DONE DEAL: Pogba Joins New Club In France
While the world is keen to see if Paul Pogba will indeed be leaving Manchester United for another club in January, his older brother Mathias has secured a move and joined a new club in France.
Paul Pogba's older brother Mathias has joined Tours in the French third tier after spending more than a year without a club.
While his younger brother is linked with a move away from Manchester United amid reports of a training-ground spat with Jose Mourinho, the 28-year-old striker has secured a deal at Tours after a gap in his career.
The Guinea international last played professionally for Sparta Rotterdam, his appearance in a 1-0 defeat to ADO Den Haag on April 23, 2017 being his final game for the club.
Pogba told his new club's official website: "I chose Tours, because in the different interviews I had with all the interested clubs, only the leaders of Tours understood me and convinced me to join their project.

"Since February, and my injury, I have trained hard to return to the best of my form, and it paid off because the doctors are very confident.
"The rehabilitation was long and difficult, but I never gave up on returning to the best level."
Pogba previously played in the Scottish Premiership with Partick Thistle, in League One with Crawley Town and in Serie B with Pescara.
"My main goals in joining Tours are to get back on the pitch, to have fun, but also to help Tours and my team-mates to reach Ligue 2," he said.
"I feel physically and mentally 100 per cent."
It is not expected that Paul Pogba will be making a move to France even If he dumps Manchester United in January as widely expected.
Only PSG can afford the kind of wages and transfer fee that Pogba commands but they have never shown any interest in his services.
Instead, it is the duo of Barcelona and Juventus that are seen as favourites in the race sign the one-time Most Expensive player in the world.
