Wenger finding it 'very difficult' to strengthen Arsenal squad during transfer window

17 August, 2016, 00:55 | Author: Lula Armstrong

Wenger said that from a technical point of view he could see why United wanted Pogba: "The value of a player is dependent on his talent, the expected strengthening of the team, his age and of course his resale value". It's hard to believe that he would buy such an expensive player without a plan on how to get the best out of him.

Given the hype and fee surrounding the player, you would expect him to immediately become a mainstay in the Man United first team, but who will join him?

The latest of manager Jose Mourinho's new signings follows defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and mid fielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan into United. You look at the modern-day game, and there aren't many players who can do that and he definitely can.

French superstar Paul Pogba yesterday completed a sensational return to Manchester United from Juventus for a reported world record fee. "They help me to reach another level", he said. If Pogba has chosen Manchester United over Real Madrid for football reasons as well then that is a massive coup, especially knowing that he will miss out on Champions League football for a year because that is a big factor.

While nearly all of the Premier League's top clubs have spent heavily this summer, Arsenal have so far shown restraint in the transfer market - Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka being the only high-profile arrival to the Emirates this summer.

"There was nearly a disbelief that Manchester United had let this player go". At his best, he's a box-to-box midfielder, a player who gets up and down the field and coordinates the attack.

The fee is reportedly a world record and that has apparently beaten off competition from Real Madrid. For all the money that has been spent, we've not been able to keep Grade A players or incentivise them to come here in the first place.

"First of all (we must) win the league for the first time with United because I hadn't won the league when I left", he said. "He is young and will continue to improve; he has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond".
