Pogba: The rise of Manchester United's Homecoming Hero
When Manchester United re-signed their former youth player Paul Pogba for a world record fee in the summer of 2016, they made a powerful statement. Together with the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. It signalled their determination to attract the best players in the world to Old Trafford, despite three seasons of underachievement. In the four years since he had left the Reds, Pogba had blossomed into a midfielder of undoubted world class, his power and dynamism propelling Juventus to a host of club titles and the French national team to within a whisker of winning Euro 2016. With exclusive insights from those closest to the player, Luca Caioli's Pogba is an in-depth portrait of one of modern football's greatest talents.

Suarez, Messi, Neymar: Inside Barcelona's Unstoppable Strikeforce
Barcelona has long been regarded as a home of beautiful football. In July 2014, already boasting Lionel Messi and Neymar, Barca added Luis Suarez to complete a forward line that was undeniably special, even by their own high standards. They had taken greatly differing paths from South America to the starting line-up at the Nou Camp. Messi joined Barcelona aged just thirteen, Neymar served a spectacular apprenticeship in Brazil and Suarez enjoyed spells with Ajax and Liverpool - three prestigious educations with an emphasis on attractive play. Through exclusive testimonies from friends, families, managers and teammates, acclaimed football writer Luca Caioli documents their individual journeys and examines the phenomenal success of Barca's `MSN' years to date, including the 2015/16 league and cup double.

Suarez: The Remarkable Story Behind Football's Most Explosive Talent
Bestselling football biographer Luca Caioli tackles his most controversial subject yet - Barcelona, Uruguay and former Liverpool forward Luis Suarez. When in late September 2013 Luis Suarez returned from a landmark ten-match ban for biting an opponent, one in a long line of high-profile misdemeanours, it seemed unlikely that he would ever win over his critics. In the months that followed he scored an astonishing 31 times, propelling Liverpool back into the Champions League following a four-year absence. The World Cup in Brazil followed but Suarez saw his action-packed tournament curtailed after just two games, two goals and one moment of madness, with favourable comparisons to Messi and Ronaldo once again overshadowed by those with Jekyll and Hyde. Acclaimed football biographer Luca Caioli provides an in-depth look at one of football's most enigmatic characters, from humble Uruguayan beginnings to his big-money move to Barcelona in July 2014.

Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann were the stand-out stars of France's World Cup-winning team, drawing comparisons to the great class of '98. Be it Pogba's high-profile apprenticeships in the Premier League and Italy's Serie A, Griezmann's seizing his opportunity in Real Sociedad's youth academy or Mbappe's dazzling performances for AS Monaco in the UEFA Champions League, all three have forged their own distinct routes to the very top. The result is an unstoppable blend of pace, determination and creativity that cuts through opposition defences with devastating efficiency. Through exclusive testimonies from friends, families, managers and teammates, acclaimed football writers Luca Caioli and Cyril Collot document the trio's individual journeys and examine the phenomenal success of France's footballing superstars, including their success at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
