MANCHESTER United star Paul Pogba has made a shock new signing after flying over his own Italian chef to live in England – to cook his favourite spag bol.
The French ace, 23, is a lover of traditional Italian food and has brought his personal chef and her family to live close to him.
The £300,000-a-week star has found a home for the cook and she has enrolled her nine-year-old son in a school in Altrincham, close to where he lives.
She will cook the £89million star’s evening meals when he returns to his £3million, five-bedroom house in Altrincham.
The chef is understood to have cooked the United midfielder’s meals when he played at Italian side Juventus.
A source said: “Paul loves his food and so he’s pulled out all the stops to get his chef over.
“She’s struggling a bit with the weather at the moment though and her little lad can hardly speak a word of English.
“Paul particularly loves spag bol and the way she cooks it for him.”
It is not known if the chef uses Mary Berry’s controversial secret ingredients of white wine and cream which she revealed last week she adds to spag bol.
Police were called to akbar’s indian restaurant last month because plates were thrown by fans after the Frenchman was said to have refused to sign an autograph.
In August he celebrated his move to united by ordering a wing’s Chinese takeaway.
And he has also been spotted gorging himself on plates of beef and chicken in manchester all-you-can-eat restaurant.
In June fellow United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic had joked that he wanted to bring famous French chef Joel Robuchon to his next club.
He posted next to a picture of the pair on instagram: “I will bring my chef from Paris with me to my next destination.”
#FACTS POGBA HIRED A DIETITIAN AT THE AGE OF 16, Pogba was serious about what he does from a very young age. Hiring a dietitian at the age of 16 and following strict guidelines when it comes to food has clearly benefitted the Frenchman.
