20. Paul Pogba (NA) Premier League Appearances -80 (7) Overall Appearances - 117 (15) Premier League Goals - 22 Overall Goals - 29 Position - Midfielder On the 5th August 2011 Manchester United were preparing to say goodbye to veteran midfielder Paul Scholes who had chosen to retire at the end of the previous season. The club had organised a testimonial game against New York Cosmos to see off the legendary United player. After scoring a fantastic goal, Scholes was subbed in the 75th minute. His replacement was the teenager Paul Pogba. Seen as the heir apparent to Paul Scholes ; Pogba had been itching for the chance to make his mark at Manchester United. Unfortunately it didn't quite work out. Throughout the rest of the 2011/2012 season, Pogba only took part in seven football games, with his minutes in important games limited. His lack of game time and a contractual dispute with Alex Ferguson meant that United's midfield prodigy left Old Trafford to play in Italy. He would stay for four years in Italy, helping Juventus lift four league titles. But after spending most of his formative footballing years away from the club, Pogba returned at the start of the 2016/2017 season, becoming the most expensive footballer in history. Pogba would continue his hunt for trophies in his first season at United, helping United secure the League Cup and then scoring in the Europa League final against Ajax. The following year saw Pogba questioned by parts of the media. He had not adapted as well as many United fans had hoped, especially after the large outlay on the player. Pundits on television started to question Pogba's discipline. The midfielder helped quash these claims with a stand out performance against eventual league winners Manchester City at the Etihad. Pogba produced a man of the match display to ensure City did not have the chance to lift the trophy against Manchester United. Nevertheless, many speculated that the midfielder would not be a long term success at United. This season has stopped any of those rumours. Pogba has had a resurgence under the newly appointed Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has shown the form that helps explain the high transfer fee. He has currently scored fourteen goals this season, smashing his previous records for the club. At his best Pogba is lightning quick, impossible to tackle and possesses a majestic passing range. It has been a bumpy journey, but Pogba is quickly establishing himself as an Old Trafford legend.
