Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been the center of talks at Old Trafford as the controversial number 6 may finally be on his way out. The player’s agents, staff, and family members have all hinted at him leaving very soon. The former Juventus midfielder has time on his contract left as his deal with the Red Devils isn’t over until 2022. However, his agent Mino Raiola has stated in the past that his departure in the summer is guaranteed.
Pogba was signed by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United with a record sum of 89 million in the 2016/17 season. However, for all that money the number 6 did not exactly live up to his hype. He mostly spent his United career by producing average statistics every season. The player has even failed to win the Premier League in all of his five years. While his opponent competitors such as Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne or Liverpool‘s Jordan Henderson played major parts in helping their side win trophies.
The French international has been doing pretty well this season. Pogba did not exactly have a wonderful spell at Old Trafford with so many injuries and off form patches but we did witness sparks of his brilliance and what he is potentially capable of providing. He’s produced multiple gorgeous moments but they were mostly overshadowed by his lack of consistency and halfhearted performances on the pitch.
As of now, the player has been doing well for United this season. Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has stated that the player is now happy at Manchester United and as coach, he is not bothered about the speculations that are currently surrounding the player. Pogba is heavily linked with a potential exit in the summer but as of now he looks happy and settled at the club. His performances have been stable this season as he has been preferred over new signing Donny van de Beek who was signed for 45 million pounds. This situation can potentially be a turn around for the Frenchman into staying at the club after all. Manchester United currently sit in second place in the Premier League table.
