Report: Man Utd want Pogba

Reports in the British Press this morning claim that Manchester United have been quoted £60m if they want to sign Paul Pogba.

The France international has become a lynchpin for the Bianconeri ever since his move from Old Trafford to Turin in 2012.

The young midfielder has grown exponentially under Antonio Conte and is now considered to be one of the best players in Europe.

As such, The Observer believe that the Premier League outfit are keen to re-sign the player they let go only two years’ ago.

The paper indicates that United deem £60m to be a reasonable amount for a player of Pogba’s age and ability, but are hesitant because of the 21-year-old’s brash attitude.

As a teenager, he was one of the few players to speak out against Sir Alex Ferguson, but the club do admit that they made mistake in letting him leave on a free.

New boss Louis Van Gaal is a fan of Pogba, but would also like to sign Kevin Strootman from Roma once he recovers from knee surgery.
