Paul Pogba

Man United midfielder Paul Pogba is no doubt one of the most controversial players at the Old Trafford since his switch from Seria A giants, Juventus.

Controversies around him were mostly recorded when former manager Jose Mourinho was in charge at the Old Trafford as he had a faceoff with the Portuguese manager, a development that attracted negative stories from the media.

We will not forget the outburst on the field, the banter on the media, and the dressing room crisis.

Peace was only restored with reduced controversy when Jose Mourinho was sacked and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was made to take over.

Oliver Norwood has come out to reveal some hidden truths about the France international when he said “Pogba is misunderstood”

Norwood boasts of knowing Pogba as they both came through the United youth system alongside Jesse Lingard who is also a first-team player.

According to him, Pogba is a nice guy who is not as controversial as people put him out to be.

He said,  “I think so, yeah. He’s actually a really nice down-to-earth lad, he was when I knew him.

“When we were in the youth team he was always singing and dancing then, so it’s nothing to do with the hype [surrounding] him now.” He told Sky Sports.

What has now changed about Paul Pogba is what is unknown to everyone because many years have passed since his days in the youth ranks at Man United and his years at Juventus.

Although, his performance for Man United has been satisfactory with the strength of the midfield built around him. That has given Pogba the stability he has recently enjoyed.

Having won the league at Seria A and the World Cup with France, winning the EPL and the Champions League with the Red Devils will, of course, settle the scores for the French player.

Dayot Upamecano

This might not be good news for English Premier League club Manchester United as they have been told that they are not alone in the race for Dayot Upamecano and it is made clear that there are yet to be a concrete offer for his signature.

The player himself made this known when he admitted he has been in great demand but noted that he does not know what the future holds for him as he has just signed a new contract with his club because he wants to be with his teammates.

The RB Leipzig was also on Arsenal radar but with the capture of Gabriel Magalhaes, the Red Devils will now enjoy a free run for his signature in   January.

It is understood that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the 21-year-old as he was attracted by his impressive performances on RB Leipzig’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.

However, reports claim that the Red Devils board is not too convinced about the readiness of Dayot Upamecano for a first-team football in the English Premier League and that has to be sorted out before an official bid is submitted to his club in January.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo might have parted ways with his former club, Manchester United but that does not mean he has not been having one influence or the other on the club.

This was made known by former defender Patrice Evra who claims that the Portuguese star played a major role in bringing Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United in the last winter transfer window.

He revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who gave the go-ahead to the club to move in for Bruno Fernandes as they did not know anything about the player before his capture.

Patrice Evra stated that Bruno Fernandes is now making a massive impact at the club by ensuring more wins and helping to bring out the best in Paul Pogba.

Bruno Fernandes has even boasted that the best is yet to be seen of him as he has been training very hard to help his team the more in the coming season.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a living legend of Manchester United as he made a very big impact at the Old Trafford, including winning of the Champions League, the Premier League as well as winning the World Best Footballer award as a Red Devils player under manager Alex Ferguson.

Benoit Badiashile

The search by English Premier League club Manchester United continues for players that will turn their season around but they are only close to sealing one.

Manchester United are keen on a new defender that will partner Harry Maguire and have been linked with French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco star, Benoit Badiashile with their first bid rejected.

According to AS, the Red Devils had submitted an offer of £25 million for the signature of Benoit Badiashile but Monaco rejected it because it was £2 million short of his release clause.

This means the Red Devils can complete the signing of the central defender if they return with an additional £2 million bid as that is the only way they can land him in January transfer window.

The Spanish outlet also adds that Monaco are not interested in parting ways with Benoit Badiashile because they still have a big need of him but they will be left with no choice if his release clause is tabled.

One area manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will focus on in January is the defensive department after seeing his team concede 36 goals   last season.

However, we expect to see more signings from the Red Devils in January.
