Now, however, a global pandemic may seem normal, as Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe is embroiled in a controversy centering on extortion…and a wizard…and gangsters.

Seriously.

Let’s explore what Fox Sports is reporting:

French police have opened an investigation into allegations by World Cup winner Paul Pogba that he was threatened and targeted for extortion by gangsters, a source familiar with the matter told AFP on Sunday.

Pogba’s allegations came after his brother Mathias posted a bizarre video online – in four languages ​​(French, Italian, English and Spanish) – promising ‘big reveals’ about the Juventus star.

Alright, it’s not Ordinary at all, but an athlete with a deformed family member isn’t exactly groundbreaking. So what else? Let’s see:

In the video, Mathias Pogba alleges that his brother cast a spell on Kylian Mbappe via a ‘so-called Muslim steeped in witchcraft’ and that the Juve star ‘really wanted to shut me up completely to lie and send me away. jail”.

A statement signed by his lawyers, his mother Yeo Moriba and current agent Rafaela Pimenta said the videos released on Saturday night “unfortunately come as no surprise”.

“They are in addition to threats and extortion attempts by an organized gang against Paul Pogba,” the statement read. “The competent bodies in Italy and France were informed a month ago and there will be no further comments regarding the ongoing investigation.” Mathias Pogba, 32, promised “beautiful revelations about (his) brother Paul Pogba and his agent Rafaela Pimenta”, who took over as head of the company from former agent Mino Raiola who died in April.

Say what now?

So we have Paul Pogba’s brother, who is perhaps too involved in Something…Paul Pogba casting a curse on Mbappe…and the involvement of organized crime. Do you have all that?

BUT WAIT… THERE’S MORE! If you wanted extortion… you got it:

According to two sources close to the Pogba family contacted by AFP, large sums of money are claimed from Paul Pogba if he wants to avoid the dissemination of the allegedly compromising videos. France Info reports that Paul Pogba told investigators he was threatened by “childhood friends and two hooded men armed with assault rifles”.

They claim 13 million euros for “services rendered”. A source familiar with the matter confirmed the information from France Info to AFP.

Paul and Mathias Pogba have things to sort out, but what does Mbappe have to do with it – and why has he – allegedly – been cursed?

These answers are currently (from parts) unknown, but Paul Pogba tried to counter-offer the gangsters by Get French Football News (who must love this story):

Is Paul Pogba just trying to make this go away? Otherwise, what is he hiding… a meeting with this guy?

Mbappe, however, takes this alleged sorcery seriously:

Who needs the Targaryens, when you have the Pogbas?

Either way, this blood feud involving the Dark Arts should do wonders for France’s World Cup chances… but maybe – just maybe – that’s exactly what Hansi Flick and his voodoo priest wanted from the beginning.
