5 players who could replace Paul Pogba if he leaves Manchester United
- These players are the best possible replacements for Paul Pogba.
#3 Ivan Rakitic
The Croat star is an asset to any team, and is one of the most valuable midfielders in the world. However, he is often underrated and doesn't get the credit he deserves.
Mourinho made it clear in the summer that for Pogba to go to Barcelona, they must give Rakitic along with some cash. Apparently, the former Inter Milan tactician is a huge admirer of Rakitic.
He offers a lot of services on the plate, and United wouldn't mind losing Pogba to Barcelona if Rakitic is involved in the deal. He has been linked with a move away, and his style of play could suit the Premier League. Recently, he scored a stunner against Tottenham in the Champions League, and has been in decent form.
The former Sevilla skipper has scored a couple of goals this season, and assisted some number of goals as well. He is facing stiff competition for his place in the team from the likes of Arthur and Arturo Vidal. Even a slight dip in form could see him lose his place, and as a result, he might be open to a transfer.
