Jose Mourinho will take charge of Manchester United this summer, after Louis Van Gaal was sacked hours after winning the FA Cup last month. Mourinho knows that this will be the toughest job of his career, he is not going to inherit a team filled with superstars but a team low on confidence, with their pride dented. His task will be to restore United’s place amongst the elites of Europe, Success in the domestic campaign is a must but far more important is the qualification to the Champions League. It’s going to be the tightest campaign ever with Pep Guardiola at City and Conte at Chelsea joining the likes of Arsene Wenger, Mourinho and Klopp in England.
Since the day of his appointment, Mourinho has been working with United management to get new players to Old Trafford, who can improve the quality of the squad. One player, who will be on every manager’s wish list, is Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. Having left United four years ago, the French midfielder is a bit hesitant to rejoin a club where he was shown the door even though his talent warranted more chances with the first team. In the four years that have passed since Paul Pogba was allowed to Leave Manchester United on a free transfer, the French midfielder has developed into one of the superstars of the world game.
In Turin, Pogba has won four successive Serie A titles and reached the final of the Champions League since moved from England to Italy. He quickly demonstrated how his unique blend of supreme athleticism and individual skills make him one of the most valuable players in the game. The 23 year old midfielder has been tipped to leave Juventus this summer but few teams are willing to cough up the money the Italian club want for his services. However reports are emerging this week, his agent Mino Raiola, is in talks with the Old Trafford club about taking the Frenchman back to Manchester.
Pogba is capable of dominating games with his sleek passing and ability to glide past players at will, marauding from box to box to offer a last-ditch tackle as well as a handy few goals Pogba would add a lot of steal into a United team, Which looked lackluster for most parts of last season.. With United having been so weak in midfield since Giggs and Scholes left, Pogba would be a fantastic addition in sporting terms, and bearing in mind he’s only 23 years old, he has the potential to be the Next United hero for many years to come. His development over the last few years won’t only make him a regular starter but the centre of Jose Mourinho’s team should he decide to join.
With no Champions League next season, United will have to rely on Mourinho’s charisma and pulling power to lure players to Old Trafford. If he can get his team firing from the start, there is no doubt that United will be back among the big boys soon.
