of signing the England star last summer and were left deflated when the deal fell through.

However, Pogba’s latest post has reignited hope that Sancho could feature in the Premier League next season.

Many fans took to Twitter to share their excitement about the United player’s post and some even referred to him as ‘agent Pogba’.  

Sancho’s record-breaking performance against Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday showed why United have shown such interest in the winger.

Sancho became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach 50 assists in less than 100 games after teeing up Mahmoud Dahoud’s opener.

Sancho, who reached the milestone aged just 20 years and 339 days, then went on to double Dortmund’s advantage from the spot against the strugglers.
