It never rains but it pours for Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern and Metro have not exactly helped matters.
The publication has noted that one of their former players, Paul Pogba, who has of course become one of the greatest players in Europe for his age group now, has rejected the chance to return to the club in a £35 million move.
According to our punters, that is not exactly a shock, with the form of United and their manager struggling, and it seems that although the player will be leaving Juventus, there are a couple of other clubs who are in line to land his signature.
Real Madrid are the favourites to land the French midfielder, and as our punters claim, it would be hard pressed for anyone to turn down an approach from the Spanish giants.
United meanwhile are plunging further and further into crisis, and as our punters note we would not exactly be rushing to join the club either.
United now look like missing out on a top four spot, and we don’t think the likes of Pogba would want to spend a season, if not more at a club who are playing in the Europa League – if they even manage to quality for that!
Manchester United fans. If Pogba is unattainable this summer, who should the club realistically be looking to land instead? Let us know your thoughts below.
