The Manchester United fans who can regularly be found here in the Transfer Tavern have been relishing the prospect of seeing Paul Pogba back in a Manchester United shirt, with the club hopeful of completing a deal before the season starts in August.
The French midfielder is being lined-up for a staggering £106 million world record deal by the Red Devils and following a below-par Euro 2016, eyebrows have been raised over the staggering price.
Our landlord has spotted an article in The Mirror which claims that former France midfielder Emmanuel Petit has launched a scathing attack on the current Juventus lynchpin stating that £106 million would be a ‘waste of money.’
The comments come on the back of an underwhelming European Championships where France were beaten by Portugal and the United fans in the Tavern, are concerned that a former World Cup winner has made such a claim.
One of the Red Devils faithful is sat in the beer garden whilst the sun is shining and he thinks that re-signing Pogba after choosing to let him go for nothing in 2012, would represent a poor piece of business.
He thinks the club would be better served spending less money on a more established central midfielder, who will contribute more to the club’s games.
Manchester United fans, would Pogba be a waste of money? Is £106 million be too much to spend on one player?
