Whether it was a courtesy visit or paid with a genuine intention to accept an offer, time will tell. Paul Pogba was in Saudi Arabia last weekend and, according to local sources, could have visited the premises of the Etihad: the club that entrusted the technical direction to Nuno Espirito Santo and who has already scored Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante. They will also try with the Juventus midfielder, who is expected to be in Turin in the next few hours, to continue his physical preparation, with the idea of ​​making himself available to Max Allegri as soon as possible.


In Saudi Arabia they shop in Europe, with the clear goal of making the Saudi League one of the most prestigious leagues in the world within a few years. A mediator has already met in recent weeks with a Saudi envoy representing Rafaela Pimenta (Pogba’s agent), who is responsible for checking the player’s availability and understanding his physical conditions.

The Frenchman has already resumed training for a week and will observe an individual program at least until leaving the tour in America with Juventus. It may seem focused on the present, but the recent reconnaissance campaign – documented – could provide a glimpse into the future. To understand how close maybe. Paul jokes in a video that instantly ended up on social media: “Not today, who knows tomorrow…” He responds to those who ask him if he will play in Arabia. The interlocutor insists: “But to Al-Ittihad or to Al-Ahly?” Pogba laughs again: “I don’t know.”
