'Pogba's Agent Will Try Take Him Away From Man Utd'

French superstar Paul Pogba has looked a player reborn since Jose Mourinho's sacking, but a former Manchester United captain is worried the midfielder's agent will attempt to get him a transfer away from the club again at some point.

'Pogba Can Be The Best In The World!'

The 25-year-old has scored nine times and assisted a further six goals in the 13 games he has played so far under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who replaced Mourinho in the Old Trafford hot seat in December.

Although he has been in great form of late, former United skipper Gary Neville has predicted that the player's agent, Mino Raiola, might still work to get Pogba a move away from the club, with the Frenchman having often been linked with a switch prior to Mourinho's dismissal.

"For two years, for £95 million (R1.7 billion), he gave nowhere near enough in terms of performance levels and contribution," Neville told Sky Sports.

"In the last two to three months, he's playing like the player they bought at £95 million. He's an outstanding player when he plays like he is doing at the moment

"But his agent and his character, in my opinion – if he plays for Manchester United for the next five years at the levels he's playing at now, there will be no one happier than us watching him out there because he's absolutely outstanding.

"But, in the back of my mind, the problems that we witnessed in the first two years will emanate again at some point.

"I think that his agent will be into him, he'll want his little move away and the next pay-off – and that's my problem with it. That's the issue I have with it."

'Pogba Is No Leader!'

Pogba was heavily linked with Juventus and FC Barcelona while Mourinho was still in charge, but appears to be happier at United now than ever before.

Do you think Neville has a point? Let us know in the comments section below.
