POGBA THE PLAYMAKER! Paul Pogba as a No 10′ at Manchester United alongside Bruno Fernandes in a new-look midfield.

Football is fast approaching, and with it the increased rumors about how Ole is expected to pair Bruno and Pogba in a new look midfield. Word has it that Pogba will be deployed as the more attacking of the two players, with Bruno to be utilized a deeper-lying midfielder pulling the strings.

This makes sense given that while both players are astute attackers and playmakers, Bruno is a more tenacious defender with a higher work rate on that side of the pitch. Also, Pogba is probably better suited higher up and in the box given his physicality and strength on the ball.

While there is certain to be quite a bit of squad rotation in the months ahead, it’s exciting to hear that the defacto starting XI for the restart of the season is beginning to take shape. Now who do you start in the midfield three alongside Bruno?

It’s good to have options, and for the first time since I can remember United have them all over the pitch.

Let’s stay healthy and remind the Premier League what Manchester United is all about.

About Alex 50 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
