Manchester United Give Us the First Peak at Paul Pogba in Red in FIFA 17

Manchester United have got their legions of supporters all over the world right up for the new forthcoming edition of FIFA, after giving us a sneak peak of Paul Pogba‘s virtual avatar in a United shirt.

As you no doubt know by now, the midfielder became the most expensive footballer of all-time earlier this week when he completed his move to United from Juventus for a fee of around £100 million.
