When Paul Pogba left Manchester United for Juventus, many called it a blunder on the part of the Red Devils for letting him go. Although Sir Alex Ferguson maintains that he disrespected the club, the simple fact is that he left due to a lack of first-team opportunities. And in the two years since his departure, the Frenchman has developed into one of the best mid fielders in Europe and is once again on the radars of Manchester United.
Although it would take a lot of money to lure him away from Juventus, here are three reasons why the Red Devils should do whatever it takes to bring the 21-year-old Frenchman back to Old Trafford.
1. He is exactly what they need
One of the reasons why Louis Van Gaal is after Kevin Strootman even though he is only just coming back from injury, is because of his dynamism. The Dutchman has preferred a 4-3-3 throughout his career and for that he needs a dynamic box-to-box midfielder who can both defend and attack.
In Pogba, he has exactly that. What makes Pogba so special is his ability to both help out in defense and in attack, without comprising on either. Whether it is going forward and scoring goals or staying back in a more defensive role and creating chances for his team mates, Pogba has shown that he has the tactical intelligence to adjust to both roles, sometimes even during the course of a single game. Although he would be more expensive than Strootman, if the club want to secure the long-term future of their central midfield, then bringing back their prodigal son from Italy is the best option to do so.
