International football legends Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba were spotted hanging out with Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, at his steak house in Dubai.

Both stars are currently vacationing in the emirate and met at the popular dining spot earlier this week. 

Videos and images of their visit flooded social media over the weekend and have since gone viral.

Salt Bae was pretty excited to welcome the footballers

The celebrity chef instagrammed most of the visit, sharing several videos and images of him hosting the footballers with his 17.2 million followers on the platform

In one of the posts, Gökçe emotionally revealed that meeting Messi reminded him of a 2007 trip he made to Argentina during which he improved his skills as a chef. 

Pogba and Messi were quite thrilled, too

Fans had a meltdown over all the viral posts

Everyone shared this fan-shot video

Some people envied Salt Bae ... to say the least

"So they took a photo with him because of a sprinkle of salt?"

"Squad goals"

Both stars seem to be making the most of their time in the emirate and have met yet again during their stay.
