Mourinho Urged To Not Sign Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, with reports claiming Jose Mourinho is ready to spend above £100m to bring him to Old Trafford.

However, former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has urged Mourinho to not sign Paul Pogba, and bring in his France teammates N’Golo Kante and Dimitri Payet instead.

Jose Mourinho Looking To Sign France’s Midfield Duo

“Paul Pogba is a great player and someone I rate tremendously. He’s the epitome of the modern midfielder: athletic, covers the ground well and very tactically aware. But, for £100m of anybody’s money, I’d have to say, ‘No way!'” Collymore wrote in the Mirror.

“That’s the figure Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly willing to pay Juventus to take the 23-year-old back to Old Trafford and I just don’t see where the value is. In fact, I don’t even think he’s worth £70m or £75m, if I’m being honest.

“The smarter move from Mourinho would be to sign two other members of the France team who’ll take on Portugal in the Euro 2016 final on Sunday night – N’Golo Kante and Dimitri Payet instead.

“Because what United need is to be good in the here and now of this season and, while I have no doubt Pogba could become one of the best midfielders on the planet in time, I don’t think he’d guarantee the immediate success in the way those two would.

“Kante , in terms of the way he breaks down play and his own athleticism, would be a better signing. And if you bought Kante and Payet , you’d probably still have £20m to £40m left for another signing.”

    Why on earth will man utd splash such an a huge amount on Pogba. He is not valued £30m , How much is James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos, Blaise Matuidi and Luka Modric Valued ???? Cos all these players are far better than Pogba and they can fit perfectly well in the team.

    Correct, good talk. Mou should listen to wat dis guy saying. And Pogba too arrogance, if u look to d guy very well. Pls for saying, we don’t need someone like that in our team,notice this guy . His a good player to say d fat. Take Matuidi n Payet, beacus we hv already loss Sanchez. Pls Mou think of it, his good advice. Thnx. Up Man U. Up Champion.
