Manchester United is seemingly an unhappy camp at the moment, as Jose Mourinho third-season syndrome is slowly but surely sinking in.
Paul Pogba has already hinted at the fact he doesn’t know where his future lies. Now the Red Devils have played their hand.
According to the usually reliable ESPN, per The Metro, United have taken the decision to halt contract talks with the superstar midfielder. At this point, they see little value in speaking to Pogba as he’s currently unhappy with life under the self-proclaimed Special One.
With that said, the club aren’t planning on letting Pogba leave any time soon The club hold all the power. The midfielder has a contract until 2022; that’s almost four more seasons.
If we’re being brutally honest, I doubt Mourinho will still be in charge at that point unless something truly miraculous unfolds. In all likelihood, Pogba will outlast his manager – perhaps that may persuade him to rethink his future plans.
There is absolutely no chance that United are going to let their prized asset leave. Pogba is a global superstar in this game. He brings in heaps of revenue single-handedly. From a business standpoint, letting such a pivotal, social media, modern-day superstar leave would be a disaster.
