Paul Pogba has reportedly expressed his excitement at the prospect of Jadon Sancho arriving at Manchester United. The Frenchman is expected to stay at the club despite earlier in the year looking destined to leave this summer following a series of injury troubles.
Mino Raiola was at the heart of a dispute with the club over his client’s future but Pogba now seems to be enjoying his football again following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes.
The former Juventus man is one of several Premier League stars including Harry Kane to benefit from the restart, having been sidelined before the coronavirus crisis.
Now Pogba is keen to form a formidable partnership with Fernandes in United’s midfield, something that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes could be a driving force when it comes to closing the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City.
There’s no doubt that United will need to bring in several new faces at the end of the season, if they’re to compete for the title next term.

“We’re not saying that’s definitely going to happen but that would appear to suggest Manchester United’s midfield certainly now has the numbers in so I don’t see recruitment coming in there.
“Perhaps that might move the conversation away from Jack Grealish or anybody else, Donny van de Beek etc.”
Ed Woodward is believed to have taken out a loan of £140million to spend on transfers.
Dortmund want around £120m for Sancho but realise that may be unrealistic within the current financial climate.

Manager Lucien Favre benched the 20-year-old for the final two matches of the Bundesliga season, which would suggest they’re planning for the future without him.
Pogba could also be in line for a new contract, with his current deal set to expire in 2021
The United hierarchy will want to avoid losing a player of Pogba’s value on a free transfer at all costs.
Ultimately, the decision may rest with the player though as we have recently seen with Thiago Alcantara at Bayern Munich.
