Manchester United leave Paul Pogba’s favourite shirt number free amid transfer talk

by Tanveer Arayan


Manchester United have announced their Premier League squad numbers for the 2016/17 season and have left the No. 6 shirt vacant.

Fans believe the Frenchman’s favourite shirt number has been left unclaimed suggesting he could be wearing it at Old Trafford next season.

He wore the No.6 at the start of his career at Juventus before he was awarded the iconic No.10 after proving his talent at the club.

New signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic had taken famous No.9 with Anthony Martial moving to the legendary No.11 once worn by George Best.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has flown to Miami to meet the French midfielder in the latest development of a rapidly evolving transfer saga with Man United.

MUTV certainly didn’t avoid the subject before the club’s Borussia Dortmund fixture and openly discussed the signing of Pogba.

He released a video of himself relaxing and playing basketball with Romelu Lukaku while transfer talks continue and it’ll be interesting if Mourinho can lure him to Old Trafford.

The Portuguese boss has been very vocal in his intent to sign his fourth fundamental player at Man United, who is believed to be Pogba and it doesn’t look like he’ll stop until we see him in a United shirt.
