Ray Parlour: Paul Pogba’s £100m fee will be forgotten when Man United win the league

by Tanveer Arayan

Ray Parlour has urged Manchester United to break the world record transfer fee and pay Paul Pogba’s £100m price tag.

Man United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has allegedly begun negotiations with Juventus last week to try and bring the 23-year-old back to Old Trafford.

Real Madrid have also shown a big interest in the Frenchman’s services and could ruin Jose Mourinho’s plans of signing Pogba this summer.

Speaking about a deal, Parlour insists Pogba’s fee will quickly be forgotten if he can help deliver the Premier league title.

“He’s a tremendous player, there’s no doubt about that, and he will deliver,” he said.

“Yes, £100m is a lot of money but he will be a real asset in that midfield area. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a great signing, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a great signing. It is going to be a real battle next season for the Premier League.

“It will be intriguing to see who gets who before the end of the window but certainly Pogba will be a great signing.

“People will look at that price tag but if he can deliver on a regular basis and win them the title then eveyone will forget that £100m very quickly. He would be brilliant for Manchester United.”

Pogba would be an incredible signing for Man United should the club reach a deal with Juventus before Madrid can lure him to the Bernabeu.

Mourinho has signalled his intent to build a world-class squad capable of winning titles and Pogba could potentially join Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly at Old Trafford this summer.

The Frenchman would play a vital role on Mourinho’s side as the Portuguese boss aims to reclaim the Premier League crown with Man United.
