After a summer of speculation, Â£89 million football star Paul Pogba appears to be on his way back to Manchester United, pending a medical.
While Pogba prepares to join Jose Mourinho’s new-look squad, Twitter has responded with the only logical hashtag.

Some fans have let their appreciation for United executive Ed Woodward, who is overseeing the deal, run a little wild.

Some aren’t so convinced by the big-money move however.
Does #Pogback refer to the backwards steps he has taken in his career? He's gone from a team challenging for the CL to a Europa league team

What Man Utd could have spent the â¬120m for Paul Pogba on. We'd rather have the 450 Ferraris. pic.twitter.com/1IaW75Gcsr

Whatever the reaction from Twitter, one thing clear is the biggest saga of the summer transfer window is set to end. Having already acquired Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly this window, Manchester United fans must be rather pleased…
