Manchester United star Paul Pogba has finally retrieved his £300,000 Rolls-Royce from a police impound lot nine months after it was seized for having Monaco plates.
The World Cup winner was pulled over by police near Manchester Airport in June after they spotted the Wraith Black Badge had foreign-registered licence plates.
He was left with a £150 towing bill, before magistrates slapped him with a £220 fine, plus an additional charge of £85 in court costs and took three points off his licence in December.
Nine months since he was first pulled over, Pogba, 28, the luxury car has been spotted at the France star’s £3million Cheshire home – still bearing Monaco-registered plates.

After letting it sit in police storage since the summer, Pogba had to pay more than £5,000 in fees to get it back, according to The Sun.
A source told the paper: ‘It’s incredible to think Paul took so long to sort out getting his car back.
‘It’s not a little runaround — it’s a stunning limited edition £300,000 Rolls-Royce which anybody would love to sit in, let alone own.
‘Instead, it gathered dust because Paul took absolutely ages to sort the necessary paperwork.’
Any foreign car that has been in the UK for more than six months in a single year must be registered with the DVLA and fitted with British plates.
If the car is owned by a UK resident, it must be registered with the DVLA within two weeks of it being imported.

While the £300,000 luxury car was seized, Pogba, who returned to Manchester United after a £90million transfer from Juventus in 2016, was seen driving a fleet of high-priced cars.
Among them was a £260,000 Ferrari 812 Superfast, while the midfielder was also seen in a £270,000 Lamborghini Aventador and a £132,000 Bentley Flying Spur.
Locals also saw the star driving a £115,000 Maserati Quattroporte, a £40,000 Chevrolet Camaro and a £100,000 Audi RS6 Power R.
