Man United fans are discussing what Paul Pogba could have been with Casemiro alongside him

Manchester United fans are left wondering what Paul Pogba could have been like with Casemiro alongside him in midfield after his long-awaited second appearance for Juventus.

Pogba made his comeback from a major knee injury in his team’s 4-2 win over Torino on Tuesday.

And he made an immediate impact for the Serie A giants, as it only took him a few minutes to show fans and critics what they had been missing.

Many on social media praised the 29-year-old for his outstanding performance in his 21-minute cameo. He even had Manchester United supporters talking.

They were talking about what a Pogba-Casemiro midfield could have looked like, given how well the Brazilian has started his Old Trafford career.

“Pogba next to Casemiro and under Ten Hag would easily become the best midfielder in our history,” one Twitter user said.

“Hot take but we’d be top of the Premier League if we’d had a completely fit Paul Pogba for this season, he and Casemiro combined would’ve actually been the best pivot in history,” another said on Twitter.

A third was added: “In a perfect world, imagine Casemiro and Pogba sharing a midfield. Bruno and the rest of the front line are in front of them. Oh my goodness. What might have been.”

“FFS man a Pogba Casemiro pivot it was so over for the league,” a fourth lamented.

“Can’t help but wonder how a midfield of Casemiro, Pogba, and Bruno would cook under Ten Hag,” said another.

Except for the one season in his second stay at Manchester United, where he scored 16 goals in all competitions in the 2018/19 season, Pogba has mainly underperformed.

Yet if he was still at the club and playing alongside Casemiro, things might have turned out differently.

The former Real Madrid man, who joined the club last summer in a deal for up to £70 million, has been a revelation and helped his team win their first trophy since 2017, beating Newcastle United 2-0 in the Carabao Cup last weekend.
