Rapper Stormzy lifts lid on Pogba signing with Manchester United with video

Monday August 8th, 2016

It's not exactly a secret that Paul Pogba is going to be signing with Manchester United, but English rapper and Manchester United fan Stormzy lifted the lid a little early by posting a music video made for Adidas to celebrate the transfer.

Pogba is expected to cost Manchester United a world-record fee to bring him back to Old Trafford from Juventus, four years after he left the club for free. The video features Stormzy in United's new blue uniform along with a dancing Pogba.

Pogba arrived in Manchester Monday for his physical, which he reportedly passed. He's expected to be unveiled as the club's latest signing no later than Tuesday.

That is, of course, if you don't count Stormzy doing the honors in a Facebook post that has since been taken down, yet ripped for all social media viewers to see (Warning: there's an explicit word in here):

Fresh off winning the Community Shield against Leicester on Sunday, Manchester United opens the new Premier League season this coming Sunday at AFC Bournemouth.
