Paul Pogba has left Juventus and joined Chelsea—in his current game of Football Manager.

The France midfielder is relaxing the same way many football fans do, by playing the addictive management simulator, but his choice of team might come as a surprise.

Pogba, who was on the books at Manchester United as a teenager before coming to prominence in Serie A, joins Frank Lampard in the centre of Chelsea's midfield.

The eagle-eyed folks at Off The Post spotted the detail in this video of the France team in Brazil. Pogba's game can be spotted about 95 seconds in:

Pogba, 21, has gone back to Juventus for some of his team-mates to boost Chelsea, while he's also brought in the likes of Jese Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

And—note to Jose Mourinho—he kept Juan Mata.

But it doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be angling for a move to the Blues in real life. According to Sports Interactive Director Miles Jacobson, responsible for creating the game: 

The full XI for Pogba's Chelsea vs. Arsenal game, as per Off the Post: Petr Cech; Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, Kevin Asamoah; Paul Pogba, Frank Lampard; Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata; Jese Rodriguez
