Man United didn’t appear to have the best transfer window, but a flurry of signings late in the day may have at least appeased the Norwegian manager. Though Ole’s reported major target, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho was missed, the likes of Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani at least gives Man United some different options.
Had things been different this summer, then Pogba might well have been on his way back to former club Juventus.
Journalist, Fabrizio Romano, has suggested that the Old Lady were ready to bring the footballer back to the Italian top flight, but the coronavirus pandemic scuppered any thoughts of that move happening.
“If there was no coronavirus, Paul Pogba today would’ve been playing for Juventus,” he said, “Juve were ready to make an important bid for Pogba but with the financial crisis it was impossible.”
Like so many other clubs, Old Lady have not been immune to the financial fall-out, making big money purchases almost impossible. Whether the Bianconeri will come back again for the midfielder in future will, arguably, depend on how long the pandemic continues.
