According to the latest reports, Manchester United have identified this perfect replacement for Paul Pogba ahead of the summer transfer window.

The relations between Paul Pogba and Manchester United are fraught. For almost a year now the Red Devils have struggled to convince their talisman to stay at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba has developed an itch.

It probably derived from the alluring mouth of super-agent Mino Raiola. The Italian born Dutchman’s cajoling words are notoriously hard to resist. And they can be even more appealing when his client is at a club that has been underperforming in the past couple of years.

When Paul Pogba arrived at Old Trafford he was sold the dream of competing for the Premier League title and the Champions League. The Frenchman was swept away by the ambitions of the new Jose Mourinho era at United.

However those ambitions failed miserably.

Now the Red Devils find themselves in a limbo.

It is a limbo that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to break. However it is one that you can hardly expect Paul Pogba to stick around for. The World Cup winning star is in the prime years of his career. Whilst he may have won the biggest prize in international football, the most acclaimed trophy in club football has eluded Pogba so far in his career.

And with United unlikely to lift the Champions League any time soon, the lure of Real Madrid and Juventus is a huge one.

However, United will not want to be wilted by the departure of Pogba. The club have had a year to come to terms with his departure and identify the ideal replacement for their star midfielder.

According to French outlet Foot Mercato via the Daily Express that replacement could be Lazio superstar and Serbian international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The towering 25 year old midfielder is certainly of the same ilk as Paul Pogba. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has the ability to dictate the midfield with ease. The Serbian is a real engine in the middle of the park and he can be effective going forward too.

His best season came during the 17/18 campaign in which he netted 12 times in the Serie A.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic undoubtedly has the potential to be as good as Pogba. The Frenchman hit similar numbers in the Serie A during his time at Juventus.

Next. These new clubs will also be fighting to sign Pogba. dark
