Former England midfielder Danny Murphy believes Paul Pogba will bring back the old fear factor to Manchester United this summer.
Speculation surrounding his future at Juventus has been the biggest topic of the summer, however the club released an official statement on Sunday afternoon claiming he’d complete his Man United transfer after finalising his medical.
Man United fans were encouraged by the impressive performance by Jose Mourinho’s side in the Community Shield victory over Leicester City, but Pogba’s signing will really excite them.
Speaking about a deal, Murphy insists Pogba will add plenty of quality to Man United’s squad
“Buying the France and Juventus midfielder will mean far more than just adding another quality player to their squad,” he said.
“Along with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored the winner at Wembley on Sunday, Pogba is another superstar of the type you expect to find in the United team.
“That has not always been the case in the past couple of seasons but, with their summer signings and with Jose Mourinho in charge, United will soon have their old fear factor back.”
He left Man United four years ago on a free transfer after growing frustrated with Sir Alex Ferguson, but will come back at the heart of Mourinho’s exciting new United squad.
It’s an incredible signing for the club and has underlined Mourinho’s intent to win everything he possibly can during his time at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese boss has completed his signings early this summer and will want to have Pogba reunited with his team-mates before his deadline of the club’s first Premier League fixture against Bournemouth.
