This Man Utd footballer dancing to Rick Astley is the greatest thing you'll see today

Paul Pogba is a Manchester United player once again.

After months of speculation, the 23-year-old finally put pen to paper on a deal with the club this week, four years on from leaving them from Juventus.

As was the case with Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier in the summer, once again United were beaten to the punch when it came to announcing their new signing.

Whereas an Instagram post from Zlatan confirmed that he was Old Trafford bound, Pogba's switch to United appeared to be rubber stamped by an adidas video which featured the midfielder alongside grime artist and United fan, Stormzy.

In the age in which we live in, it was all so predictable that someone would take the footage of Pogba dancing about to Stormzy and apply it to something else. Sure enough, not even a couple of days after Pogba signed on the dotted line for United, it's happened.

Posted by @MPH1982, Pogba's moves have been edited in to Rick Astley's 1987 banger, Never Gonna Give You Up. Having  spent the the last couple of hours watching this on repeat, we can confirm that it's an absolute work of art.

Did anyone else spot how eerily similar Pogba's dance moves were to Astley's? It's uncanny.

No offence, Stormzy - we much prefer Rick's version.
