'Man Utd Will Be Fine Without Pogba'

A Manchester United legend has claimed the Red Devils would be fine without FC Barcelona target Paul Pogba.

How Ronaldo Responded To 'Messi Is Better Than You' Taunts At Man Utd

Eight-time Premier League winner and former United captain Gary Neville has revealed that he thinks the Frenchman is looking for a way out of the club, and that it would not be the worst thing to happen to the Red Devils if he did leave.

"There are four ways to look at it," Neville told The Times. 

"Pundit, owner, fan and a personal word. Neville the pundit would say: he's a talented player but I want to see more consistency and leadership.

"As a fan, honestly, part of me says that no one is bigger than the club and I am not interested in people who are looking left and right. So, Paul, if you want to go play somewhere else, let's make that work for you because Manchester United will be fine, don't worry about that.

"The owner in me would do what United are doing at the moment, saying he is not for sale. They have to protect their asset but, privately, they might be doing a deal because they want to get their £90 million back.

"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice, it would be: 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional. Don't be someone who is seen as a mercenary or a mutineer. You don't need to do that.'"
