Paul Pogba Signing Would Top Off An Almost Perfect Transfer Window For Manchester United
Posted by Featured Articles | Published on July 29, 2016
As I type, Manchester United are rumoured to be within 48 hours of bringing Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford – in a move which would shatter all transfer records. This would follow summer signings Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and the self-titled ‘God of Manchester’, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
On paper, Jose Mourinho would have had a fantastic summer. Bringing in a proven goalscorer, something which the Reds sorely missed last season in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Bringing in a player that can provide that bit of magic or spark at the vital moments in a tight game, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and bringing in a reinforcement at centre back in Eric Bailly, and finally, Mr Paul Pogba. The Frenchman would fill the role he should’ve occupied four years ago, being the man in the middle that we build our team around. A proper central midfielder, that has it all in his locker.
Granted, we could still see more ins and outs at The Theatre of Dreams but that would be the main bit of business done, as Jose Mourinho confirmed himself in one of his early press conferences. In addition, Manchester United would finally have a team and a manager to be reckoned with for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson.
When David Moyes took over, he spoke of being in awe and wanting to build something at Old Trafford. Louis van Gaal came with his philosophy and his three-year plan. Jose Mourinho, on the other hand, has come to win and the Reds have missed that attitude and mentality so much over the past three seasons.
The signings prove that not only has Jose got one eye on the future as proven in Bailly and Pogba (touch wood) but also ready-made quality in Zlatan, Mkhitaryan and again, Pogba. Players that will get the world sitting up and taking notice of Manchester United once more.
Now I had my doubts about Jose Mourinho and *whispers* I still do beneath all the excitement, but one thing you cannot deny is the man is a winner and despite the disastrous tour of China we enter the season with a winners’ mentality, excitement and confidence.
That’s the best thing Jose Mourinho has brought through the door at Old Trafford – the winning mentality. You can sense it in his press conferences, you can sense it in his eyes, this man is here to do the business. And for once, although I may be speaking too soon, Mourinho seems intent on letting the results and the results only do the talking.
There’s still a lot of work to be done to get Manchester United back where we belong but as we approach the end of July and just two weeks before the new season it’s safe to say things feel right at Manchester United once again!
