Manchester United criticized for Paul Pogba transfer with £89million deal labeled ‘worst signing in history’



Bestinau got that-


Manchester United were guilty of making the ‘worst signing in history’ when they brought Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford, talkSPORT has been told, because of how much they spent to re-sign him.

That’s according to former boxer and huge Red Devils fan Anthony Crolla, who has criticized the club for their “absolutely awful thing”.

Pogba’s frustrating spell at Man United could soon be over

It looks like Pogba will be leaving Old Trafford for a second time this summer when his contract expires, and many clubs across Europe are excited about his services.

The Frenchman first left the Red Devils in 2012, joining Juventus on a £1.5m deal.

United then decided to bring him back four years later after an impressive spell in Italy, which cost a world record £89 million at the time.

However, the huge deal has not gone the way either the club or the player would have liked, and now the midfielder is poised to leave the club after failing to secure a new contract.

While Pogba got off to a good start after his return to United, winning two trophies in his debut season and scoring in the Europa League final, he has been unable to show which talents have made the club decide to sign him from Juventus, or he has. show that regularly for his national team.

However, the club is blamed for Pogba’s inability to justify his price tag, due to their decision to let him leave initially, then re-sign him and now let him go for free again.

Since returning to the club in 2016, Pogba has won the Europa League and the League Cup, but has not managed to get his hands on silverware since then.

Speaking on talkSPORT’s Weekend Sports Breakfast, former WBA lightweight champion Anthony Crolla and big Red Devils supporter said: “I think I speak on behalf of Manchester United fans, or most people with a pair of eyes really, you have to think that Paul Pogba will be one of the worst cases in history financially.

“To let a player go, then sign him back for £90m and then let him go free again, it’s just absolutely mental.

“It doesn’t matter what you thought, how he didn’t deliver for the club and certain things that were said during his stay at the club, you can’t help but say it’s been absolutely terrible business.”

The former boxer then compared Pogba to Bruno Fernandes, who is about to sign a new five-year deal, and says he has been one of the club’s best signings in years.

“Bruno [Fernandes] some people will have their thoughts but to me he is one of the best signings we’ve had in recent years,” he added.

“I know his form is a bit patchy at the moment, but in that season” [2020/21]he carried us.

“For me, I believe one is Manchester United, and I believe the other is not really Manchester United, he is an individual.”
