In a recent report, Sky Sports mentions that Real Madrid are interested in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. It is understood that Ancelotti is hoping to add strength to the attack and the European Champions have identified the French midfielder as a potential transfer option this summer. Los Blancos have made an early offer although they remain in a three -way battle with PSG and Juventus over the signing.
Pogba’s Injury Campaign This Season
The 29 -year -old has had a poor campaign with the Red Devils, as he suffered an injury during the season. He was only able to score 1 goal and make 9 assists in 27 appearances for United on all fields.
The World Cup winning ambition has been dashed since the end of the season, after averaging 1.5 shots, 1.2 key operands, 0.7 tackles, 0.7 interceptions and 2.0 dribbles per game in the Premier League. However, he was really good at sending the ball to his team-mates after completing 83.5% of his operant attempts in top English football (statistics over whoscored).
Is Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Brought to the Santiago Bernabeu?
Paul Pogba has a strong presence in the central area of the field. He is a versatile midfielder who can switch between attack and defense comfortably. Pogba excelled when passing defenders with his agility and speed. Furthermore, he is also able to create some clear scoring chances on the attacking side with his field vision and accurate passing ability.
The French international is primarily a central midfielder but is versatile enough to play in a holding position and as a forward midfielder. He can also fill in as a left -corner player if needed, signaling his ability in the middle area of the field.
At 29 years old, he is now a prima donna and could still be offered to play high-level football for a few more years, as he remains untouched by injuries that could be a major setback.
Los Blancos leader Ancelotti would be wise to secure a signature this summer as he needs more competition in midfield and wants to strengthen his attack. A player of such caliber would be a great addition to the Spanish giants, as he will certainly add bites and steel to the squad at the Santiago Bernabeu.
