PHOTO: Paul Pogba takes selfie with Juventus team-mates Patrice Evra and Carlos Tevez

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been linked with Chelsea this summer, is on his way to Australia as Juventus’s pre-season tour continues.

Juventus left Indonesia on Thursday for the second leg of their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia.

The Italian champions kicked off their pre-season campaign with a comprehensive victory over the ISL Stars at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta on Wednesday.

Fernando Llorente scored thrice for the Bianconeri as they overpowered their opponents 8-1 in front of a strong Indonesian fanbase (click here to read more).

Paul Pogba started the match on Wednesday and played his part in his side’s win, continuing the good form he exhibited for France at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil earlier this summer.

The 21-year-old midfielder took the following selfie of himself along with his teammates Carlos Tevez and Patrice Evra, both of whom are former Manchester United players.

Pogba was also on the books of the Red Devils before leaving the Manchester outfit on a free transfer in the summer of 2012 after not getting enough playing time under then manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

In the past two years at Juve, Pogba has established himself as one of the best young midfielders in the world and has been linked with a move to Premier League giants Chelsea this summer.

However, the youngster seems set to remain with the Turin club for one more season at least, as Juve have insisted on more than one occasion that he will not be sold.

Pogba will now hope to give yet another good performance for Juventus in Australia and step up his game for the start of the new Serie A campaign.
