Marco Verratti to replace Pogba at Old Trafford

Pogba - Manchester United

Manchester United have reportedly expressed interest in signing Marco Verratti. The player will be signed to replace Paul Pogba. Who is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer? Paul Pogba must be replaced.

Pogba has a good chance of leaving Manchester United on a Bosman deal, so United must strengthen. Donny van de Beek, who left the club on loan in January, may seek a permanent exit from the club, and Matic’s future at the club is also in doubt. Manchester United are therefore looking to sign a new midfielder this summer.

According to Transfers, Manchester United are also eyeing the PSG player. The player is valued at around 55 million euros (£46m). A number of other clubs are also interested in the Italian star. The value of Marco Verratti is estimated at around 46 million euros (£55m).

There is no doubt that Verratti needs a change of manager after winning every major domestic trophy with PSG on several occasions. Verratti was a key player of the Italian team that won the European Championships last summer but North Macedonia defeated the Italians recently and they will not play in the 2022 FIFA World Cup for the second consecutive time.

Marco Verratti not the only midfielder Manchester United is looking for

Marco Verratti represented Italy at the 2014 World Cup. A decision must be made about whether he is good enough to improve Old Trafford’s midfield. Over the past two years, Pogba has suffered from injuries. 

It has been a frustrating season for even Verratti, due to his consistent injury concerns. He will turn 30 in November, so in my opinion, Manchester United should ignore the Italian and look for a quality youngster to strengthen the midfield.

Meanwhile Declan Rice of West Ham United has been linked with a move to Manchester United. While other names such as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio), Youri Tielemans (Leicester City) and Ryan Gravenberch (Ajax) have also been mentioned. However, Verratti, has been on the target at Manchester United. As they look to shortlist their options in midfield.
