Makkah: The world's most expensive footballer performed Umrah in Makkah, Islam's holiest city, as he started fasting in the holy month of Ramadan, BBC reported Monday.
French national Paul Pogba shared a picture of himself in Makkah on Sunday, captioning it the "most beautiful thing I've seen in my life.”
He also sent a tweet wishing everyone a "happy Ramadan.”
The 24-year-old became the most expensive footballer in history last summer, after Manchester United paid Juventus a reported $114 million fee.
On Wednesday, he lifted the Europa League Cup after Manchester United beat Ajax in the final in Stockholm.
Following the end of the season, he shared a short video of himself with a suitcase, saying he was "en route" for his prayers.
Pogba is reported to have visited Makkah at least once before, when he performed the Hajj, a spiritual journey every healthy adult Muslim who can afford it is has to make at least once in their lifetime.
