Paul Ince has endorsed the possible signing of Paul Pogba at Manchester United.
Man United have reportedly opened talks with Mina Raiola over the signing of the 23-year-old and with many claiming he has what it takes to be the very best, Ince believes a move to the Premier League would suit him better than a switch to the La Liga.
Ince, who played at Old Trafford in central midfield from 1989 until 1995, says he doesn’t know who will play alongside Pogba in United’s midfield but that his signature would send out a message of intent to all potential challenger for domestic honours next year.
“I think his style of football will suit the Premier League more than the Spanish league,” Ince told Sky Sports.
“So Pogba now coming into a league where it is tough, where he can show what he’s all about, I think is a perfect fit for him and for Man United.
“Who he plays alongside, whether it’s (Michael) Carrick, (Morgan) Schneiderlin or (Bastian) Schweinsteiger — I don’t know.
“But if United can get Pogba, then that sends out the signal that we are really going for it this year.”
Pogba is full of energy and attacking intent with a willingness to get physical which would suit the attritional nature of the Premier League.
Possibly the most similar league to England’s Premier League is Italy’s Serie A and the Frenchman has dominated with Juventus for the last number of years. He has won domestic league title’s for four consecutive years, starting in 2012 when he left Manchester for Turin.
