FIVE Jaw-dropping Paul Pogba Goals

He joins Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and of course boss Jose Mourinho as fellow new arrivals to Old Trafford. To give fans a flavour of the sort of power, pace and pizzazz he’ll be bringing to the Premier League, here are FIVE of his best strikes…

vs Udinese, 2013
It’s a chilly January in Turin and Serie A’s finest have not long been back from their winter break. As the match heads to half time goalless, Pogba makes his stunning mark to wake everybody up from their Christmas slumber. Juve go on to win the game 4-0, with Pogba grabbing another in the second half. Filmed by a fan from the stands, this video is recorded from the perfect angle to show the pace and whip the midfielder manages to get on the ball...

vs Napoli, 2013
Rafa Benitez’s Napoli side were on a five-match winning run when they arrived in Turin, harbouring title ambitions of their own. But an early Fernando Llorente strike sent Juve on their way before a sublime free-kick from Andrea Pirlo was topped off with this beaut from Pogba. Juve overhauled Napoli that day with their 3-0 victory, before catching Roma on the way to their third league title in a row...

vs Napoli, 2015
It’s Napoli again, and yet another textbook volley. This time two years later in Naples, with Pogba finishing off a scrappy exchange in the Napoli box with jaw-dropping perfection to give his side the lead. Once again it would inspire the Bianconeri to victory en route to yet more Serie A glory...

vs Iceland, 2016
Pogba has six goals for his country, with this the most recent as France overcame the plucky Icelanders at Euro 2016 to carve a way through to the semi-finals. While it may not be the most beautiful of goals, it demonstrates Pogba’s less-heralded aerial prowess, as he out-jumps several Icelandic defenders to power home.

vs Derby, 2011
Of course the coaching staff at Manchester United know exactly what they’re getting in Pogba, given that many will have worked with him at youth level after he joined the Old Trafford ranks from Le Havre as a gangly 16-year-old. A fantastic example of the deftness of touch he possesses combined with his powerful finishing can be seen in this 2011 clip from academy football, when he skins two Derby midfielders before planting a shot past the helpless keeper.
