Manchester United transfer target Paul Pogba may appear to be on a never-ending holiday as he takes in a variety of American tourist hot-spots - but he has found a novel way to keep in shape during a stop off in New York.

Pogba has spent time in Miami and Las Vegas over the last couple of weeks, with his regular social media posts ensuring he has rarely been out of the headlines as he prepares to seal a world record breaking €110m move from Juventus to United in the coming days.

While a deal believed to be in place for the Frenchman to return to Old Trafford, misguided reports in Italy had claimed the transfer would be confirmed last week.

Yet the rubber stamp has yet to be applied to the Pogba transfer, with his arrival in New York on Tuesday sparking suggestions that Real Madrid may make a late bid to sign the player as they are in the same city preparing for a pre-season game on Thursday.

United remain confident that they will announce the Pogba deal in the coming days, yet fears have been expressed that the 23-year-old star was over-partying in America and may not be fully fit for the new season.

His latest social media post suggests he is keeping himself in shape ahead of the new season, with this kick-boxing video confirming he is working hard on his physical conditioning ahead of his probable return to Manchester.

Conor McGregor would doubtless be impressed with some of these moves:
