It is no secret that Manchester City have not been good enough this season and will have to make some key changes over the summer to come back as a force again next season.
“I expect Yaya Toure to leave Manchester City this summer – and they need to sign Paul Pogba to replace him,” Redknapp said.Embed from Getty Images
“After winning two trophies last season, this has been a pathetic defence of their Premier League title from City and their ageing squad desperately needs refreshing.”
Many of Europe’s elite have been linked with Juventus ace Pogba, and his services will require a world record transfer fee, according to his agent.
Transfermarkt.co.uk rate Pogba at £44 million, which is £42 million less than the current record transfer fee that saw Gareth Bale move to Real Madrid in 2013.
Redknapp highly regards Pogba and says it is no surprise that so many clubs are chasing his services.
“He’s a fantastic talent who can do everything. Players like him don’t come along very often and at 22 years old he has a huge future in front of him.”Embed from Getty Images
If City are to sign Pogba it will be a real kick in the teeth to the Frenchman’s former club, Manchester United, to see him sign for their noisy neighbours.
The young midfield enforcer has been linked with Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City so whoever wins the race for his signature will be a stronger force.
Is Paul Pogba what City need and is a move for him possible?
