While happy to don the red of United while in Pogba’s presence, Ibaka has admitted to having closer ties with City in the past.

In July 2013, he took in a visit to the Etihad Stadium and was presented with a customised jersey.

He told reporters at the time: “My favourite City player is Yaya Toure.

“He played for Barcelona while I was out there and he’s a fantastic player. It’s always good to see him do well.”

A few months later, after taking part in a pre-season game in Manchester, Ibaka added: “When I was in Manchester over the summer I got to have a look around Manchester City’s stadium and the facilities are incredible. I’ve been keeping an eye out for them ever since.

“It was great to see them beat Manchester United 4-1. What a win!”
