Since the retirement of Paul Scholes, Manchester United have failed to replace the legendary midfielder. The Red Devils had a ready-made replacement in the form of Paul Pogba, however, Alex Ferguson let him leave and preferred Tom Cleverley instead.
United have been looking to re-sign the Les Bleus midfielder for quite some time and it will not come as any surprise if Pogba does end up returning to Old Trafford this summer.
According to renowned La Liga journalist Guillem Balague (AS), Manchester United are currently leading the race to sign the 23-year-old central midfielder and Real Madrid must step up big time if they are to secure Pogba’s signature.
As per the provided AS link, United have agreed terms (in principle) over a contract that will make Pogba earn 13.5 million Euros annually. Moreover, the British giants are ready to splash a huge fee of 120 million Euros as well to seal their fourth vital signing of the summer.
Mourinho has already secured the signings of Bailly, Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan to improve Man United’s defense and attack. The Juventus star is one of the best midfielders in the world and will largely amplify the quality of United’s midfield.
