“There will be many elements and testimonies to confirm my words. All of this is likely to be explosive and make a lot of noise.”

After allegedly dragging Pogba into a flat in Paris in March, the group demanded €13m for protecting him over the past 13 years. After allegedly being accosted at Juventus’ training ground in Turin in July, Pogba is believed to have decided to tell his club, who he joined on a free transfer from Manchester United this summer. They then contacted the police.

Pogba reportedly believes that the group will try to broadcast messages he sent about Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, in order to try and damage his reputation and standing in the France national team.
