Manchester United fans want Paul Pogba

The Manchester Evening News have revealed that 81% of Manchester United fans want the club to re-sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. 

After Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal admitted that the club would be in the market for a new midfielder in the summer transfer window, MEN conducted a poll to find out which player the club's fans wanted.

Clear winner

Despite the likes of Kevin Strootman, William Carvalho and Arturo Vidal being involved in the poll, the club's former midfielder Pogba picked up a huge 81% of the votes. 

Pogba, of course, left Old Trafford on a free transfer after failing to prove himself under the then Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson. 

However, in recent years, the Frenchman has become one of the leading midfielders in world football, so it's not entirely surprising that United supporters want to see him return to the club. 

It remains uncertain, however, as to whether the Manchester United hierarchy would be prepared to spend big in order to land the midfielder in the summer transfer window. 

Huge interest 

There's no doubt about it, a number of clubs are interested in the Frenchman, with United's Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City reportedly interested in the player's services. 

In fact, it has even been suggested that it will take as much as £75m to land Pogba, so it could prove an interesting summer transfer battle between some of England's biggest clubs. 

However, as well as the likes of City and Co., some of Europe's biggest clubs have also been linked with the player's services. The trio of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain could all enter the race to sign the Frenchman sooner rather than later. 

United should deliver 

It's certainly not surprising that Manchester United fans want Pogba to return to the club. The Frenchman would no doubt slot into the club's midfield with ease, and would help them dominate and control football matches. 

Of course, he won't come cheap, but at just 21-years-old, he has an extraordinary future ahead of him, so would prove a huge coup for the Red Devils as they go in search of long term glory under Louis van Gaal. 

Pogba is certainly the midfielder Manchester United should target; he's worth every penny.
