The perfect word to describe Manchester United's midfield is lacklustre. United seem to be heavily reliant on the slowly ageing Michael Carrick, while most of the other players in the midfield department seem to be ineffective.
Paul Pogba would be the perfect fit in United's faltering midfield. Having left the Red Devils on sour terms, he has blossomed into one of the best young central midfielders in Europe. He has pretty much cemented his place in a Juventus midfield which consists of heavyweights like Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal.
His style of play seems brilliantly suited to Manchester United's. He is direct in his play and is not afraid to take the long range shot and hit with deadly accuracy. A few glimpses of his playing style would lead United fans to reminisce about midfield maestro Paul Scholes. Selling him was a huge mistake and Manchester United should pull out all the stops to re-sign him.
David Moyes has tried to use Phil Jones in the midfield area. He seems perfect to do the 'dirty work' of tackling and tracking back, but he does not possess the passing and creative abilities of a midfielder.
Tom Cleverley can play the role well, but he can not dictate the pace of the game. Pogba, meanwhile, could become one of the best midfielders in European football. He has impressed so much that at the tender age of 20, he has already represented France seven times, even scoring a goal.
Manchester United could solve all their midfield woes if they re-sign Paul Pogba and would be a formidable force in the Premier League. He looks like a talent which is here to stay and he will continue to dazzle the world with his performances. He would compliment Carrick brilliantly and add much needed stability to the United midfield.
