Paul Pogba will leave Man United this summer, the club have confirmed.
It has been a mixed six years for Paul Pogba at Man United, but the World Cup winner will depart from Old Trafford this summer, the club have announced.
To us fans, it always looked like it was trending this way, particularly as Pogba barely played for the club this summer. For me, there was a genuine feeling that the Frenchman had given up on United and the decision was already made.
That’s despite the fact the media couldn’t stop themselves from claiming that there was still a possibility Pogba would stay.
Honestly, I’m glad. You come here to read a fan point of view on the situation and I’ve watched every single game Pogba has played.
In my opinion, there has been far more bad than good from Pogba. Far too many times has he meandered around the field without a care in the world, nonchalantly displaying a lack of effort and intensity.
That’s not to say Pogba is a bad player. Far from it. We’ve seen it first-hand how deadly he can be when in full flight. Sadly, it hasn’t happened anywhere near often enough – and he’s not the only one to blame.
The club also have to be held culpable. Pogba’s had to deal with a constant change in manager, change in system and change in players around him. Yes, he could have done more, but United could have created a better environment in which he operates.
It’s also worth pointing out that I don’t see the clubs beating down the door to sign Pogba. PSG have pulled out of the race, meaning Juventus or Real Madrid look like the most possible options for the Frenchman. He’ll no doubt have to take a considerable pay cut, mind.
Wherever Pogba ends up, I believe he’ll enjoy success. But that doesn’t mean United have made the wrong decision to let him leave.
With that, we want to end on a positive note, by wishing Pogba the best of luck wherever he chooses to play his football next year.
