Kylian Mbappe has reportedly been in contact with Paul Pogba and his brother Mathias, following claims the Juventus midfielder used a witch doctor to cast a spell on his international team-mate.

According to RTL, the Paris Saint-Germain superstar called the Pogba brothers on Thursday to ascertain as to why he has been name-checked in the scandal.

It's said that Mbappe phoned them in order to gain the perspective of both brothers, to get a better understanding of the situation. 

Mbappe and Pogba are well aware the affair is explosive and harmful for the French team just over two months away from the World Cup, hence the importance of discussing the subject. 

As previously reported, Mathias published a bizarre video online on Saturday night - in four languages (French, Italian, English and Spanish) - promising 'great revelations' about the Juventus star.

A statement signed by Paul Pogba's lawyers, his mother Yeo Moriba and current agent Rafaela Pimenta said that the videos 'are unfortunately no surprise' and were in addition to other 'threats and extortion attempts'. 

One such threat, Pogba reportedly told investigators, was to claim that he had asked a witch doctor to cast a spell on Paris Saint-Germain superstar and French team-mate Kylian Mbappe - something which Pogba denies doing.

Mathias' outburst was followed by the former Manchester United star reportedly telling French authorities that he was held hostage by a gang armed with assault rifles in an attempted blackmail plot.

Pogba reportedly paid £85,000 (pictured left) to his extortionists who were demanding £11m after they dragged him to a Paris apartment in March and threatened him with assault rifles in part of an alleged plot to blackmail him. This came after Pogba's brother - Mathias Pogba - said he would share information on his brother in a bizarre video on Twitter (right)

It's said the gang demanded £11million from the World Cup winning midfielder, with the men wanting money for 'protection services' stretching back 13 years, including the time he spent in Manchester. 

Pogba claims two armed men said they 'protected him discreetly' during a period that spanned more than a decade, including during two spells at Manchester United, the last of which ended earlier this year.

Former Crewe and Wrexham player Mathias, 32, hit out at his brother for his 'lies' before claiming to have 'explosive information' about Mbappe. 

He said: 'I will tell you very important things about him and there will be elements and many testimonies to confirm my words.

'Everything could be explosive and make a lot of noise.'

But on Sunday Mathias attempted to reach out to the superstar - suggesting he had Mbappe's best interests in mind.

The claims come just months before France are set to defend the World Cup they won in 2018

He tweeted: 'Kylian, now do you understand? I have nothing negative against you, my words are for your good, everything is true and proven, the marabou is known!

'Sorry to this brother, a so called muslim deep in witchcraft, it's never good to have a hypocrite and a traitor near you!'

Judicial sources in Paris confirmed on Sunday that an investigation for 'attempted extortion in an organised gang' has been opened. On Sunday night a source close to the case told the Franceinfo news outlet that Pogba's 'big brother and childhood friends' are all named as suspects.

Further details on Tuesday emerged and revealed that Pogba had reportedly paid £85,000 (€100,000) in a bid to 'save time' and 'satisfy the extortionists' but his attempts saw those plotting against him demand the £11m again. 

But on Sunday night, Mathias - who had spells in English football at Wrexham, Crewe and Crawley Town - denied the claims from his better-known sibling in a furious Twitter outburst.

He wrote: 'Paul, you really wanted to shut me up completely to lie and send me to prison, I suspected it now it's true, my version of the facts happens and unlike you.' 

 On Sunday night, a judicial source said: 'During various hearings, Paul Pogba was able to confide in investigators from the Central Office of Judicial Police Combating Organised Crime that he was trapped by childhood friends, and two hooded men armed with assault rifles.

Pogba said the gang wanted €13m (£11m) – and had been threatening him for four months.

Acts of intimidation were carried out in Manchester in April, and later around the Italian city of Turin, where Pogba currently plays for Juventus.

The gang is also said to have taken Pogba to flat in the Paris suburb of Lagny-sur-Marne, where Pogba grew up, at the end of March. There, the gang members accused Pogba of not helping them financially since he became a professional player.

During police interviews, Paul Pogba said he had always been close to his childhood friends and helped them out financially when he could.

But in January he kicked one out his house in Manchester after discovering that the unidentified man had used Pogba's credit card to steal €200,000 – the equivalent of £170,000.

With the ongoing drama, French football president Noel Le Graet, has given Paul Pogba his full backing.

As reported by French news outlet L'Equipe, Le Graet said: 'This case is in the hands of the police. An investigation is underway. At this point, I won't make any further comments other than to show my support for Paul Pogba.

'Paul is a man I hold in high esteem, he's highly appreciated by the entire Federation.

'He has always been exemplary for the France team for almost ten years after having shone in all of the youth teams. I hope to see him again very soon, on the pitch and in great shape.

Paul Pogba's lawyers, Yeo Moriba - who is also his mother - and Pimenta have since responded to Mathias's threats.

'Mathias Pogba's recent statements on social networks are unfortunately not a surprise,' they said. 'They are in addition to threats and organised extortion attempts against Paul Pogba.'

According to two sources close to the Pogba family contacted by AFP, large sums of money are being demanded from Paul Pogba if he wants to avoid the dissemination of the allegedly compromising videos.    

The Juventus midfielder was born and raised in Lagny-sur-Marne along with two brothers – Mathias and Florentin, both of whom also play football professionally. 

Both the midfielder and Kylian Mbappe are set to defend the World Cup they won together with France in 2018 at the upcoming tournament in Qatar.

He re-joined the Serie A giants on a free transfer after his Manchester United contract expired earlier this summer.

He first arrived at Old Trafford from Le Havre as a 16-year-old in 2009 before being allowed to leave United on a free transfer and join Juventus in 2012.
