After weeks of rumours, Paul Pogba finally makes his long-awaited return to Manchester United this summer after spending 4 years at Juventus. With a record-breaking fee of £89 million, of course all the Red Devils out there have high expectations from the midfielders return to Old Trafford.
There is no denying his quality! After helping Manchester United win the FA Youth Cup in 2011, he was considered one of the brightest talents the club had. Now with more experience in international football, room for improvement, and the best years of his career still ahead of him, here are 3 things United fans can expect from Paul Pogba this season.
1. A stronger midfield
Ever since the retirement of Paul Scholes, United has truly lacked a real midfield star. This gives Pogba the perfect opportunity to fit in and work his magic. He brings with him a whole new quality on the field with the way he passes and his eye for spectacular goals.
All of the best teams in the world have a strong midfield presence – Steven Gerrard for Liverpool, and Yaya Toure for Manchester City. Fans can now look forward to Paul Pogba bringing back an exception midfield presence to Old Trafford.
2. More Goals
Red Devils can surely expect to see entertaining football with some brilliant goals from Pogba! While he can’t be expected to score the way Ronaldo or Messi score because of his playing style and the position he plays in, his goal scoring abilities are exceptional and still pose a threat to opponent goalkeepers. So keep your eyes open for some world class football this season!
As the Premier League gets increasingly fast paced, Manchester United are in need for a more athletic, and powerful team. Apart from being such a great footballer, Pogba is also a brilliant athlete which gives him to chance to run around the field for a full 90 minutes better than Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger could in the last season. Being all over the place gives him the chance to score a lot more and also makes him more involved in the game. Looks like Rooney is finally going to have some backing up this season!
It has been an interesting transfer window this year with a lot of changes to the team and a new manager. But all you Red Devils out there stay tuned because Pogba’s back! #Pogback
