Manchester United fans couldn't help but get a little excited over adidas' new advert that sees Paul Pogba star alongside Mesut Ozil for the return of the iconic Predator boot.

The German sportswear giant put out their new video on Wednesday morning, and it stars the Frenchman looking on at some dabbing mannequins, a poster of Zinedine Zidane and then a football freestyler, before staring down Arsenal star Ozil at the end.

The advert is only a minute long, but Ozil's inclusion sent United fans into overdrive - the German star has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in January.

The 29-year-old is out of contract next summer and looks highly unlikely at this point to sign fresh terms at the Emirates, and reuniting with old manager Jose Mourinho is the narrative that's being pushed, and certainly one that's being bought into by Red Devils supporters.

A lot of those supporters have taken adidas' advert as a sign that Pogba is back up to his old tricks of playing 'agent' - something he supposedly did to help the club sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer.

He is also thought to be a major player in eventually bringing Antoine Griezmann to the club - something that would have happened already if not for Atletico Madrid's transfer ban being upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

United may face stiff competition for Ozil's signature in January, with Barcelona keen to secure him on a cut-price deal, if they fail to land Philippe Coutinho again.
