If the Manchester United supporters didn’t already, they know now.
However, Old Trafford has not always been kind to its residents, especially since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. Indeed, during this time period, many world-class players have moved to Manchester and failed to make it; for example, Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao and, most recently, Paul Pogba.
In all honesty, the French midfielder has been on a decline in England for some time, but for some reason, he remains in the Premier League. He should have left last summer at the latest, because the longer he remains a United player, the longer he will continue to deteriorate.
According to a new report from Goal, Paul Pogba has opened up about this period of time being the most “difficult” of his career. What he is referring to is his fight for first team football under the Old Trafford lights, which was certainly not helped by the big break endured just a few months ago due to the England lockdown.
As much as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims to try, he isn’t trying hard enough to fit him into the matchday XI. This is fair enough, for the Norwegian is the boss and if he would rather Donny van de Beek and Bruno Fernandes, then this is his prerogative.
As far as Pogba is concerned, though, he needs to be getting game time. He is a 27-year-old World Cup winner and these should be the finest years of his career, but they aren’t. He would improve many sides across Europe, with Real Madrid said to be the most likely destination.
Do you think Manchester United will sell Paul Pogba this January?
