Matic signing will improve Paul Pogba

Matic signing will improve Paul Pogba

Former Manchester United defender Irwin is confident that Pogba has what it takes to propel the Red Devils to their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

Manchester United's most recent signing Nemanja Matic has opened up on why it was an easy decision for him to leave Chelsea this season.

"I think Neymar is going to happen [to be] the same (as Pogba)".

Manchester United is considering paying £27 million for Paris Saint-Germain right-back Serge Aurier but he may not be eligible to enter the U.K., according to reports.

That makes the £89 million Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba last summer seem quite small, with Jose Mourinho, at the time, saying something similar.

"I was a little bit surprised by the fact Chelsea are selling to their rivals who will be challenging for the Premier League next year", said the Irishman.




The team that played the first 45 minutes on Wednesday had three notable additions to the starting line-up that Valverde met in Washington DC last week. With David de Gea retained and Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof added, an assault at the league is the minimum expectation. The arrival of Matic will give Pogba more freedom to go forward.

"I expect Paul Pogba to be a really powerful player this year", said Irwin, speaking on behalf of Marathonbet, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

Lukaku, 24, has hit the ground running since his £75 million move from Everton, scoring three goals in six preseason games this summer, but Giggs insists he will need to get better if he wants to be a hit at Old Trafford. "The club did a fantastic job by getting three of them, which is hard in the insane market we're in now".

Could Matic really have been a passenger every week in a team that dominated the league from nearly the very beginning of the season and then went on to be named champions?

He is not setting any lofty targets as the Red Devils prepare to rejoin the elite, with the Portuguese preferring to take things one step at a time. "With their history and with all the titles they have, I think it's natural for them".
