Speculate to Accumulate?

7 Jul

For the second consecutive day the tabloid press are latching on to the suggestion that Manchester United are set to smash the world transfer record.

Yesterday we reported on how Ed Woodward had spoken with representatives of the French midfielder Paul Pogba with a view to bringing the striker back to Old Trafford for a fee of £100 million.

The impending deal would see the fee Real Madrid paid to Tottenham Hotspur, of £85 million smashed.

Today one other small piece of information has also come to light surrounding the deal.

Our good friends at the Sun are inferring that Pogba will be offered a 5 year deal said to be a colossal £78 million.

Now whether Pogba who left Manchester United for nothing four years ago, after joining us from Le Havre, can be swayed to make a sentimental return remains to be seen.

However, the mere fact that Manchester United are continually being linked with the 23-year-old suggests to me that the purse strings have been well and truly relaxed in in order to restore Manchester United to their rightful place in English and European football.

The expression ‘speculate to accumulate` springs to mind!
