Manchester FC Offered a Perfect Midfield Partner for Paul Pogba by Mino Raiola
Manchester United have been offered the opportunity to sign Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi for the notorious super agent Mino Raiola, reportedly in Italy. Jose Mourinho has ruled out the possibility of signing more attackers in the summer, but is in the market for a new starting midfielder who will be associated with Paul Pogba.
Manchester FC has dabbled with a 4-3-3 formation in the last few weeks after Pogba complained of not having enough freedom as part of a midfield two, and Scott McTominay has been impressed since he came to one side to provide more balance.
However, Mourinho still wants to bring a world-class midfielder in the summer, especially with Michael Carrick hanging his boots to join United’s coaching staff. And now Rai Sport affirms that Raiola, who also represents Pogba, has offered another of his clients, Matuidi, to Mourinho as the solution to his problems.
The Juventus midfielder has played alongside Pogba with good results with the French national team, while Max Allegri even switched to a 4-3-3 formation to get Matuidi out of the team. The 30-year-old moved to Turin from PSG last summer and is already one of Allegri’s most reliable players, and the Frenchman chose to leave at Tottenham despite recently returning from injury.
Matuidi has given several excellent samples in a Juve jersey this season, and Raiola is in constant contact with United about the possibility of bringing another of his clients to Old Trafford. The Red Devils already have the players represented by Raiola Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Romero in their books, while also helping to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Arsenal in an exchange for Alexis Sánchez.
