Manchester United is England’s most successful club and the best of players from around the world have showcaswd their talents at Old Trafford. Players like Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney have dazzled fans with their breathtaking displays. All these players are belong to a different league of players and stand out from the rest of the squad. Every club has a few players whose names are associated with the club for eternity. In the last few seasons,
Manchester United haven’t found a player who can singlehandedly take them to glory. Wayne Rooney, once considered as one of the best in the world is not in the best of forms. Other than him, United do not have a world class player who has the ability of single-handedly winning matches. But that void will soon be filled as United close in on the big-money signing of Paul Pogba.
Pogba is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world at the moment. The 24-year-old French starlet is a powerhouse and he can singlehandedly control the midfield. Surprisingly, Pogba was once a Red Devil but he was shown the exit door by Alex Ferguson in 2012 for a very small fee. Pogba had his problems at United then and a move away has surely helped him. Since then, Paul Pogba has won 4 consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus and he has transformed into one of the best midfielders in the world. Mourinho and United were desperate to land a deal for the Frenchman throughout the summer and now maybe their desperation will end. Pogba is still far from a finished article but he is surely worth the 100 million pounds that United are about to pay. Former Arsenal and French legend Thiery Henry once said that Pogba has got what it takes to become one of the best in history. If the Pogba deal goes through, United are getting a lot more than just a new midfielder. First of all, Pogba is a long term solution for United’s midfield problems. Unlike Zlatan Ibrahimvoic, who is a quick fox for Mourinho, Pogba would be there to stay at Old Trafford for years to come.
Manchester United have had 3 average seasons on the trot now and their fans worldwide are craving for trophies. United have not had a star face to represent the club for some time now and people too, buy jerseys of only the “big” players. In Paul Pogba, United are getting a very big name and he is very popular. He was recently voted second in SportsPro’s list of the most marketable sports stars in the world. United’s shirt sales and advertisement deals will skyrocket. United are getting a big project which they can mould and shape the way they want. Pogba is guaranteed to bring huge success for United in the future, on and off the pitch. Pogba will become United’s face for their pre-season tours and his popularity will help United increase their already massive global approach to a great extent.
Paying 100 million pounds for Pogba is not at all inconceivable considering the impact he will have at Old Trafford. Sir Alex made a big mistake by letting him go in 2012 but Mourinho has a chance of rectifying it. Pogba’s value could almost double in the coming years and United will have a huge asset in their squad, one that can be considered invaluable. Surely Paul Pogba is more marketable than the current United stars.
