For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the pressure at Manchester United continues to grow.
After a simply scintillating start things have gone downhill rather quickly. That has left the Red Devils right in the thick of it in regards to battling it out for a top-four finish. Now, the effects of that are already being talked about by the media..
If United do miss out on the top four, thus failing to secure Champions League football, three key superstars will consider their futures at Old Trafford. That’s according to the usually reliable Guardian.
Jamie Jackson is not often wrong in regards to United stories, and he names Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and David de Gea as the three who could look to leave if the club don’t achieve Champions League football for the 2019/20 campaign.
It goes without saying that all the best players want to play in the biggest competitions. If United cannot offer them that, they’re well within their rights to at least think about an exit.
De Gea is yet to sign a new long-term deal at the club and that in itself sets off the alarm bells. He’s already considering his position at United or else he’d have put pen to paper.
As for Pogba and Lukaku, the pair have massively underperformed this year but the ball isn’t in their court. Both are under contract and the power is with the club for the time being… I’d be surprised if either,, particularly the latter left this summer…
