Paul Pogba's Rolls-Royce was seized by police for having French number plates

Manchester United star was seen driving on the M56 and was stopped by officers as he exited near Manchester Airport.

Greater Manchester Police reportedly took the special edition car on the A4538 near Hale, Cheshire, while the midfielder was loaded into the back of the patrol car.

Laws state that foreign cars that have been in Britain for more than six months in a year must be registered with the DVLA and fitted with UK plates.

But owners residing in the UK must register their cars within two weeks of importing it.

The 27-year-old is due to make his long-awaited return to the pitch as United travel to Tottenham on Friday night.

The Frenchman has spent the majority of the season on the sidelines through injury and has been linked with several moves away from Old Trafford.

Pogba will have a week to get the car back and will also have to pay £150 as well as £20 for every day it’s held.

Greater Manchester Police said: 'At around 12.55pm, police on a routine patrol in the Trafford area stopped a vehicle on Hale Road.

'The vehicle was seized under section 165 of the Road Traffic Act.

'A 27-year-old man has been reported for driving otherwise in accordance with a UK driving licence.'
