Though he was largely anonymous during yesterday’s EURO 2016 final, the Transfer Tavern has been rife with debates surrounding the potential return of Paul Pobga this summer.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, the marauding Frenchman has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in an eye-wateringly expensive deal.
Such is the blockbuster nature of the deal, a number of punters in this evening have been doubting a switch of this magnitude could truly come off.
However, according to Marca (via Sport Witness), Red Devils chief Jose Mourinho is eager to see a deal with Juventus agreed this week, as he looks to wrap up his transfer dealings early.
With the European Championships now done and dusted, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is understood to be keen on applying the finishing touches to his squad early on in the window.
Real Madrid are said to have dropped their interest in the 23-year old after baulking at the seismic price tag, clearing the way for United to pounce.
