Fan View: Paul Pogba’s Situation At ManU Has Echoes Of Wayne Rooney In 2013
Manchester United knew they were setting themselves up for potential disgrace when they decided to make Paul Pogba the world’s most expensive signing.
It was a brave move to pay £89 million for him after allowing him to join Juventus for little to nothing, with Sir Alex Ferguson criticizing the player for his lack of respect for the club.
After winning four league titles in four seasons in Italy, Ed Woodward clearly thought the midfielder was worth the risk, and ‘Pogback’ became an internet sensation.
United fans believed the foundations were being prepared for the team to recapture their long-held position at the top of the league, with big-name manager Jose Mourinho in charge and a blockbuster signing on the way.
