It is generally agreed that Manchester United made a couple of howling errors in allowing Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison to leave the club. With such big holes in their current midfield, and a total lack of dynamism emanating from the engine room, these two could and should have represented the bright new dawn of Manchester United’s next generation.
Now Paul Pogba is a leading light for Juventus and although he may be available for transfer it would cost Manchester United in excess of £20m to bring the player back to the club. Even though he’s a really excellent player, this wouldn’t appear to be the most astute piece of business that Manchester United could conduct this winter.
But the case of Morrison is more intriguing. Earlier in the week The Telegraph reported on how West Ham may sacrifice the brilliant youngster in order to strengthen in other areas.
it is understood that the 20-year-old midfielder, who has 18 months left on his current contract, can go if an acceptable bid is tabled.
West Ham have already received enquiries over Morrison.
The player’s current deal is complicated and West Ham would like to renegotiate it if he does stay.
Manchester United could expect to re-sign the player for between £10-15m and SkyBet have them as favourites for his signature in January. At odds of 5/1 Manchester United remain ahead of Liverpool in he betting for his signature. With doubts largely dispelled about the player’s temperament he has come on in leaps and bounds since he left Manchester United and has even been suggested as an outside bet to make the plane for Brazil 2014.
Let’s remind ourselves of his talent. Manchester United fans would you like to see Morrison back at Old Trafford?
