Forget Pogba – Man Utd’s glory days would be restored if they sign any of these 3 top-class stars instead

Man Utd Opinion: Three players Man Utd must target as a replacement for Paul Pogba

Manchester United are making a huge impact in the current transfer window, as they have already added young talents like Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James to the squad.

On the receiving end, Ander Herrerra, United’s long-serving midfielder sought an exit to PSG while Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford remains up in the air.

The French World Cup star earlier stated his desire to leave United, thereby putting Juventus and Real Madrid on red alert.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to plan for Pogba’s departure, even though the task of filling his shoes appears quite difficult.

Nonetheless, the Norwegian manager can seek out the services of a few players, who could help him overcome the absence of the 26-year-old.

Donny van de Beek

The Dutch midfielder is being chased by some of Europe’s elites which include the Red Devils. Quickly emerging as one of the hottest talents that Ajax brought into the spotlight last season, Van de Beek is capable of working wonders for United.

The 22-year-old garnered 17 goals and 13 assists across all competitions and played a pivotal role behind the Amsterdam outfit’s fairytale run in Champions League.

Van de Beek’s playing style is similar to Pogba’s, as both players love to dribble the ball and don’t shy away from being intense in the attacking third.

The Dutch prodigy averaged 1.5 shots per game and 1.2 key passes last season with an average pass success percentage of 89. 

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Lazio

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is no more a new face to the Old Trafford faithful. However, the Reds Devils have resumed their interests in the Lazio man (h/t The Independent), who had a good season in the Serie A.

The 24-year-old racked up 7 goals and three assists in all competitions, thus establishing himself as one of the strongest performers.

Savic is not the quickest on the pitch but his ability to partake in both the defence and the attack, while being richly experienced at the top level, makes him a good addition for United.

Bruno Fernandes

The Portugues starlet has been heavily linked with a move to United due to his stupendous season with Sporting Lisbon.

The 24-year-old racked up 32 goals and 18 assists – a jaw-dropping stat for a player credited as a central midfielder. Furthermore, he ended up being the second-highest goal-scorer in Portuguese top-flight.

Fernandes’ versatility is the reason behind such numbers, as he can play high up the pitch and as a second striker.

With the transfer saga between the Portuguese international and the Red Devils showing no signs of slowing down, Fernandes would be a great addition to Solskjaer’s squad.
