Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has revealed he would have never attempted to re-sign Paul Pogba for £100-million had he been Manchester United boss.
The Juventus midfielder has been the Red Devils’ top transfer target but Redknapp believes Spurs star Dele Alli would make for a better signing.
Pogba left United on a free transfer having been one of the club’s star youth players, before going to become a phenomenal midfielder since his departure.
‘If I was the owners of Manchester United, I’d be very aggrieved in that we actually let him go on a free transfer and we’ve now got to pay £100 million to get him back,’ Redknapp told Football365.
‘I don’t think I’d like that, I think my pride would stop me from paying a player 100 million when we gave him away.’
Redknapp then insisted Dele Alli would be his own priority signing.
‘He’s a great player, there’s no doubt about that, but I wouldn’t swap him for Dele Alli. If you asked me, Dele Alli or Pogba who do you want? I’m taking Dele Alli in the long term.’
