Spotted in UAE: Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba visit Salt Bae's Dubai restaurant

As the weather gets cooler, plenty of celebrities are flying in for a sunny stopover or for a holiday. Here is who was spotted in the desert this week (plus, Ryan Reynolds is now in Abu Dhabi shooting 6 Underground).

Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba

The football superstars - not playing during the international break - were spotted dining together at the Nusret-Et Dubai restaurant. The duo also got to enjoy an up close and personal meat cutting session from owner Nusret Gökçe before he fed them piece of meat directly from his knife.
