Manchester United will not be parting ways with Paul Pogba in January.
That’s according to the Daily Mail, who says that the 25-year-old has been told that he will remain a Red Devil beyond the winter transfer window.
Pogba and Jose Mourinho have been embroiled in a huge player vs manager row over the last few weeks, which seemingly came to the fore following the self-proclaimed Special One’s decision to strip the Frenchman of the vice-captaincy.
From that point forward, things have been massively downhill for the club, aside from an excellent fight-back at home to Newcastle United last week.
United were never going to let Pogba leave in January. Replacing him, in the mid-season window, would have been immensely tough. In that window the big-name players rarely become available, so it’d probably mean the Red Devils would be a man light right the way through to the summer.
With three years left on his current deal, the ball is firmly in the club’s court. They are under no pressure whatsoever to sell. Why would they part with their prized asset if they don’t have to? The amount of revenue he generates is insane – whether or not he is performing on the pitch, he is seen as Edward Woodward’s cash-cow.
