With Paul Pogba’s world-record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United complete a number of footballers have welcomed him to the Premier League… and John Mikel Obi has joined that growing number.

It’s worth noting that France went on to win that game, with Pogba scoring in a 2-0 win, but this is very much a case of shots fired complete with a cheeky wink. Can Pogba step up?
We will find out when United travel to Stamford Bridge on October 22.
