Im not worried just disappointed he mentions another club team on international duty. He could have avoided the question by saying something like "Im happy at Manchester, the future in a few years who knows?" Left it vague instead of specific.Typical international duty quotes, and reading them if you get worried by them you're a bit silly. I'd be shocked if he left this summer. Could I see him leaving one day though, yeah for sure, especially if we don't start challenging for the league.
And Pogba should take zero responsibility if we’re playing in the Europa next season? If he’s really as good as he thinks he is, maybe he should start leading us to better things.I'm a bit annoyed but then I remember we are probably going to play Europa League football next season so who can begrudge him? We are not one of the top clubs in the world and have little ambition in getting there.
As someone who's left the UK to live in Spain I can't really blame Pogba for doing the same.He's an Elite level player, approaching his prime - he should aim to be at a club that is challenging for the highest honours. I want that club to be Man Utd, and I would imagine he does too, but the club is run incredibly badly from a footballing point-of-view when compared to every other club of a similar stature and monetary level.
The Glazers are muppets, the managerial appointments are utterly awful, and even if Ole works out, it's still an extremely eccentric appointment for a huge club to make.
I honestly love Ole, he's a legendary Utd player imo, but I don't see him wrestling with Guardiola and Klopp, let alone Europeans Elite as a manager - and I realize this may sound slightly hypocritical after the PSG result, but the truth is we were outplayed completely in the first game, and then had an impressive, but still incredibly fortunate 2nd leg.
We've still won more trophies during recent years than the likes of Liverpool and Spuds, and I don't view us as a club who can't return to the top quite quickly...
But, if I was a player of Pogba's level and age, I'd definitely put sentiment aside and aim to play where I was gonna get a CL medal, that's what would matter to me at that point.
I would also ask for Isco in return if we do sell Pogba to them.But there's no way I want him gone unless there is a thorough plan towards using that money to get us back to the challenging on all fronts.
He’s not wrong to think it’d be nice to play in a midfield where the entire creative and attacking impetus doesn’t fall on him.As someone who's left the UK to live in Spain I can't really blame Pogba for doing the same.
But are United really beneath him, as you suggest? He had the chance to prove it against PSG and got completely owned.
If he turns up against Barcelona it'll be a different story, but until then the jury's out.
Also, regarding Solskjaer... Real have made three highly dubious appointments of their own either side of Zidane.
