Man Utd fans’ educated response to Paul Pogba and Pochettino transfer news

Manchester United star Paul Pogba is reportedly a target for Paris Saint-Germain this summer, but Red Devils fans don’t seem to mind.

PSG’s new manager Mauricio Pochettino has apparently made the central midfielder his top target as he plots a revamp of his new squad.

Angel Di Maria is set to leave for Juventus at the end of his contract, while Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid.

And Pochettino is likely to be handed a significant war chest to improve his squad, with Pogba a likely target due to his desire to leave United.

But Red Devils fans don’t seem to mind about the prospect of their record signing departing the club.

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has a poor relationship with the club and has frequently claimed he wants to engineer a move away for his client.

And it seems United fans are ready to say goodbye to the 2018 World Cup winner.

Taking to social media, United fans urged the club’s board to use the money to go after a new defensive midfielder in the summer.

One posted: “Ideally we should sign someone who has good defensive skills, is composed on the ball, and can make incisive or long passes. Someone that can give us more tactical flexibility by allowing us to play a single pivot with VDB and Bruno acting as 8s.

“Should have made more of a concerted effort to sign Thiago in the summer but that boat has sailed.”

Another commented: “Cool. We should use that money to buy an actual DM.”

One posted: “Fantastic news! We all know Paul isn’t staying for the long term. PSG is a rich club. Pay up! Lets get Grealish and a younger DM and never look back.”

“30mil + Idrissa [Gueye] Guys? He seems like a good DM,” another wrote.
