Roy Keane wants Manchester United to sign Paul Pogba and Seamus Coleman

Roy Keane believes Manchester United should sign Seamus Coleman and Paul Pogba in order to turn their fortunes around.

Ex-Man United boss David Moyes was linked with a move for Everton’s Coleman last season but a move for the right-back never materialised.

Pogba left United on a free transfer to join Juventus in 2012 and has since gone on to become one of the world’s best midfielders, much to the dismay of United fans.

Speaking at a charity event in Waterford, Keane feels United should go for both players despite the battle they would face to secure their signatures.

When asked about who United should buy in the summer, Keane said: ”I think United need a centre half and midfielder and Seamus Coleman for right back.

“And I think that United should sign Paul Pogba for they need a presence and physical player in midfield.

“Pogba knows the league, is big and strong and is playing brilliantly for Juventus. People say United can’t get Pogba but they should try.”

Coleman enjoyed a fine season last term but Everton’s poor form in this campaign has seen his performances suffer. If United were to qualify for the Champions League next year, it would put them in a good position should they want the Irishman.

Meanwhile, Pogba has seemingly had mixed feelings about United since leaving the club. On the one hand, he has criticised Sir Alex Ferguson for not playing him enough during his time there. On the other, he has recently stated that he still loves the club. A hefty transfer fee would be needed in order to bring him back to Old Trafford.
