Despite his below standard performance at the recently concluded European championship on home soil, Paul Pogba remains heavily linked with a move to Jose Mourinho tutored Manchester United. Well, that’s not a surprise. Pogba is simply one of best midfielders in the world and he is not to be judged by six games.
Manchester United seem to be desperate to sign the France international midfielder who has shone like million stars since joining Serie A champions Juventus from Manchester United on a free transfer. Signing Pogba won’t only boost United’s chances of winning the league and making a return to European football, it will also boost the club commercially.
Reports indicate that a 5 year personal agreement has been agreed reached between the Red Devils and Paul Pogba. The young midfielder, will reportedly earn €13 million yearly and €65 million for the entire duration as reported by Marca.
The midfield ace made 49 appearances for Juventus last campaign, and contributed directly to not less than 26 goals, including 10 goals and 16 assists. The youngster has overall played 178 games for the Turin giant while helping them to win eight major titles.
Marca reported days ago that Manchester United are set to re-sign the French international for about 120 million euros and the midfield ace has informed his close associates he wants to join Manchester United.
Only time will tell if the deal will materialize in the coming days. But if it does, Manchester United should be praised for accepting they made a mistake by letting Pogba go in the first place. By bringing him back, it means the club has accepted the error of their initial judgment which takes maturity.
It was certainly a mistake letting him leave for free but it is one thing to make a mistake, it is another thing to accept a mistake was made and correct it. Pogba is worth every penny, especially in a market that is so massively inflated, he will make Manchester United a force to be reckoned with once again and his image rights will surely bring United good fortune off the field of play.
