Man United interested in signing €70m-rated Uruguay international

Man United are reportedly keeping an eye on Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde and could be interested in a future swap deal involving Paul Pogba in the near future. The 22-year-old midfielder looks a hugely impressive talent and is becoming an increasingly important part of Zizou’s side with some influential displays from the middle of the park.

Red Devils could do well to bring in an upgrade on Paul Pogba in midfield, with the France international never really managing to hit his peak form in his time at Man United. It seems Man United could be ready to exchange the players if the opportunity presents itself, following Paul’s recent comments flirting with a possible future move to Real Madrid.

It remains to be seen if Los Blancos would be willing to let a talent like Federico go, but they may well find it hard to turn down the opportunity to add Paul. Even if the 27-year-old hasn’t been at his best for Man Utd for some time, he remains the kind of big-name ‘Galactico’ that Perez likes, and on his day he is still capable of world-class displays.

France international might also benefit from a change of scene and find it easier to cope with the different pace of the game in La Liga, so could get back to his best with a move away from the Red Devils.
