Man United should sign Coutinho, Mbappe boost handed to United and Pogba decision already made in Manchester United roundup….
Manchester United will make a decision on Paul Pogba’s future at the end of the season, if a call has not already been made, says Andy Cole.
Despite being one of the biggest players at Old Trafford, Pogba has once again been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons as fans have been constantly reading about his poor performances, and his desire to leave the club.
Comments from his outspoken agent, Mino Raiola, have also kept the rumour mill ticking over, with Pogba’s second spell in Manchester said to be “over”, and Cole admits he will be sad to see a proven performer go if a sale is to be sanctioned.
“I’m one of Paul Pogba’s biggest fans and I think he’s a fantastic player. I also think he gets a lot of unfair criticism,” Cole told The Target Men Podcast.
“Pogba left a winning Juventus team to return to Manchester United wanting to help the club return to its glory days. He wanted nothing more than to compete and win trophies at the club.
“Pogba has been back at Manchester United for four years and the club are probably no closer to winning the Premier League now than they were when he joined, so it’s a transfer that hasn’t worked out as either club or player would have hoped.
“I expect that decision [on his future] to be made this summer, if it hasn’t been already.”
Barcelona are winning to listen to offers for Manchester United target Philippe Coutinho, fresh reports have emerged from Spain.
Coutinho has been in the transfer headlines alot over the past 12 months as all indications suggested that he was done at Barcelona, that the Spaniards were keen to sell on in the summer transfer window
However, that did not happen as reports suggested that Ronaldo Koeman was willing to give the Brazilian a chance that he is able to play for a massive club like Barcelona, and so far this season, he has put in some very solid performances for the Spaniards.
However, according to reports on ARA, Barcelona are again willing to let Coutinho leave the club in the coming transfer window, with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly looking at a possible transfer deal.
Despite having some very exciting players in the squad, Solskjaer is lacking world class stars that have the ability to win games on their own, which is why they have been unable to win many games under the Spaniard this season
And The report also claims the emergence of teen sensation Pedri has convinced the club that they can afford to sell the Brazilian if they receive a suitable offer.
Financial pressures are hampering Paris Saint-Germain’s ability to retain Kylian Mbappe, which has put Manchester United on full alert.
The exciting Fenchman, who is regarded as one of the finest players in world football, is the subject of transfer speculation right now as PSG know that they need to tie him down to a new contract, especially as his current deal runs out at the end of 2022.
United and Real Madrid are two clubs that have been monitoring the situation at PSG, and are ready to pounce if he does not agree to sign a new contract and stay at the French Giants.
As is claiming that PSG may be forced to sell the likes of Julian Draxler and Leandro Paredes, but that still might not be enough to finance a new contract for Mbappe, meaning that they may be forced into letting the Frenchman leave.
And if that is the case, then United will be opening that cheque-book to try and bring the Frenchman to the Premier League, knowing that he the marquee signing that the club have been lacking over the last few seasons.
Amid the speculation Mbappe recently responded to speculation, and the attacker says his family will have input on the decision-making process: “We make every decision together, as a family. I think it’s the strongest possible thing,” Mbappe told Copa90. “This has pushed me higher and allowed me to be where I am today.
“Without them, it would be impossible, because sometimes you have bad moments. When you have bad moments in your career, you can see which people are there for you, and my parents are there for me every time.
“Without them, I don’t think I would have everything I do at the moment. They show me the right way to be and I’m really lucky to have these parents.”
Lets see how this all plays out guys
