Man United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening are rather impressed by the plans to bring in one of the surprise performers from this seasons Euros, should the deal for Paul Pogba fall through.
However, should the deal not go through, Jose Mourinho has a contingency plan. According to reports from French outlet, Le 10 Sport, the Red Devils are lining up Moussa Sissoko as a backup for the Juventus midfielder.
With Newcastle having been relegated to the Championship, it is widely expected that the French international will be moving on this summer, with Rafa Benitez slapping a whopping £35m price tag on the midfielder, which has angered the midfielder’s agent.
