Manchester United Tipped to Make Shock Move With Paul Pogba and Jack Grealish
Interest in Paul Pogba
There has been much interest in Paul Pogba since he rejoined the Red Devils in 2016 for a then world-record £89 million, despite the Frenchman having failed to have the desired impact at Old Trafford.
He has struggled with injury since his move, and although he looked to have finally found some form last season, a recurring ankle injury has kept him away from the action this campaign.
There is no doubt that Pogba is an extremely talented player, though, and many of Europe’s top clubs have been looking into him.
Real Madrid and former side Juventus have been at the forefront of this, and they looked set to battle for him, with a price in the region of £100 million, this summer, before the Coronavirus hit football.
With financial uncertainties having come about due to COVID-19, nobody knows how much money they will have in the transfer window, but the two sides would like to sign United’s wantaway Frenchman.
United’s Interest in Grealish
Although United are now reconsidering their interest in Jack Grealish, with the Englishman’s unreliable attitude off the pitch, they are still looking into him. Should he join in the summer, he would add yet more quality to United’s attack and would be an exceptional signing.
Manchester United Tipped to Make Shock Move Says Andy Gray
The former striker believes that United should cash in on Pogba while they still can, saying: “We don’t know if football is ever going to be the same again and whether it’ll affect player values and salaries. We’re entering a world of unknowns.
“But when the dust settles, if I could sell Pogba for £100m and bring in Grealish for £70m I would do it in a heartbeat. It’s a no brainer.
“United still might be able to get their money back on Pogba.
“We know his value commercially and on social media with his millions of followers. That’s important to football clubs these days and it gives him an added kudos.
“But fans aren’t really bothered about all that. They just want him to contribute on the football pitch.
“He’s pretty much failed at United. Is it his own fault or just bad luck with injuries? I think it’s probably a combination of the two.
Although Jadon Sancho should be the primary transfer target at Old Trafford, Grealish would still be a good addition, and Andy Gray believes that they should sell Pogba to facilitate that.
