ATKMB won Group D of the AFC Cup but needed to shore up their defence after allowing six goals in three games. The Guinea international midfielder has previously played for MLS club Atlanta United FC and Ligue 1 club Saint-Etienne. He made 35 appearances for FC Sochaux last season and has extensive European experience.
Paul Pogba has had a rough time at Manchester United, with many questioning the £89 million cost paid by the Red Devils to Juventus in 2016. The Frenchman exits Old Trafford with 29 goals and 51 assists in 233 games.
Rio Ferdinand, a Manchester United legend, believes the French midfielder had left the club in worse shape than when he arrived.
“I do believe if Paul had a better team around him, a better chance, and better players, you look at that whole team and he has been the scapegoat for a lot of players.” Rio Ferdinand said.
