Manchester United’s end-of-season capitulation has been bitterly disappointing.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a fantastic start to life as Red Devils manager but things have gone downhill pretty quickly. Perhaps the biggest individual disappointment is Paul Pogba. The personal drop-off raises major cause for concern. Now, we may have an idea why…
According to Spanish media outlet AS, Pogba has asked United to sell him to Real Madrid this summer. Furthermore, the mercurial Frenchman has already agreed a £10million-a-year wage with Madrid.
The 26-year-old wants to sort his future out ‘sooner rather than later’ presumably so this saga doesn’t drag on all summer.
Honestly, if the price is right, I’d let Pogba go. He has had a good three-month spell in three years of being here. For a man of his talents, that’s just not good enough.
That’s not to say he isn’t talented, obviously, he’s a brilliant player and no doubt he’d go to Spain and tear up La Liga. Sometimes, situations just don’t work out.
At this point he’s doing more harm than good in that dressing room, dare I use the word ‘virus’ but that’s what it feels like right now. Perhaps being relieved of the pressure he brings is a good thing for this club going forward.
