His transfer fee has eclipsed the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Neymar to name a few.

Pogba the new number 6 for Manchester United put pen to paper yesterday signing a five year deal with the English giants which will see the Frenchman earn a cool 290,000 pounds a week. His agent Mino Raiola will pocket almost 20 million pounds from this deal which makes both Pogba and him surely very happy with the way things have gone.
The Frenchman was ecstatic re-joining his club saying that Manchester United has always been a club with a special place in his heart. The current boss was also happy with the deal going on to say the Pogba will only improve and get better as he is young and will make his position here is own for many years.
This deal has definitely pleased the supporters of United creating a sense of euphoria, optimism and hope for them as they believe with this addition their team along with the special one can go to achieve greater success in the coming years. But there are others who feel the price tag for Pogba is not justified with bosses like Jurgen Kloop and Arsene Wenger taking a dig the substantial amount of money being spent for a 23 year old.
Paul Pogba you could say it’s like a Cinderella story coming up in the youth ranks with Manchester United and playing just seven games under Ferguson who felt he had no place in his United squad was sold for less than a million to Juventus and in his spell with the Italian giants goes on to win 4 consecutive Serie-A titles and reaching the finals of the Champions league losing out to Barcelona and win 2 Italian Cups in the process make himself a key player for the Bianconeri and also a pivotal player for the France national team and come back to his old club being worth hundred times more than what he was sold for.
With a plethora of huge clubs who were interested in signing the French star including the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG to name a few, the Frenchman chose United a club which has been struggling since the great Sir Alex Ferguson had stepped down, struggling to break into the top four failing to qualify for the Champions League this season, a club which used to fear many when they stepped into the Theatre of Dreams. Was Pogba’s move influenced by the fact that Jose Mourinho “the Special One” was appointed as head coach or because the Frenchman would earn a substantial amount of money in his time as a United player?

Nevertheless, what the circumstances for Pogba’s move to the Red Devils were, his move has strengthened United’s midfield which has certainly lost its bite since Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs retired. Ander Herrera and Morgan Schneiderlin have been average, Bastian schweinsteiger riddled with injuries in his debut season and looks unlikely to get any game-time this season and with Carrick unable to play many matches in a season because of his age, it seems it would be a new lease on life for United supporters with the addition of Pogba would not only add youth but also his exceptional vision, ball control, his long range striking and his physical strength in the middle of the park which he displayed during his time at Juventus. More importantly it would see United skipper Wayne Rooney play in his preferred position which is behind the striker the number ten role rather than the middle of the park which he has been playing for quite a few years now.
With a mammoth price tag comes huge expectations and it will be only be a matter of time if Pogba’s transfer fee will be justified. The whole world, be it neutral or United supports will be watching closely to see how Pogba performs on the field. Will his addition to the United squad strengthen the Red Devils or will he just be an overpriced footballer, the footballing world will find out very soon when the new season kicks off next week with Manchester United taking on Bournemouth.
The 100 million pound question is Pogba are you ready to deliver?
