ALEX FERGUSON HAD many successes in the transfer market during his 27-year spell at Old Trafford, showing a particularly ruthless streak that usually saw him discard key men at just the right time.

However, Ferguson made mistakes too. Eric Djemba Djemba and Kleberson are two midfielders who didn’t work out but his decision to allow Paul Pogba to join Juventus could have been his most costly.

Louis van Gaal would love to have the authoratitve Frenchman in the centre of his midfield and former United legend Roy Keane thinks Pogba should be at the top of Man United’s wishlist.

“I think that United should sign Paul Pogba for they need a presence and physical player in midfield,” Roy Keane said at a fundraiser for Waterford United in comments reported by the Liverpool Echo.

“Pogba knows the league, is big and strong and is playing brilliantly for Juventus. People say United can’t get Pogba but they should try.”

Pogba has a been rumoured target of both United and Spanish giants Real Madrid and it will be interesting to monitor his playing situation as the summer transfer window nears.

On a somewhat bleak side-note, Eric Djemba-Djemba now plays for Persebaya Surabaya in Indonesia while Kleberson lines out for Indy Eleven in the North American Soccer League.
