Man United Transfers
Paul Pogba could still stay at Manchester United
Manchester United youngster Paul Pogba was named amongst the substitues for the red devils home victory against West Bromich Albion on Sunday, sparking rumours that the talented young Frenchman United signed from Le Havre in 2009 could still have a future at Old Trafford.
Following recent reports linking Pogba with a move to Italian giants Juventus, it is now rumoured that Pogba could put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with United, worth in the region of £20,000 per week. United are well know for developing youth talent and allowing younger players a chance to break into the senior squad. Having lost Ravel Morrison to West Ham, apparently due to his lack of first team opportunities, United are keen to persuade Pogba to stay on at the club rather than seeing him move elsewhere for first team football.
Following Pogba’s latest cameo appearence for United in their 2-0 win over West Brom, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said:
‘The boy is still trying to make his mind up but he knows where he should be.’
With United’s ability to integrate younger players into the senior squad, Pogba should perhaps look at the success stories of recent graduates Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley who are both examples that younger players can hold down places in United’s starting eleven, when fit. If Pogba’s good enough, Sir Alex will certainly give him more chances very soon.
