‘Take him!’ – Manchester United and Man City fans react to stunning Paul Pogba transfer reports
Manchester United and Man City fans have been reacting to reports that the Blues are interested in bringing Paul Pogba to the club in the summer.
Pogba is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season and is widely expected to leave on a free, for the second time, this summer. According to various reports, which first surfaced in the Daily Mail, the Premier League champions are ‘exploring’ the possibility of a stunning transfer coup reminiscent of Carlos Tevez’s move across the city in 2009.
Due to transfer regulations, City would not be able to put a formal offer to Pogba until the end of the campaign but he is thought to be on the list of options for Pep Guardiola. The Mail add that the 29-year-old has not ruled out a transfer to the Etihad and would consider an offer.
According to The Athletic, Guardiola and City were believed to have rejected the opportunity to sign Pogba back in March when it became clear that the midfielder would be leaving the Theatre of Dreams. With Fernandinho since confirming his intention to leave the club, City are now in further need of a central midfielder, a void Pogba could fill.
Here are fans from both sides of the divide’s initial reaction to the reports that Pogba could be going to City.
