Paul Pogba’s speculated behind the scenes job for Manchester United in trying to lure in players to Old Trafford has continued to garner attention, and this time, the player linked to the Red Devils is his former Juventus teammate.
Pogba, known as ‘Agent P,’ was said to be instrumental in having an influence over convincing Romelu Lukaku to move to United in the summer. The former Everton striker has been a stupendous signing for Jose Mourinho’s side since his arrival, and now, it looks like Pogba has found a new target.
A report in the Sports Bible pointed out that Pogba seems to be back in business, and his latest post on Instagram has sent the United fans in a frenzy.
The celebrated midfielder wished Juventus star player Paulo Dybala on his birthday, and continued with his hashtag ‘Agent P’ to get the fans excited. The Frenchman could very well be teasing the fans with his usage of the hashtag, or he could be truly trying to persuade his friend to come to England – only time will tell.
Dybala has already earned great reputation and respect due to his performances for Juventus and Argentina. The now 24-year-old could be a solid addition for the Mancunian club, who are also being linked with moves for Antoine Griezmann and Mesut Ozil.
The Argentine could set United fans truly buzzing if he does get persuaded by ‘Agent P’. The forward has already won two Serie A titles, and has netted 55 goals in 111 matches for the Old Lady of Turin.
Signing him would be a major boost and a statement of intent by United. Supporters of the club will genuinely hope Pogba executes his behind-the-scenes job well, and brings another big player to the Theatre of Dreams.
