Manchester United fans can’t seem to contain their excitement with speculation that Paul Pogba is being line up by Jose Mourinho as his first big signing.
Mourinho has identified the midfield as an area that needs to be strengthened this summer and fans are delighted with rumours that it could be Pogba.
Spain’s AS newspaper today reported that Pogba was close to a £120m switch to the Premier League and to Old Trafford and United fans have taken to Twitter to show their excitement.
Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan, James Rodriguez and Pogba in this transfer window please 🙏🙏 #MUFC

Unfortunately for Manchester United fans any deal for the Frenchman is still quite a bit away with Real Madrid also set to be interested in signing the man priced at over £100m.
It also remains to be seen if Pogba would like to move back to Old Trafford after how he was previously treated and sent on his way by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Pogba was so far down the pecking order under Ferguson that even when the midfield was injury ravaged he opted to bring on Rafael in midfield rather than the French midfielder.
Since then Pogba has become a star and is one of the highest rated players in Europe after a great few seasons with Juventus in Serie A.
Pogba is currently gearing up for France’s Last 16 tie against the Republic of Ireland on Sunday as they bid to set up a potential quarter-final game with England.
So far Pogba has failed to live up to the huge expectations on him before the tournament but that hasn’t turned United fans off the prospect of buying the midfielder.
