Arsenal legend says United should sign Ramsey in exchange for Pogba

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour believes Manchester United should look at the possibility of signing midfielder Aaron Ramsey from Juventus, should they want to land Paul Pogba in the summer. Pogba has been constantly linked with a move away from Old Trafford and his agent Mino Raiola has publicly stated that the Frenchman would prefer a fresh challenge away from the Premier League.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Parlour suggested that Ramsey could part ways with Juventus after just one season, considering his fitness concerns and reduced gametime. He added that the Welshman should garner plenty of transfer interest and believes United should seek to land the midfielder as makeweight, should Pogba make the return to Turin.

He told: “Aaron Ramsey could be on his way again after just one year at Juventus – would that be a good swap deal? He’s a super player. They’ll be a lot of clubs interested in him. Could he go to Manchester United? He’s the sort of player they need to score you goals from midfield. He’s a good age, he’s still got three or four good years ahead of him, so he would surely be on Man United’s radar. That could be an interesting move if they could have him as part of the deal. I’m sure Man United fans would be very happy if they got Ramsey for Pogba.”

Pogba is currently out on the sidelines after an ankle surgery and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has recently stated that the midfielder may not return to action for the next few weeks. It was previously indicated that he could return ahead of Manchester derby at Old Trafford in early March but seems unlikely to happen, given United are likely to handle the Frenchman with more caution after a couple of ankle injury setback this season. The Red Devils can jump to the fifth spot on the league table, should they beat Watford at home on Sunday.
