The two young talents come face to face with each other
The two young talents come face to face with each other

Back to 2015, if anyone would talk about the top 5 best upcoming midfielders, there is no doubt Paul Pogba and Marco Verratti would be in the list.

It is 2018 and even if Pogba and Verratti aren't at their magical best, both of them are the talisman of their own teams. Pogba being the ideal modern generation box-to-box midfielder, and Verratti being the perfect playmaker for his Parisian team-mates.

Not just about these two midfield icons, it would also be a battle of the philosophies the clubs carry currently, with a non-firing United taking on an attack-minded PSG. On current form, this looks a non-contest, but with Mourinho, in the dugout, anything is possible (especially after their win in Turin).

It would be interesting to see who prevails over another - the Frenchman or the Italian.
