The Man Utd midfield has the potential to be one of the best in the Premier League. In Paul Pogba, Jose Mourinho has one of Europe’s most exciting and creative talents, and his form over the last few weeks has proven that he has the potential to be the lynchpin of this team for years to come. Likewise, Nemanja Matic is one of Europe’s best defensive midfielders – having provided incredible displays for both Chelsea and Man Utd in recent years.
However, despite the quality that both players possess, it’s clear that Man Utd are missing something in the midfield. That extra spark to turn it from a solid midfield – to a truly great midfield.
One player that could be just the ticket is Brazilian ace Jorginho.
Currently playing for Napoli, Jorginho is a combative, dedicated and powerful midfielder that has dominated in Italy this season. At 26-years-old, he has truly come of age this term, and that has been reflected by the way in which Napoli have dominated games this season.
With Matic providing the defence and Pogba providing the attack, Jorginho would, in many ways, be the perfect supplement to both players. He’s comfortable with the defensive side of the game, given that he’s more than able to make a challenge and break up play, but he’s also a very solid runner and dribbler, making him a great choice going forward, too.
Able to link the defence and attack, he’d add another dimension to the Man Utd midfield – and not only would the position suit him, but it would also suit both Matic and Pogba, allowing each player to make the most of their respective qualities.
He wouldn’t be a cheap option, that much is certain, but he’d have quite the impact in the midfield.
