PAUL POGBA went from agony to ecstasy during Manchester United training after having the ball whacked against him before it bounced off the post and in.
The 26-year-old had the ball booted into his gut by Ashley Young who attempted to clear the ball away from danger during a drill in Perth, Australia.
But the ex-Aston Villa ace smashed the ball against the 2018 World Cup winner, who dropped immediately to the floor in agony.
Pogba was back to his knees just seconds later as he raised his arms in the air after the ball ricocheted into the bottom left corner.
Team-mates rushed over to celebrate with the former Juventus midfielder, while Young was left in disbelief over what just happened.
Much talk has been made of Pogba’s future this summer, with Real Madrid and the Old Lady believed to be keen on snaring him away from Old Trafford.
It has been claimed that he wants to leave the club in this transfer window as he doesn’t believe he can win major trophies under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this week that the Norwegian boss is desperate for Pogba to stay at United for just one more year.
He said: “The player [Pogba] has done nothing wrong. He has been respectful and professional in every way. The club knows his feelings for a long time.

“It is a shame that other people only like to criticise without the right information and I am also sorry that the club does not take any position against this.
“Hopefully there will be soon a satisfying solution for all parties.”
United have reportedly already identified Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio as Pogba’s replacement should he depart the side this summer.
