3 Reasons Why Manchester United Desperately Need This Signing

published :

After two failed appointments in the last 3 years, Jose Mourinho will take charge of Manchester United this summer. He has already brought 3 quality signings to Old Trafford and that too without the lure of Champions League, there are still some gaps that need to be filled before his squad is ready to mount a proper title challenge next year. The last two years under Louis Van Gaal has diminished the attacking flare that United had under Sir Alex Fergusan. Mourinho will be tasked with restoring United’s lost pride. He will have to utilise this summer to get his players ready and firing otherwise the fans could quickly turn on him.

According to recent rumours in the media, United are believed to be pursuing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. The interesting to not here is that Pogba was allowed to leave United few years back as the club felt he was surplus to requirements. However the French national has since then gone on to become a world class midfielder. The Old Lady took a chance on a young unproven player and have worked wonders on him. The best part for Juve is that they spend nothing to get him and can make a huge profit. Now he can command a transfer fee of at least £70 million and could become the most expensive player ever.

Here are 3 reasons that United should sign Pogba.

Star Player

When Paul Pogba left United in 2012, he had only made 7 appearances for the club as a substitute. Sir Alex Ferguson quickly lost his faith in him and allowed him to leave Old Trafford. Juventus saw the quality in the youngster and quickly signed him. Since he move to Juventus, the French international has transformed into one the hottest prospects in the world right now. He has not only won four consecutive on four successive Serie A titles but was also selected in the FIFA FIFPro World XI and UEFA Team of the Year in 2015. He is star player any team would love to have and at United he will get the perfect stage to display his abilities.

Quality And Versatility

One thing which hurt United the most last season was their uncertainty in the midfield. LVG tried many different combinations and even played players out of their natural positions but nothing seemed to work. He will allow Mourinho to push Rooney forward, something the Portuguese has been talking about since the beginning. Pogba is an excellent defensive midfielder with impressive defensive stats but he is also very much capable of playing in an attacking role from where he loves running at defenders. He will give that energy in the central of the park that United missed last season.


One cannot deny that in modern day football, marketability of a player is very important when it comes to Clubs spending millions on their services. Pogba has that look, style and popularity off the field that makes him a very valuable asset for a team in financial terms. It will also be a step in restoring United’s lost pride as one of the most powerful clubs in the world.
