Arguably Sir Alex Ferguson’s biggest mistake was not someone he bought, but someone he let go of. After battling ever so hard, to get his hands on the prodigiously gifted Paul Pogba, the Scot let him go in 2012. Ever since his departure the Frenchman has developed into one of the finest central midfielders in Europe and has become a mainstay in midfield for both club and country.
With Manchester United reportedly interest in snapping up the services of the 21-year-old yet again, despite his value skyrocketing to £60m, here are three reasons why Pogba would be perfect for the Red Devils.
He is what they need right now
The fact that Ferguson overlooked a basic flaw in the squad through the last few years of his reign became very apparent last season. The defending champions were unable to cope up with the demands of challenging on both domestic and European front. Without Ferguson, the glue that held an average side together, a threadbare midfield was found out last time around and it is high time the Red Devils signed a world class central midfielder.
Pogba might be just that player. Should United get the man who got away, it might just solve most of their problems. Not only would they have a top class central midfielder, but also a player with charisma, a natural-born leader who would improve the entire midfield and make the side a much more dynamic outfit.
