Pundit: Man United should sign Arsenal youngster if Paul Pogba leaves
Stan Collymore says Man United should consider a move to sign Arsenal youngster Matteo Guendouzi if Paul Pogba leaves Old Trafford this summer
Stan Collymore has urged Manchester United to consider a move to sign Arsenal youngster Matteo Guendouzi if Paul Pogba leaves Old Trafford this summer.
Pogba’s situation at Old Trafford has been a relentless source of speculation since the end of the season as doubts about his future continue.
The 26-year-old himself helped to fuel the situation by admitting that he would be open to a move away from Manchester United earlier this month.
It remains to be seen whether Pogba will stay at Old Trafford or if the Red Devils will decide to cash-in on the French World Cup winner.
However, if Pogba leaves, former Liverpool FC star Collymore believes that Manchester United should target the likes of Guendouzi, Declan Rice and James Maddison.
Collymore is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “Of course, if Pogba is allowed to go, then Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have big money to reinvest and I’d go down a different route to the Galacticos-lite path United have trodden in recent seasons.
“I’d be looking at a mixture of Rice, James Maddison and Matteo Guendouzi, three players who would thrive at United.
“They’re young, talented, you could bring them up together and even have a little change left over from Pogba – even if you signed all three.”
Manchester United completed their first signing of the summer transfer window earlier this month when they brought in midfielder Daniel James from Swansea City.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last term in what ended up being a season to forget for the club.
They have not won the Premier League title since 2013 and will have to play in the Europa League next season.
