At one point the £89million midfielder cracks a joke in which the Barca ace appears to take exception.

That is because it has been reported that the hot topic of discussion was over Pogba's French team-mate N'Golo Kante.

During the World Cup, Les Bleus supporters came up with a chant about the Chelsea enforcer which included the line "He stopped Leo Messi."

And when Pogba was relaying the lyrics back to the Argentine superstar, he replied: "That's a lie!"

Manchester United fans ask what Paul Pogba’s cryptic ‘broken heart’ haircut message means?

The pair were talking in Spanish which emphasises Pogba's talent for speaking languages.

As week as speaking fluent French and English, he also knows Italian from his time at Juventus.

United fans believe Pogba's meeting with Messi could tempt him with a move to Barcelona.

The £89million midfielder has been linked with a move to Barcelona with super agent Mino Raiola desperate to orchestrate a move.

His bad relationship with Jose Mourinho has sparked rumours that the Catalan giants are readying a January offer and United would be willing to accept should they receive £200million for his signature.
