“When you’re a big club you always have a chance and when you have friends of the player around the national team there is a way of selling the club,” Yorke told 888sport.

“I’m sure it helps to have Pogba in there and that might be a turning point in making things happen and getting the deal done.

“Hopefully that will be the case. Greizmann has been in Spain for a long time while United are looking to improve.”

Yorke believes United need a number of signings to cut the gap on Premier League champions Manchester City, who finished last season 19 points on their local rivals.

He added: “Every team each year looks to improve themselves by ten per cent but City have set the benchmark and now it’s down to United to respond to that.

“That’s what we’ll see this summer and the same goes for Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham as they look to close the gap.

“A lot of work needs to be done. But I don’t believe that City are 19 points better than United.”
