Manchester United have been busy in the transfer market, and it’s clearly paying off.
They’ve won their first two games in the Premier League, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has bagged four goals already, and they have one of the best footballing bromances blossoming before their very eyes.
Eric Bailly and Paul Pogba have only known each other a matter of weeks, and already they have a friendship that most of us can only dream of.
They have a secret handshake:
And it’s not only after a comfortable 2-0 win that they’re enjoying each other’s company, as they were captured laughing and joking as they arrived for training with United:
I can’t help but feel sorry for Anthony Martial in this clip, as he looks like a total third wheel when the bromance is in full swing behind him.
Maybe he’s still hurting from losing the number nine shirt to Zlatan? Or maybe he’s just wishing he was cool enough to form a friendship like ‘Pogbailly’ as I’m now christening it.
The mood around United has clearly taken an upwards turn since Louis van Gaal left, which is understandable as training drills now include the rarely seen ‘pass it forward’ technique.
And it’s obviously had an effect on the squad relationships, although it’d be nice if Wayne Rooney and Phil Jones didn’t follow suit.
