An injury to former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba could have ruined Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of signing one of his teammates, reports suggest. 

As per The Daily Mail, Spurs were interested in Juventus’ £34 million-rated midfielder Weston McKennie, but Pogba’s latest knee injury may mean that the Italian side choose to keep hold of him.

McKennie was limited to just 15 Serie A starts last term and looked set to spend another season as a fringe player for Juventus, but Pogba’s injury could now mean that the American is given more playing time.

McKennie is a target for Spurs

Spurs’ managing director of football Fabio Paratici was working at Juventus when they signed McKennie from Schalke, and he has turned out to be one of the best signings he made during his time at the club.

The 23-year-old is highly-rated in Turin but the Italian side are aware of how much his value has increased and may have been tempted to sell for the right price prior to Pogba’s injury.

They are now likely to keep the US international at the club to act as cover until Pogba returns from injury.
