‘The £50m gamble United must take’
United are two steps closer to recapturing the Premier League trophy for the first time in almost a decade.
It’s been eight long years since the big one last came back to Old Trafford; a triumph which marked the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
There is a sense of irony here, too, or at the very least déjà vu.
Indeed, only 12 months prior to that title victory in 2013, the legendary United manager faced a tough decision on a player tipped to become one of his stars.
That, of course, was a certain Paul Pogba.
Fast forward eight years and Ferguson’s eventual successor, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has been presented with an identical scenario this summer.
