According to the latest reports, Manchester United have finally identified the perfect Paul Pogba replacement and could soon bring him to Old Trafford.

The Frenchman exudes confidence on the pitch. Paul Pogba is an exuberant character. He is a mixed bag too. At times he can dictate games and win them single handedly, other times he can shrivel and vanish into thin air. His story at Manchester United is a turbulent and prolonged one.

It began when Paul Pogba was just a kid, he honed his skills in the club’s academy before moving to Juventus at just 19 years of age.

Merely four years following his departure, Paul Pogba would return to his old stomping ground for a club record fee.

This time he would be the linchpin of the side under Jose Mourinho’s revolution. But alas, that revolution was futile and Paul Pogba never managed to spread his wings at Old Trafford.

More from Red Devil Armada

Often times the Frenchman was left frustrated by the rigid tactics deployed by Mourinho which deprived him of his freedom.

When Mourinho eventually left, there were signs Pogba was back to his best. The Frenchman when he has been fit has thrived under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s leadership.

Now the major challenge for the Red Devils is to deter the cajoling words of Pogba’s infamous agent, Mino Raiola.

Unfortunately according to the latest reports, United seem to be fighting a losing battle on that front.

It is becoming increasingly more likely that the Frenchman will depart the club for pastures new in the summer window.

But United seem well prepared for that inevitable departure.

According to Spanish outlet Sport via the Daily Express, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Red Devils have identified Donny van de Beek as the ideal replacement for Paul Pogba.

The Ajax midfielder seems like the perfect candidate for the role.

Donny van de Beek has been hugely impressive over the last number of seasons and was instrumental in helping the Dutch side reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

At 23 years of age Donny van de Beek has plenty of time to improve but already he is an accomplished all round midfielder who is able to contribute effectively in attack and defence.
