    Ole disagreed funnily enough. I'm with Ole without Pogba our attacks just wouldn't if happened. His out ball was very good.

    Also he ran more than he has ever run that game so......

    And there it is. He has the biggest club in the world under his thumb, there isn't a chance in hell he's leaving

    Like I said, it’s just my opinion. Ole’s comments are, I believe, not really telling the whole truth, they are there to keep him sweet, he must see how poor and unproductive he’s been for several games and all this Madrid bullshit whether fed by Pogba, his agent or Madrid themselves has clearly piqued Ole’s and indeed the boards interest, don’t be surprised to see a new contract offer very soon yet at a time when I feel he doesn’t really deserve it.

    He’s got 3 years or something like that left on his contract, get your fecking head down and earn it, don’t just look at the club as a wounded animal to take advantage of and as for this “running” stat that gets wheeled out these days doesn’t really say much to me, you should be fecking running about on a football pitch, surely it’s what you do and the positions you take up at the end of them that counts.

    I don’t dislike Pogba, far from it but I think sometimes he believes his own hype and in professional football that can be a dangerous thing, not just for the individuals career but for a teams performance in general, you can’t rest on your laurels for one minute, especially at a club like United because it won’t go unnoticed.

    But like I said just my opinion and just the way I saw it on Wednesday night.

    Really happy with this if true. If United want to become great again, they need to convince top players that there future lies here in a team surrounded by other top talents and that the club can fulfil their ambition. Get both Pogs and Dave signed up as leaders of Ole’s reign and others will want to follow. Both can still improve, but they are without a doubt the two players in our squad that are in the discussion for being world class.

    I was not talking about Mourinho and Manchester United. And whether or not he is finished is a different story. I wish him luck on that. If he bungles his career, he will have only himself to blame.

    I meant Mourinho and Pogba with my focus being on Pogba. People here believed the drama around him was instigated and sustained by Mourinho. Well, apparently, after Mourinho left, not much has changed. There are still rumours of his departure, he is still making controversial comments to the press and most importantly, he is still being inconsistent in his play.

    We all know how good he can be. He showed that for several weeks after Jose left. That's the Paul Pogba we want to see week in, week out. Right now the news and rumours around him and his inconsistency are getting really tiring.

    He wants a bumper deal and this is the way to squeeze out the absolute max from a frankly desperate United board.

    We cannot afford to lose our one top outfield player. The only star quality player we have.

    We seem to find it very difficult to sign top players. I think every club will in 2019.

    The club know that. I expect him to sign the biggest PL contract ever.

    Even leaving the goal to the side, he’s having a good game so far.

    Fluid and making the right passes. This is what we wanna see if he’s gonna be our talisman.

    I would. There is no chance we could replace him adequatly. People tend to forget quickly that he is by far our best player despite his flaws

    I'll answer that with another question...

    If Pogba were to go to Real does anyone believe he'll do for them what we hoped he'd do for us?

    When we signed Pogba I warned those who would listen at the time he wasn't the player to build a side around, more of a very good cog in the wheel so to speak. 3 years later and not a lot has seemingly changed so if he were to go to Madrid it's my opinion that at the highest level they'd still need better players around him and unless there's a career renaissance from Kroos/Modric that means Madrid signing more midfielders than just Pogba

    Fully expect him to act the goat this summer. It’s a difficult position for the club to be in, however, you suspect that the United move was always the next step before a move to Spain.

    The only player on the market that could in any way replace his output from midfield would be Coutinho.

    Let him leave for 150/170M.

    Then buy Saul Niguez and Ruben Neves for 150 and invest 50 more on Rice. Then we ll have a better midfield trio than what we have currently.

    We will not have CL next season so just get a good fee for him. And hopefully he leaves early June like that we ll have time to replace him

    Hum... hard one. I was of the same opinion as @charlenefan.
    Given the gaps in our team, I don't see the point of keeping a "confidence" player that doesn't want to be here.
    That said, given Raiola is his agent, I'd defo say squeeze'm for every penny possible.

    Must have a high fever, none of those midfielders are better than what we currently have.

    Saul is not even the best midfielder in his position at Atletico Madrid.

    Raiola milking for a new deal. We're going to end up Pogba Messi money at this rate.

    I hope if he has to go, we will buy 2 midfielders before he leaves. If not we will be in Barca's situation when they've sold Neymar. Every club will ask for unreal money for every player we want to sign.

    Pogba is too lazy and inconsistent to be world class.

    Barca chased and then paid for Coutinho. Even agreed to all sorts of ridiculous clauses.

    Terrible purchase by Barsa and Liverpool is all the better for it.

    Pogba would have a horrible time in Madrid. He should really think long and hard about it. The fans there turn on their own faster than at any other big club in Europe. We know how hot and cold his performances are. He'd be foreign, expensive, with a huge salary and replacing a Bernabeu legend like Modric. That's a recipe for disaster for him if you ask me.

    Absolutely, the amount of players he isnt even fit to lace the boots of that have been booed there. If he played with the consistency he does here, he wouldnt last two years at Madrid

    Genuinely think Pogba wants out. It’s really a shame but I think we should let him go while he’s still in demand.

    When we signed him there were lots of posts saying they'd be happy to get 3 years out of him and sell him on. It was called a win win especially with how he was playing at the time for Juve.

    3 years is almost up and it's not quite worked out. Jose mistakenly tried to mold him into an all encompassing midfielder, the project Pogba was sold on went pear shaped.

    We never got enough players in of his talent level. His friends Lingard and Lukaku actually become a problem as they're not good enough, nor Rashford right now. Pogba is still setting up these guys but they can't finish or play the ball back, he's a luxury creator.

    The best link up I've seen was Ibra and Pogba, two top talented players. It stood out by a mile. I think he'd do great elsewhere but could go tits up if they don't get a strong team around him which I'm sure they will do.

    No need for crystal ball to figure that Pogba's future is going to be a "could have been..." player.

    Unfortunately, I can't see Pogba being here for much longer. He's hitting his peak years now and I can't see him waiting around for us to rebuild, which will take around three years. With Madrid sniffing around, he'll probably end up there, especially now that Zidane has gone back. That, and they need somewhat of a rebuild too.

    Bought him for 90M and if we sell within the next year or so, we'll make a profit. In this day and age, I can imagine he'll be priced at about 150M.

    If we do sell him, we need to sign a top class replacement.

    Can't be that hard to replace him, he only turns up 1 in 5 games. He's a fecking passenger.
