This is something I agree with. Why not try to build a functioning and balanced team, where Pogba, Martial and Rashford are the spice on top. Not to build around Pogba, but to get the best out of our best players.How about instead of selling Pogba and replacing him with 2 worse midfielders, we try everything to keep him and sign a top midfielder to dictate the game and play Pogba in that 'loose' position, not exactly a 10 but he has freedom to affect the game with less defensive responsibilities.
Struggling to decipher how selling him and replacing him with one or two of Ndidi, Madisson, Soumare, Havertz etc. makes any sense. Havertz may become world class, but Pogba is in a completely separate league from these guys in terms of ability and how he can impact the game. If we keep playing him in a midfield 2, he will never reach the potential that he has for this club as it's just not his position.
United need to figure out where's best to play him, and we need to buy players to balance out a midfield with Pogba in it. Think of that Juventus midfield he was in. Pirlo, Vidal and Pogba. Pirlo, the dictator and DLP, fills a role that Pogba can't. Vidal, box to box, tackler, but a great passer and all round midfielder. Lastly, Pogba, his game at Juve was defined in moments of brilliance, an unbelievable pass or distance goal.
The problem here is that we expect Pogba to fill all of those roles when he's in the team. It's just not possible and he's always going to fall below our expectations as our midfield has been so shocking around him
For all of you who want him shipped out, do you expect United to do Pogba and RM a favour and just sell him at whatever price? There are three parties involved in this potential transfer. Pogba hasn’t been good enough consistently, but who has on our team? It’s still a team game. It’s also kind of a catch 22 situation for him, he can’t deliver consistently, either of his own accord, but also because we, as a team, have failed again and again. With this in mind, who other than RM would be in for him? Looking at the Lukaku situation, we’re not going to let him go on the cheap, and it didn’t really seem like RM were willing to pay up. A weird situation for sure, what’s even stranger imo, is people actively wishing him sold.
