Man Utd urged to move for ‘unbelievable’ PSG star as potential Paul Pogba replacement | Football | Sport

The Premier League side completed a remarkable big-spending summer transfer window in an attempt to topple rivals Manchester City at the top of the division.  

United spent over £120million during the off-season. The blockbuster £73million arrival of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and the incredible return of Cristiano Ronaldo have improved Solskjaer’s attacking options. 

Ronaldo already has five goals in his first five appearances since completing his deadline day transfer from Juventus.  

The bargain £35m acquisition of Raphael Varane finally handed the Norwegian his dream partner for Harry Maguire, while Tom Heaton has returned to provide competition for David De Gea and Dean Henderson.  

However, there was some criticism from fans and pundits that the Old Trafford transfer hierarchy did not sign a new midfielder.

“I think he wants to control play and he wants to dictate. He’s a player who can find passes, the way Carrick used to do.” 

Young continued: “The Michael Carrick type has been missing for years. They haven’t gone out and replaced Michael Carrick.  


“Don’t get me wrong, Fred and McTominay are good players but I don’t think there’s a Michael Carrick around.

“I was watching the PSG v [Man] City game yesterday and I think Marco Verratti is the closest one and nobody’s gone out to test the water to try to sign him.  

“I think he would be an unbelievable signing for Manchester United.”
