The Daily Mail have both Manchester United and Chelsea fans shaking their heads here in the Football Transfer Tavern after hearing that one of their top targets has just penned a new deal at Juventus.
The player in question is of course Paul Pogba who has been linked with a return to United and with Chelsea also keen on the midfielder, we thought he could well be playing on our shores at some point.
However it seems that at least for the foreseeable future, that will not be the case.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and a burger landlord special, United and Louis van Gaal certainly could do with a player like Pogba slightly more than Mourinho and Chelsea who have a fair few stars in that position already.
That said, Serie A champions Juventus are no mugs and were well aware that a new contract with trebled wages for Pogba would probably be enough to keep him in Turin for now – and that has turned out to be the case.
Manchester United fans. Paul Pogba would have been a great signing but who should van Gaal turn to now? Let us know your thoughts below.
