Manchester United fans have long been tantalised by the prospect of Paulo Dybala joining their club and it now looks like a transfer may be closer than ever — especially as the Premier League side appear to have the right man on the job.
Having previously shared a successful season together at Juventus, Paul Pogba wished Dybala a happy 24th birthday by sharing a screengrab of a FaceTime chat between the pair while also casually throwing in the "Agent P" hashtag.

Pogba first used his Agent P alter-ego when he played his part in persuading Romelu Lukaku to join him at Manchester United over the course of last summer, so it's only right that fans sit up and take notice.
He (Agent P) has since gone on to take on a life of his own.
Agent P never sleeps

Pogba's actual agent, Mino Raiola, has also said very complimentary things about Dybala in the recent past, openly stating that he believes the Argentinian star will move on from Bianconeri before long.
"In the end, Dybala will leave," Raiola speculated back in September.
"And if he does he should go to a team with a project already formed where he can join. Because he is still too young to be the leader of a new project."
Which club could he possibly be talking about?
