What does Man Utd do with star midfielder after a completed deal fell through?
It is no secret that Paul Pogba wanted to leave Man Utd this summer. But manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has assured the public that Pogba will continue to remain professional. But is this being shown in his performances?
According to reports, want-away Paul Pogba accepted to a move to PSG just says before deadline day. on a deal worth £429,000 per week. However, the move did not materialise due to Barcelona failing to meet the financial demands for Neymar.
Therefore, Paul Pogba has missed out on a £22million per year salary, Champions League football, trophies and a return to his home country.
I’d be upset about that, wouldn’t you?
What will happen with Paul Pogba this season?
During pre-season press conferences, Solskjaer affirmed the public that Pogba would be a Man Utd player next season. And he is, but he’s a very unhappy one.
It appears to be the same-old with Paul Pogba this season. There are moments of pure brilliance, such has his two assists against Chelsea in the 4-0 victory. However, the majority of his game appears to be lethargic and sloppy. Pogba is still giving the ball away in ridiculous situations.
Pogba is likely to be well aware that he is in his last six to ten months with the Manchester club, as most European giants would welcome the Frenchman regardless of his form at Old Trafford.
Should Pogba be off the pace this season, it would be brutally harmful to their already lacklustre midfield, the weakest part of the squad already. On the flip side, his disappointment may well wear off in the coming weeks.
Should the rest of his team step-up, he will have to follow suit. Should the promises of January transfers come to light and Man Utd storm through the second half of the season. Perhaps that is the only way Pogba would consider remaining at Old Trafford.
