Good morning ED002, I know the whole Pogba saga has been done to death and the two main destinations for him seem to be Juventus or Real Madrid. however i was wondering if PSG have shown any interest in him? there's a lot of talk about neymar and mbappe both going in the summer, could that leave a huge superstar hole that they will look to fill?

{Ed002's Note - Pogba is not a forward like Mbappe or Neymar - why would they want to replace them with Pogba?}

Agree1 Disagree0

Sorry I didn't mean a like for like replacement, I just meant in terms of star power. Losing both those would be a massive blow commercially is basically what I'm getting at. Pogba is a global figure and as well as being good on the pitch he's also very marketable.

{Ed002's Note - No, it doesn't work like that.}

Except Tim, Pogba is not very good on the pitch. He just thinks he is.

04 Mar 2020 14:59:15
If their looking for a jackass who thinks he's the worlds greatest social media player, sorry, footballer. Then Pogba might be able to step into Neymar's shoes. They are both equally deluded on their ability, despite them both being potentially the best players of their generation. Neither seem to have the focus or desire to actualise that ability on the pitch.

true MancMan, ed002 where do you envisage pogba will end up? i have a funny feeling it might be juventus, if their wage bill can handle it.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Juventus seems likely as Real Madrid are heading in another direction. Else he will run his contract down.}

I would be more than happy to take a deal with Juventus that saw Pogba head to Turin and Rabiot head to United with a little cash heading our way. Then if recent rumours are to be believed (highly unlikely in my opinion) we could blow the rest of our budget on Sancho and Kane. Then have a midfield of Bruno, Rabiot and McTominay, with a front line of Sancho, Kane and Rashford. That would look pretty good heading into next season.

thanks ed002, enjoy the rest of your week.

{Ed002's Note - And you Tim.}

Surley a loan move would be better than allowing him to run his contract down to at least save most of the wages.
Im sure a deal can be done on a permanent move if all sides are sensible.

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen - if the amateurs are going to play up then he will run it down.}

04 Mar 2020 16:32:33
Ed002 if its a case of him doing that if a sensible offer doesn't come in. If juve don't want to pay what united consider a fair price then its his prerogative to see out his contract as it would be United's to not play him.
Its a high risk and potentially costly strategy for both parties. I really hope that common sense prevails and we allow him to leave and recoup most of the money spent so we can reinvest.

{Ed002's Note - It is about the amateurs - nothing else.}
