EPL: John Barnes tells Manchester Utd who to sign as Pogba’s replacement
Former Liverpool star, John Barnes, has told Manchester United to sign Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong as Paul Pogba’s replacement should the France international eventually leave Old Trafford.
Barnes believes De Jong would be the perfect replacement for Pogba, who is yet to sign a new contract at Man United.
The Dutch midfielder will be a brilliant signing for Ralf Rangnick’s side.
Recall that Pogba’s contract with Man United will expire next summer.
“Frenkie de Jong would be a brilliant signing for Manchester United,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets.
“It looks like Paul Pogba is on his way out of the club, so bringing in a replacement for him is very important.
“Especially if that person is a young and talented player who will get the opportunity to be one of the main players at the club.
“He [De Jong] has everything in terms of passing range, intensity and a great attitude. It is exactly what Manchester United needs in the midfield.”
Barnes added: “That was their plan with Donny van de Beek, but of course, he has been stifled by other players in his position playing better than him.
“However, bringing De Jong in and putting him straight into the side and being trusted would be good for both Manchester United and him.”
