Pogba A Fantastic Signing For The Premier League – Thierry Henry


Former Arsenal star striker, Thierry Henry says he is excited to see Paul Pogba in the English Premier League.

Thierry Henry believes Manchester United should play Paul Pogba further forward rather than sit back deep in the midfield.

He hopes Paul Pogba is utilised in an attacking midfield position by Jose Mourinho.

Henry also admitted that he is excited to see the France international play in the Premier League.

Juventus midfielder Pogba flew by private jet to Manchester on Monday morning to undergo a medical to finalise his return to Old Trafford.

Henry added:

“The only problem you have at the moment is it’s crazy the amount of money that goes into transfers at the moment.

“Is it worth it or not? I don’t know. If you compare to the other eras then you can say ‘wow that’s crazy’, and it is crazy.

“But that is the amount of money you need to pay if you want the likes of Paul Pogba, so you have to pay.”

Former Old Trafford skipper, Gary Neville says Pogba has guts and the big personality to make United successful again.

According to Neville, Paul Pogba will restore some of the personality that has been missing from Manchester United in recent seasons.

The former United captain also believes the acquisition of Ibrahimovic and Pogba would see the club re-install a degree of arrogance synonymous with his time at the club.

Once completed, Pogba will be the fourth signing Jose Mourinho has brought to United since replacing Louis van Gaal.

His signing follows the arrivals of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
