Manchester United are eyeing a sensational swoop for Paul Pogba after Jose Mourinho made the Juventus midfielder a key target as he looks to bring in three new signings this summer, according to the Times.
Mourinho was finally appointed as the new United boss last week but contrary to some reports, the Times believe the Portuguese coach is willing to work with the majority of the squad he’s inherited from Louis van Gaal.
Instead of making wholesale changes this summer, the newspaper claims Mourinho is planning to sign just three new players over the coming weeks with a centre-back, midfielder and striker on his wish-list.
Several names have been linked with a move to United recently but the Times suggest that Mourinho has identified Juventus star Paul Pogba as one of his prime targets with the Serie A champions reportedly willing to cash-in if the price is right.
Pogba left Old Trafford for Turin back in 2012 after failing to make the breakthrough under Sir Alex Ferguson and has developed in to one of the best all-round midfielders in world football over the past four years.
It remains to be seen whether he’d be prepared to move back to United but if the 23-year-old is open to the idea, I think the Red Devils should do all they can to land him as Pogba would be a sensational signing.
However, United are likely to face stiff competition if he is made available this summer as the Daily Star reported yesterday that Chelsea are also keen on signing the midfielder and have already held talks with his agent about a possible £80m move to Stamford Bridge.
Incoming Blues boss Antonio Conte is expected to reshape the Chelsea squad after a disastrous campaign and signing Pogba would certainly be a huge statement of intent from the deposed Premier League champions.
So it looks like two of England’s most powerful clubs are ready to battle-it-out over Pogba’s signature this summer and I’d personally love to see him come to these shores as I think he’d be a valuable asset to the Premier League.
