Manchester United midfielder and record signing Paul Pogba was spotted on Monday visiting the hotel the Barcelona team were camped ahead of their UEFA Champions League tie with Manchester City.
Mundo Deportivo, a Spanish sports daily, reported the world’s most expensive player arriving at the Lowry Hotel – the same Jose Mourinho is currently staying.
The five-star hotel is located in Greater Manchester, England, and is named after an artist L. S. Lowry.
Speculations suggest the France international was probably visiting Barca defender Samuel Umtiti, who was part of the France squad with Pogba at Euro 2016 earlier this year.
