Three midfield signings that would help unlock Paul Pogba

It’s no secret that Manchester United will be active in the transfer window this summer, as Jose Mourinho is desperate to catch up with their blue neighbours.

There has been plenty of talk this season about “unlocking” Paul Pogba and while some would argue a former world-record signing shouldn’t need much help, there is certainly a need for one more top-class midfielder at Old Trafford.

Nemanja Matic has strengthened the United spine since his arrival from Chelsea last summer, but they are still lacking someone to be the link between Pogba and the Serbian.

Ander Herrera was voted fans’ player of the year last season, but is far from a top-class midfielder, while Scott McTominay is unlikely to continue playing week in week out next season.

If Mourinho is to kick on and help United catch their now superior rivals, they must sign another central midfielder this summer who helps unleash Pogba while bringing something new to the team. Here’s three possible candidates.
