Manchester United linked with Aston Villa midfielder
Paul Pogba’s future with Manchester United is uncertain at the moment despite a successful 2020/21 campaign. The Frenchman’s contract is set to expire in the summer of 2022, meaning he will be a free agent next summer if he does not sign an extension with the club.
The Red Devils are believed to want Pogba to stay at Old Trafford. But there is a very real possibility that he could leave the club soon.
Juventus have been linked with a midfielder decision. And while Pogba may not have had an incredible career at Old Trafford so far, his departure would leave a huge void in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
Donny van de Beek could be the man to step in, in case the Frenchman leaves. But even then, the club would still have to sign a midfielder in such a scenario.

Manchester United linked to John McGinn
As reported by Athleticism (Going through Star of the day), John McGinn has become a potential transfer target for Manchester United this summer. Darren Fletcher is believed to be a huge fan of the Aston Villa star despite not being at the top of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wishlist.
Having scored 3 goals and 6 assists in 37 appearances last season, according to statistics from Transfer market, the 26-year-old midfielder has proven to be an integral part of Dean Smith’s squad.
His contract with Aston Villa runs until the summer of 2025, meaning the club will not be under any pressure or rush to part ways with the Scotland international.
There is no doubt that McGinn is a brilliant midfielder and he has already shown his quality in the Premier League. While Jack Grealish might make most of the headlines, McGinn also deserves a lot of credit for Aston Villa’s strong performance this season. And signing him could prove to be a shrewd move on Manchester United’s part.
