After finally putting pen-to-paper on what is, currently, a world record transfer, Paul Pogba will be under a huge amount of pressure to produce the goods.

This country of ours has a strange trait whereby it loves to bring people down to earth with a bang, a penchant for knocking people off of their pedestal in order to generate tabloid newspaper sales.

Pogba will be told that his every movement, on and off the pitch, will come under scrutiny, even more so after re-joining the club he left for a pittance a few years back only to come back for an absolute fortune.

But, when it comes to his professional capabilities, Jose Mourinho is absolutely certain that in signing Pogba Manchester United have hit the jackpot with Mourinho remarking to the media,

“He is an unbelievable midfield player and has everything.

“He has such physicality but at the same time, agility, co-ordination and skill.”


That is something we`ll, no doubt, witness over the coming months.

But the signing of Pogba might also signal the reversing of a trend.

In recent years it has been the Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga that have proven to be the tempting environments for Europe`s top players to flock to, the former Manchester United defender and ex-Valencia coach, Gary Neville, has remarked about the transfer,

“It is a big fee, but the Prem was losing grade-A players to Spain. He is the top signing of the summer.”

He probably he but with Manchester United also signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic perhaps the Premier League is, once again, turning into the most attractive league in Europe.

Your thoughts please.
