Paul Pogba can be best player in the world claims Mourinho
Jose Mourinho raves about new Manchester United signing, with Paul Pogba touching down in Manchester
August 8th, 2016
We’ve all been bored to death of the protracted Paul Pogba signing, although it now appears that Manchester United have their man.
A deal has been agreed with Juventus and the player’s agent to ensure that the French midfielder can re-sign for the Red Devils, four years after leaving them to join Juventus.
Since then, Pogba has regularly lit up the stage for the Turin club, with Jose Mourinho evidently rating a player with whom he has never worked, although the United boss has sung the praises of the midfielder.
“He’s our player assuming everything goes well in the medical, I will be there waiting for him on Tuesday,” said Mourinho.
“We have signed one defender, one striker, one midfielder and a creative this summer so it has been a good market for us. I honestly don’t know the exact amount of money we have paid for Pogba, though if it is a new world record I don’t think we need to be sad about that. Real Madrid were not sad when they set a new record for Gareth Bale, they were proud.
“It is a lot of money of course but football is a crazy industry, and very often what seems expensive now does not seem so bad in three years or so. I know we are getting a very good player and I think United is the perfect club to bring him to the level he wants to be at.
“We want to bring Manchester United to the top again and if you want to be the best player in the world this is the club to join. We have everything to offer him and he is coming because he knows the club and the city and he wants to be a part of the Manchester United project.”
