David de Gea and Paul Pogba are getting to know each other during training at Manchester United this week ahead of our Premier League curtain raiser against Bournemouth.

In an alternate reality the duo would be all smiles alongside each other in Real Madrid colours but Man United have done some fantastic business in the last couple of seasons, in both keeping De Gea and bringing Pogba home.

We’ve been criticised as a club for not having that many world class players in the last few years but Jose Mourinho has established arguably our best squad since the 2007/8 double winning season, and pictures like this are enough to rub their hands together.

De Gea in between the sticks, Smalling in defence, Pogba in midfield and Ibrahimovic up front? That’s one hell of a squad and excitement is really starting to build for the season to get underway.

United have drafted into obscurity since Sir Alex Ferguson retired but under Mourinho we have everything we need to get right back to the top where we belong.
