It is exciting times in the Premier League as some of the best managers in Europe will lead some of the biggest sides in Europe into one of the most competitive domestic leagues in Europe. It is a season that has caught the eye of many football fans across the world and even with over 3 weeks left for the start of the campaign, the teams are busy trying to add some quality in the transfer window to help them in their adventure next season.
One club, which seems to have grown in-fold in their strength is Manchester United. From assigning Jose Mourinho in place of Louis van Gaal to bringing in the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimović and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Red Devils have drastically improved their squad and are at the moment one of the strongest not only in England but also in Europe. However, the manager is still not done with his summer business as he is now desperate for the signature of French sensation Paul Pogba (a story that does not need a link to back it up).
The 23-year old has been a subject of transfer speculation claiming that the Red Devils are ready to splash up to £100m to bring him to the club this summer. The rumours have intensified by the day and United seem to be edging closer to a deal but with that amount of money, should United be able to go all the way next season and win the title? Will the £100m signing help Manchester United get there?
The club is set to play a front three of Anthony Martial, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Henrikh Mkhitaryan with Wayne Rooney expected to take the place of a number-10 just behind Zlatan. The likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin are expected to take one of the two places in a holding midfield role while Paul Pogba will walk straight into the other. The Frenchman will be given the license to roam all over the field and will be the chief link between the attack and defence of the squad next season.
Mourinho will want his player to stay compact and play as a team and Pogba is a master at doing so. He drops deep just enough to help his defenders but when in possession of the ball, he finds space and then the right pass to set his team on the attack from a deep role. When dominating the game, Pogba is an even bigger asset. He is an excellent finisher and will give United goals from the midfield, something they missed last season but more importantly he creates goals for the players around him. At United, he will have players in front of him who will finish off half-chances also which will help him improve as a player as well.
With Pogba in the team, United have a better balance in the squad and will have the spark in the midfield that will help them in creating and scoring goals. United need that exuberance in their team and have the best manager who can use it in the right way. The manager will surely have his plans for each and every player and surely with Pogba in the plans, United won’t be too far away from a Premier League title.
