Manchester United can go for the title if they manage to complete the signing of Juventus star Paul Pogba, according to the former Red Devils and Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince. The France international has long been a target for the Old Trafford club as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad for the 2016/17 campaign.
The Portuguese tactician has already helped the 20-time English champions in signing defender Eric Bailly, Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund. The United manager admitted that he is looking to complete four "specialist" signings in the summer transfer window.
According to Sky Sports, the Premier League giants are in talks with Juventus over the transfer of Pogba to Old Trafford. United are ready to pay a world-record fee of £100m ($129.5m) in re-signing the 23-year-old and are willing to pay him a weekly wage of £300,000. Ince believes the Premier League will suit Pogba and his addition will bolster United's squad for the upcoming season.
"Sir Alex Ferguson would have been disappointed to have lost him at such a young age. But I think his style of football will suit the Premier League more than the Spanish league," Ince told Sky Sports.
"I remember when I first went to Inter Milan in Serie A and I was that kind of aggressive player and every time I made a tackle I was getting booked, that was frustrating.
"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 part of the France squad at the European championship in his homeland. His side beat Germany 2-0 in the second semi-final and that win has seen them book a place in the Euro 2016 final, where they will take on Portugal on 10 July.
