    This thread will keep getting bumped for the remainder of the season when Pogba scores or assists. Surely it'll get boring

    Liverpool wouldn't swap Pogba for Henderson? That's the best one so far!
    I wouldn't swap him for any of those players.

    There is no way I'd sell him. Not for any price.

    Bit unfair to quote his post from November, after Pogba's good run in December and January :lol:

    That may be the worst post in Caf history looking back, but to be fair things were very bleak then and Jose had a fair few brainwashed. Still have to see him keep up this great form (tbh, I'd call it great productivity rather than amazing performances from Pogba under Ole so far)

    From that list, De Bruyne is the only one who is on Pogba's level (actually, he is better) with Erikson close but not as good. The others though, it is laughable to mention in the same sentence as Pogba, unless the sentence is 'Paul is so much better than those feckers'.

    My favourite post of the summer was “Sell Pogba and get another Slav General in SMS in and Mourinho will have this team dominating”

    Eh? How does your post come into the picture? And no it isn't comparable to the marvel that was.

    Even when Jose was doing okay it was clear he was being unduly harsh with Pogba by shackling him too puch. Every time I watch Pogba play it isclear he is the creative engine of our team and when we need goals he always looks to me like the player who could come up with something. Unfortunately united have lacked a creative midfielder for a long time (and we have done okay without one too) and some fans have no patience left for the room that a creative players needs to thrive because when you go for a great pass some times it won't work.

    For me we should never be selling Pogba unless the player wants to go and even then we should be looking at close to 200M (Coutinho, clearly a lesser player, went for 135M and markets have moved up too). If SAF had today's Pogba in his last 5-6 years we would definitely have not lost the two close titles to Chelsea and City and might have added another CL too. Our team was otherwise great and efficient, only needed a better creative spark which even the great man acknowledged himself (going in for Hazard, having to extend Scholes contract etc.). Unfortunately its not easy to find such players and SAF never found anything within the value he was looking for. But now that we have one, we should definitely and firmly stay put.

    Would take a huge offer before United entertain any offer, his commercial impact is almost more important to them (especially the likes of Woodward) than his performances on the pitch. Maybe £120-£150m.

    Despite Pogba’s much improved performances & appears to be happy, I just get the feeling that he’s the type that if likes of Real or Barca ever get serious about him he’d have his head turned & want to leave

    I don't know where all these legends and myths of pogba's marketing prowess come from. Even De Gea has double his followers on Twitter. Cristiano 12x more.

    Just comes across to me as Pogba's handlers astroturfing here.

    In that same vein, he's got 3x the followers Dave has on IG

    He's 100% one of the most marketable players in the world

    That's true of a whole host of players, especially those of an elite class.

    There's nothing special about Pogba in this regard.

    When I ever I want a laugh I always go and read through some of the earlier comments on this thread. Obviously, the now famous Steerpike's "Lverpool wouldn't swap Hendo for him" :smirk::smirk::smirk:

    I'd argue the contrary, he has massive crossover appeal moreso than most players and is a great promoter.

    I mean he was named the most marketable athlete period last year,ahead of the most established athletes in world sport, and has been in the top 5 since his United move



    It's no coincidence that United club valuation has risen to being the most valuable club in the world regardless of the sport while he's been with us. It was trending upwards already but it never increased at the rate that it has the last 2 years

    Wow.

    I’m so far resisting the urge to bring up some of my posts on the topic to gloat. That one is terrible though.

    Can't put a price on him. With consideration to his age and his all round skills and present form curve he's world no 1 right now.
