The wife of Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho may well have just inadvertently confirmed the biggest transfer in football history.
OK, maybe I’m jumping the gun a little there, but eagle-eyed Twitter users reckon they’ve spotted Paul Pogba’s name on a tactics board in Mourinho’s office.
Matilde Mourinho, Jose’s wife of 27 years and the mother of his two children, took to the social media website to share a picture of her husband on the day he flew out to Shanghai for United’s pre-season tour of China.
Alongside the picture, she wrote: “Ready to Beijing.”

On the left side of the picture, a tactics board clearly contains a number of players’ surnames such as Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Rojo, Martial and Depay.
The vast majority of United fans will be disappointed to notice the presence of Marouane Fellaini’s name on the board, but the name above Fellaini’s is causing quite a stir on Twitter.
Due to the blurry nature of the picture, it’s impossible to make out exactly whose that name is, but many users claim it is Pogba’s.
“Pogba is above Fellaini,” one user wrote, while another said: “Pogba it looks like above Fellaini in the midfield.”
One excited Tweeter simply posted: “He’s f****** coming! Go on Jose!”
