'Manchester United should spend £100m Pogba money on Payet and Kante'
Former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore believes Jose Mourinho should be targeting two other France stars instead of the Juventus midfielder
Manchester United should sign N’Golo Kante and Dimitri Payet with the money they are spending on Paul Pogba, according to Stan Collymore.
United is reportedly in talks over a world-record 100 million pound ($130 million) deal for the Juventus midfielder, who would be Jose Mourinho’s fourth summer signing since his arrival at Old Trafford.
Pogba has been criticized for his form during Euro 2016 and Collymore believes United should be targeting two other players who have starred for France this summer.
“Because what United need is to be good in the here and now of this season and, while I have no doubt Pogba could become one of the best midfielders on the planet in time, I don’t think he’d guarantee the immediate success in the way those two would,”he said. “Kante, in terms of the way he breaks down play and his own athleticism, would be a better signing.
“And if you bought Kante and Payet, you’d probably still have £20 million to £40 million left for another signing.”
