Ladybird poppies, nasturtiums, helip-terum, Paul Pogba's agent negotiating a contract with a club he doesn't play for.

Mino Raiola is out there calculating how much Pogba should receive after a transfer that hasn't taken place, to a club that hasn't bought him, for participation in matches that would constitute a breach of contract if he put so much as one toe on the pitch.

Why? The only Pogba who would be worth an upgrade on his current Manchester United contract is the one who plays for France - and United have never had him in five years of searching.

When United did that, and their midfield came second best because Pogba is not the most diligent defender, the answer always was to play him higher upfield so others could screen behind.

Do United take £43m, and cut their losses, or do they feel Pogba is worth that in what he might do for them in his final season?

The odd consistent spell, but just once in five campaigns have his fellow professionals put Pogba in their Premier League team of the year.

This is the influential club captain, an outstanding performer in important matches, and he could leave before a season in which the club must wrest its crown from Manchester City, with competition from an ever-improving Chelsea and the rebuilt Manchester United.
