Despite having reinforced his defensive position and the attacking position with the signing of players like Eric Bailly from Villareal, Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free from PSG and Mkhitaryan from Dortmund, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is eager to bolster his midfield department as well according to various reports.
Manchester United and manager Jose Mourinho are strongly interested in securing the signature of France international and Juventus midfieler Paul Pogba, and the former Chelsea boss wants the old Trafford club to complete the deal in due course.
You can understand why United could be interested in signing their former player. The Frenchman has ever since leaving United gone on to become one of the best players in the world. And with United desperate to make a come back to the pinnacle of English football, signing someone like Pogba will certainly give them the much needed boost, not only in the Premier league but as well as in Europe.
Signing Paul Pogba will not only make United a threat on the field of play but also off it. Pogba’s image right alone is enough to make any club want to make a move for him and it is not a surprise that Juventus have over the years held tight to their prized asset despite interest from clubs who are richer than the old lady.
According to Le10Sport, if Jose Mourinho is not able to get Pogba, then the Portugese manager is ready to sanction the transfer of another France midfielder, Moussa Sissoko.
As reported by Le10Sport, Newcastle values the 26-year-old star at €20 million for one of their their prized asset, but, reports by Sky indicate that the championship club have slapped a huge price tag of around $46 million on the France ace.
Sissoko directly contributed in 9 goals for the championship club Newcastle United last season but his club was still relegated from the Premier League to the second tier of English football.
