Man United lead chase to make Paul Pogba Jose Mourinho’s first signing – report

Manchester United are leading the race to bring Paul Pogba to the Premier League this summer, say reports

Manchester United are leading the race to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are yet to make any signings this summer following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their new manager.

Mourinho is believed to be working hard behind the scenes as he bids to revamp his squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Pogba has become one of Europe’s top midfielder since leaving United on a free transfer to join Juve back in the summer of 2012.

The midfielder has long been linked with a move back to the Premier League, and the Daily Express is now reporting that United are the firm favourites to bring him back to the club this summer.

Mourinho is said to be a big fan of Pogba, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past.
