Why Manchester United must accept Real Madrid’s offer for Paul Pogba
The report claims that Los Blancos misfits James Rodriguez and Mariano Dias are the two players that Florentino Perez is ready to offer United along with the cash.
The Frenchman featured only 5 times in the Premier League this season before an ankle injury put him out of action for over two months.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail claims that Pogba is pushing for a move to Real Madrid. He wants to be at the Bernabeu as early as January. From this, it is clear that the World Cup winner has set his sights to move away from Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has looked to use Pogba at Man United but with the option of two more players in James and Mariano, the Norwegian must consider it for the good of the team.
James Rodriguez has been an outcast at Real Madrid for a long time under Zinedine Zidane. He did well in his two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich and since his return, has found it difficult to gain game time in Madrid.
The Colombian midfielder has the ability to play on the flanks too and he would be incredible for United. At the moment, United are in dire need of a creative player and Rodriguez can fit in perfectly as their creative hub.
His goalscoring prowess has also been notable – he claimed the World Cup Golden Boot in Brazil. Solskjaer can deploy Rodriguez as an attacking midfielder to create scoring opportunities for the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial up front.
Another of Real Madrid’s outcast, Mariano Diaz has not played a single minute in La Liga this season. His performances with Lyon made him a star in France and his return to Real Madrid has only seen his downfall.
The 26-year-old scored 21 times for the French outfit in 48 appearances. He has a knack for scoring goals of the highest quality. His performances can never be doubted and has a lot to offer if given enough game time.
At United, Diaz could be a prolific striker to partner Rashford. Given his prowess, he would be capable of banging in the extra goals to aid the youngster, who is presently their top scorer. Solskjaer would also have the option to shuffle the two frontmen to ensure their fitness for a full season.
- Why Manchester United must revive their interest in Neymar
- Why Nicolo Zaniolo could be a brilliant addition to Manchester United
- Why Ezequiel Barco would be a smart long-term investment for Man United
Therefore, if Real Madrid are knocking the doors for Paul Pogba, Manchester United and Solskjaer would surely benefit from the deal.
Two players in the place of Pogba would guarantee an impact on United’s not-so-prolific attacking ranks.
