Pogba could potentially be the next big name to join German third division side KFC Uerdingen - and not Manchester United Paul Pogba, obviously, but his big brother Mathias Pogba.

According to Revier Sport, the 27-year-old is currently on trial at the ambitious German third division side who have former Bundesliga players Kevin Großkreutz, Stefan Aigner and Maximilian Beister in their squad.

Mathias Pogba will train with the team until Thursday and hopes to prove himself worthy of a deal. Most recently, the forward played for Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam in the 2016/17 season, but his deal was mutually terminated after the season.

The 27-year-old is the twin brother of Florentin Pogba who is also currently without a club. They have both appeared for the Guinean national team.
