With another transfer window approaching, the future of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is again up for debate.
The French midfielder could form a devastating partnership with Bruno Fernandes. But only if he remains at Old Trafford and focuses on what he does best.
Questions will remain until Pogba commits his long-term future to United. Which is why Calcio Mercato claims Aaron Ramsey could be an option in a swap-deal for the World Cup winner.
Swap-deals and Pogba have become a common theme in the rumour mill. But United do not need the Welsh international. In fact, he is the opposite of what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be focusing on.
While the injury-prone Ramsey is approaching his 30th birthday, another reported United target is at the other end of his footballing career.
Jude Bellingham is everything Ramsey was in his prime and more. At 16, the midfielder has his entire career ahead of him and could become a United legend. The best Ramsey could hope for is a bit-part role
According to the Sun, United are going all out to bring Bellingham to Old Trafford and rightly so. He is a Red Devil player if ever there was one.
But suggestions United would be open to signing Ramsey should be wide of the mark. If Pogba leaves, Ed Woodward should take the money and nothing else.
There are far better ways to spend it than on the wages of player’s approaching the twilight of their career. Signing Bellingham would be a great start.
