Are Manchester United title contenders without Pogba?


Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is set to make United title contenders and fans should be excited about their activity during this transfer window.

The new season kicks off in a few weeks and the prospects of the line-up is already exciting.

The Red Devils completed the deal of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund after the Euro 2020 for a reported fee of £72.6 million as revealed by The Athletic.

Sancho scored 51 goals and 64 assists in four seasons at Dortmund and United is going to have him for the next 5 years.

That is something the whole club should be excited about as he is just 21 years old.

Solksjaer did not stop there as he would be looking to make United title contenders after the team could only finish second behind rivals Manchester City despite an impressive home run.

United has also completed agreement with experienced French defender Rafael Varane from Real Madrid.

With the likes of Bruno Fernandes, McTominay and Rashford, the midfield is packed.

Is Pogba needed?

The question now is “Will Pogba still be an integral part of this team?” The French midfielder has been in the news almost every transfer season about his future and this might be the right time for United to let him leave.

Pogba’s time at United has shown how he has always been a player that cannot be thrown away. He has shown how useful he can be in times of need.

Even when Bruno’s form began to dip, it was Pogba that still took the blame even though he made the team look better at some point.

If we are to call Manchester United title contenders this season, then it is not only the acquisition that needs touches, but also the team play.

The likes of Chelsea and Liverpool are also making huge signings to improve their chances of snatching the title from Manchester City who still remain favorites despite letting Aguero leave at the end of last season.
