Manchester United are widely expected to accelerate their interest in France midfielder Paul Pogba once Euro 2016 comes to a close this evening.
However, despite readying the reported £100 million it will cost to get Pogba back, ESPN report that United and Jose Mourinho are not finished upgrading their midfield, with PSG man Blaise Matuidi also on the shopping list regardless of whether or not Pogba joins the FA Cup holders.
Having handed Michael Carrick a new one-year contract it is clear some current midfielders at the club will be sweating over their future should United pull off the double French capture of both Pogba and Matuidi.
Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ander Herrera are most at threat with the latter seen more as an attacking midfielder, meaning after just one season at Old Trafford Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger could both become surplus to requirements under Mourinho.
Manchester United have struggled to replace arguably their best ever midfield in Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. Players have come and gone over the years failing to come near the level set before them.
Mourinho will be hoping Matuidi and Pogba can at last fill that void, although it will come at an extraordinary cost.
