Fulham With Hope to Re-sign Former Manchester United Star – Identifying Summer Targets as the Alternative
Fulham is reportedly looking to bring in former Manchester United star Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window, as a replacement for their recently-departed Ryan Sessegnon. The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent months, and the Cottagers are believed to be keen to secure his services.
The West London club have been handed a major fillip in their attempts, after the French international admitted his admiration for the London based club. “I always follow Fulham,” Pogba said, speaking after United’s win over Crystal Palace. “They are an ambitious and exciting young team which I’m very impressed with.”
Target Musim Panas
Fulham are currently preparing to identify alternative targets should the Pogba deal fall through. Club officials are expected to have a meeting this week to discuss their move for the Manchester United star and the potential alternatives.
Amongst the potential targets is believed to be Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos, who could be available for a fraction of the price that Pogba would command. Other targets include Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld.

Fulham have a fighting chance of prising away Pogba from United, with the Frenchman believed to be keen on a return to one of his former clubs. With the potential of landing the midfielder at a discounted price, the Cottagers have identified this as an opportunity to strengthen their midfield.
The West Londoners have been very active in the transfer window, making a stunning nine signings in January alone. They have also been linked with a number of high-profile players, most notably from the Premier League, but their efforts so far have been to no avail.
Fulham’s plans for the summer window are the topic of eagerly awaiting speculation from supporters, with the club’s ambitions seemingly set on pushing into the upper echelons of the English top-flight. If they can land Pogba, then they would make a huge statement as to their long-term ambitions.
What is clear is that Fulham are looking to bolster their squad and add quality to their squad, both in the summer and in the coming years. It remains to be seen if they can succeed in their efforts to sign the United star, but they are certainly keeping a close eye on potential targets should they be unsuccessful.
