Man United’s injury concerns have really thinned out their arsenal of options to choose from.
The club’s ongoing plight in the Premier League, wherein they’ve gone three games without netting a goal and are presently struggling in the 6th position unable to bridge the gap with Chelsea, is testament to the same.
Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, and Scott McTominay are all key performers who are long-term absentees and their recent form has suffered incredibly as a result.
The acquisition of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting does spell positivity for the roster, they still require these crucial players to be fit in order to performer optimally. However, even that may not occur.
According to MEN, Paul Pogba still wishes to leave Man United and has expressly told his teammates the same.
It is believed that Pogba’s head is ‘not currently at the club’ and the injuries, surgery, and recovery that has been plaguing him presently isn’t helping matters. It appears that a majority of the players agree with the Frenchman and consider it best for the club’s interest if he moves on.
Interestingly, in that regard, the attacking midfielder’s valuation may be a thing of some dispute. The high sum that United were holding out for in the summer may not be applicable now given the injuries he’s suffered and the lack of game time this campaign as well as the fact that the 26-year-old is presently serving out the final 18 months of his contract at Old Trafford.
While the last point can be amended via a year-long extension clause, it is believed that the player’s agent Mino Raiola’s involvement will be crucial to his future.
Real Madrid and Juventus remain the most interested and most viable parties for his signature, although not much has changed since the summer with respect to their financial capability of making the transfer.
