Paul Pogba is one of the most brilliant midfielders in modern football, having achieved success with teams such as Juventus and Manchester United, as well as on the international scene for France in their triumph of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
However, this great midfielder is going through a tough time which started with a serious injury in his Juventus return and now disturbing issues regarding Paul Pogba brother.
Why is Paul Pogba brother threatening the French World Cup winner?
The bizarre emerging narrative involving France World Cup champion and Juventus player Paul Pogba has notably revealed police investigators that his brother, Mathias, has been part of a systematic campaign to blackmail him for €13m, according to France Info on Sunday night.
The situation was brought to light yesterday by the social media posting of a video by Mathias Pogba, who said he was set to reveal important findings regarding his brother, Kylian Mbappé, and Rafaela Pimenta. The striker’s revelation was subsequently followed on Sunday by an official communiqué from Paul Pogba’s camp, which confirmed that the ex-Manchester United star was now the target of a blackmail attempt.
It has already been revealed that French prosecutors have launched an inquiry into the suspected “attempted blackmail by an organized gang.” Paul Pogba brother then resorted to social media to say that the media was spinning things and that his brother lied to Italian police but, France Info has obtained information about the French probe, and they are shocking.
During multiple interviews with police, Pogba is claimed to have stated that he was trapped during an incident in Paris by boyhood pals and two hooded individuals armed with assault guns. A group that wanted €13 million from him, included his brother Mathias Pogba.
The 2018 reigning champion claims to have been threatened and extorted by his elder brother and boyhood buddies.
Paul Pogba has told Organized Crime division detectives that he was momentarily held hostage by boyhood pals and two hooded guys armed with assault guns. The group, he claims, wanted €13 million from him and has threatened him numerous times since, including at the Juventus training center in Turin, where he informed police he saw his brother Mathias Pogba among the accused.
Paul Pogba took advantage of the chance to visit his family in Lagny-sur-Marne between March 25th and March 29th, when the French national team hosted Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa in friendly matches.
Friends are said to have hauled him to a Paris flat and criticized him for not assisting them financially since he became a professional player. Among them were two armed men who sought €13 million for “services performed,” alleging that they had quietly safeguarded him for 13 years.
