Man United making ‘small steps’ towards signing France star – report

Manchester United are edging closer towards re-signing Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports

Manchester United are making “small steps” towards re-signing Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a number of players over the last few days as Jose Mourinho prepares for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

United have already completed the signing of defender Eric Bailly on a four-year contract from Villarreal as Mourinho moved quickly to bolster his squad.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford in recent weeks.

Pogba left Old Trafford to join Juventus for just £800,000 but has since developed into one of Europe’s top midfield talents.

Now, Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that United are taking steps towards bringing Pogba back to the club, but that they face competition from Real Madrid for his signature.
