Ferdinand: Man Utd spending €120M on Pogba can be justified…

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand is backing their move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Ferdinand was close to the Frenchman when he was playing for United’s youth team.

“I believe that 120 million euros is a lot of money, for any player. You’d expect more than 40 goals a season for that figure,” he stated.

“But Pogba will be the best midfielder in the world in the next two years. He’s a leader, and will become an even stronger leader. It could be the beginning of a new generation of football at Manchester United, given this opportunity.

“Manchester United has a strong attack, midfield and defence but they need reinforcements.”
