    De Gea seems certain to leave for PSG. Not really a shock that one though.

    Hopefully Maguire for £80-90m will be the Talisman Utd need.

    Can hardly blame him - world cup winner, world class talent having to put up with that dreadful squad and manager. He doesn't want to waste the best years of his life playing Europa League football. I bet he was made all sorts of promises to get him back from Juventus

    I like the look of Daniel James to be fair.

    World class talent is stretching imo. Big name unfulfilled potential.

    I'd say he's definitely world class, RM want him, Juve want him back, world cup winning starter for France. He's one of the best players in the league. He's had a very inconsistent season, I think he struggles to perform when playing with clowns and was severely lacking motivation

    He's a name , good marketing and good shirt sales . Performance wise he wouldn't make a best of EPL team never mind the world .

    lol. He wouldn't get in any of the EPL teams that actually won a trophy and I'm not sure he'd get in the Spurs team either . I'm not even sure that Sarri would have him at Juventus.

    He’s good, very good in fact in either set-up: such as those for Juve (with a ball player behind him, the great Pirlo, and him driving at teams and banging goals in). Or when he does as he’s fucking told and holds position (as he does for Deschamps). Keano was right when he said about him ‘walking around the pitch, in a dreamworld thinking he’s the best’

    Do you really think Paul Pogba wouldn't get into the Chelsea team to partner N'Golo Kante in midfield? Good enough for the world champions but not the Europa League winners? Good enough for Real Madrid (the same Madrid who decided Kovacic isn't good enough but who managed to start in midfield for Chelsea) but not good enough for the distant third best in the EPL?

    There is a reason elite clubs are queuing up to spend 9 figure sums on him, they haven't all just lost their minds

    Nope wouldn't get into Chelsea's team or Liverpools or Man City. As for world champions we had two in the French team. There's the fantasy of Pogba and the reality of Pogba the reality is that he's overrated and I wouldn't go by Real Madrids very hit and miss transfer policy either. Utd supporters are very hit and miss with him as well.

    I'm not sure he'd even get into a David Moyes team now.

    Pogba has not been world class for United. Far from it. There's been moments, the odd game here and there, where he's looked like he could be. But that's it.

    Having said all that, a former Serie A/UCL player who I used to know said he was the best player he'd played against (at youth level).

  29. Notwithstanding the merits of Pogbas ability, his weakest point is his attitude. When he wants to play he can destroy anyone, but when he doesn't he can divide a team and disrupt the dressing room.

    Pogba needs a strong manager to get the best out of him.

    Who would keep him out of the Chelsea team? Ross Barkley? Obviously everyone's steadfast in their opinions of him being a bit shit, I blame those twats Souness and Keane for a lot of if. I guess we'll see how he gets on when he does move.

    Fwiw it's not *just* RM who are after him but Juve too, PSG would certainly be interested if they hadn't already fucked their FFP figures
