When Manchester United made the move to bring Paul Pogba back ‘home’, everyone thought this was the start of something special.
Since then, it is fair to say the Frenchman has struggled to fully adapt and adjust to life under Jose Mourinho, so-much-so that, the pair enjoy a civil working relationship at best.
However, according to ESPN, the Red Devils have no intention of selling the 25-year-old back to Juventus, despite a growing interest from the Turin club…
Over the last couple of games, Pogba has had to settle for a spot on the bench, and last time out against Fulham, he didn’t even manage to get himself out on the field. No doubt all this’ll do is frustrate him further.
At this point, I’ve no problem with him sitting out for a while as the performances recently just haven’t been good enough. Perhaps this will reignite that fire in his belly and give him something to strive for. Either he’ll come out swinging with a point to prove, or continue to kick up a fuss.
I’ve always maintained the mantra that Pogba is probably the most marketable player in the modern-day game. There is absolutely no way that Edward Woodward allows him to leave because he knows that he’s a money-maker.
If it comes down to a one-on-one battle between Pogba and Mourinho, I know who I think the club will back… If I had my way, though, both would be out the door.
