Man Utd Considering Eriksen And Tielemans As Possible Replacements For Pogba by ogbiwa: 7:50am On Jun 10
Manchester United have begun drawing up a list of potential replacements for Paul Pogba - despite being adamant the Frenchman will not leave this summer.

Ed Woodward is determined to reject any bid for the club’s record signing and is under no pressure to sell, with Pogba still having two years to run on his contract - and the option of a further 12 months.

But the 26-year-old is eager to leave Old Trafford and has publicly stated his desire to join Real Madrid.

Claims arising this week that controversial agent Mino Raiola, who represents Pogba, will have his ban on negotiating deals suspended, would remove one barrier to Pogba’s exit this summer.

While Woodward remains confident the player will be part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s revolution, he has begun identifying possible alternatives should Real succeed in their bid to lure him to the Bernabeu.

Christian Eriksen is seen as a top class replacement, with United’s interest known before the Tottenham playmaker confirmed this week, he would like to “try something new.”

A move for Belgium international Youri Tielemans has also been sounded out after Solskjær was impressed by his impact while on loan at Leicester from Monaco last season.

The preferred option is to keep hold of Pogba, with Solskjær prepared to build his team around the World Cup winner.

United’s manager wants to bring in two more midfielders this summer to provide the £89m man with the platform to truly realise his potential.

Solskjær is also considering handing him the captain’s armband, following the departure of Antonio Valencia.

But much could depend on Pogba’s determination to link up with his countryman and idol Zinedine Zidane at Real.

Even then, it would also take a bid in the region of £130m for United’s resolve to be tested.

And Real’s ongoing interest in Eriksen may be evidence they doubt they will be able to convince United to sell.

United expressed interest in Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic amid concerns they’d lose Pogba last summer - but that has since cooled.

It’s also believed the player has little desire to move to England.

They are also big admirers of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, along with Spurs, who may beat them to his signature.

Nice. People will say Eriksen moving from Spurs to United would be a step down. The irony is that some years ago it will be considered a dream move for him. Tells you something about the direction both clubs are moving in recent times.

Pogba is so good but he reminds me of the saying "Talent is not enough" and "A bad attitude is like a flat tire. No matter how beautiful the car is, you can never go far"

United seem quite serious this transfer window. They are on the verge of signing James and Wan Bissaka...also bidding for Dias or Koulibaly, they are also interested in Maddison and Tielemans. They won't get Eriksen for sure...but at least they're doing things.

Eriksen is the playmaker Liverpool needs to compliment their front three.

But he doesn't fit into Jurgen Klopp end-to-end pressing style of play.

A midfield trio of Eriksen, Fabinho and Adrien Rabiot will give Liverpool the title.

Sell everyone of those damn idiots that think they're greater than the club. The only thing that comes to their mind is when the next wage alert comes in. F**king bunch of overpaid, overhyped mediocre idiots.

The creativity Liverpool lacks in the midfield they made up for it with two creative full backs.

Sure, but it would be foolish for Klopp to fully depend on them next season. Let's not rule out possible injuries.

Since Coutinho left, there haven't be that spark in the middle of the park. I was expecting someone like Jamès Rodriguez to be the replacement tho.

In truth, Pogba without doubt is the most talented midfielder in the English Premier League but hasn't lived up to expectations since signing for Manutd.

Although, Manchester united as a team is poor so to say, which gives few opportunity for individual brilliance. We have seen glimpse of how brilliant the young man is when on the ball.

I believe if the structure of Manchester united focuses on this young man, they will go far and improve as a club.

Notwithstanding, Paul Pogba needs to look up to Cristiano Ronaldo for inspiration, CR7 combines talent, hard work, pride and ambition exceptionally.

klopp needs someone that can play his way. You might bring James Rodriguez but wouldn't fit into klopp system. Liverpool midfield has keita, fabinho, oxlade, wijnaldum, Henderson, Shaqiri, lallana, milner....individually this midfielders are not world class but very successful in klopp system. Sometimes it depends on who can play to the instructions of the coach. Though Liverpool need just one dynamic midfielder that can play forward and a cover for left back this season only
