Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is a car fanatic. It is all the more surprising that he left his Rolls-Royce with the police for several months. And now you have to dig deep into your pocket.
Paul Pogba did not redeem his Rolls-Royce in England.
The English police then stopped him and confiscated his car.
The superstar was not interested in this, however, he left his Rolls-Royce with the police for 270 days.
Storage costs per day: 25 francs.
They are the personal toys of many football stars around the world. We are talking about expensive and high-horsepower cars. One who knows how to cultivate this passion is the French midfielder Paul Pogba in the service of the English record champions Manchester United. Now the Frenchman gets one of his toys back from the English police. But one after anonther.
It was in June last year when English police officer Paul Pogba stopped near Manchester Airport. The reason: his Rolls-Royce had a license plate that was redeemed in Monaco. In England, however, people who have moved here must put an English license plate on their car after six months at the latest. Because Pogba didn’t have that, his Rolls Royce, which cost almost CHF 400,000, was towed away and stored with the police. Of course, the world champion also had to pay for the towing costs, but those 200 francs hardly hurt him. A court in Tameside near Manchester also ordered a fine of almost 400 francs.
Vehicle fleet in the millions
Anyone who thinks now that Pogba has done everything possible in the world to get his Rolls-Royce back as quickly as possible is seriously mistaken. Either his luxury car is not that important to him or he simply has too much money. Pogba left his Rolls-Royce in storage with the police for over 270 days, as The Sun writes in an online article. Storage costs per day: 25 francs. With 270 days of storage, the total costs are 6750 francs. You won’t even find such an expensive parking space in downtown Zurich. A source told the newspaper: “It’s not just any car, it’s a limited edition Rolls-Royce that costs almost 400,000 francs. Any normal person would want to bring it back immediately and drive it again. ” It’s horrific to see that it took Pogba months to organize the necessary papers, the source said.
The French superstar may have acted so late because there are other sports cars in his fleet, which together cost well over a million francs. So he was probably never dependent on using public transport. At Manchester United he earns around 330,000 francs a week. Yes, you read that right, per week!
