Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has gone into detail about why he believes Manchester United superstar and Real Madrid transfer target Paul Pogba is struggling so far this season.
Since his first performance of the 2019/20 campaign, in which he assisted twice in a 4-0 win over Chelsea, the Frenchman has battled to find his best form for the Red Devils.
To make matters worse, he is currently sidelined with an injury after a pre-season during which he was heavily tipped to join Spanish giants Los Blancos.
Wenger, a compatriot, feels Pogba is playing like a player who does not think his team is good enough to challenge for titles.
"First of all, I think Paul Pogba, since the start of the season, has never been completely fit injury-wise," he told beIN SPORTS.
"He doesn't look completely confident physically and he's the type of player who has a huge physical power. He needs to be perfectly fit physically.
"After that, when a player wants to leave and you stop him from leaving, you know you go through a process of rebuilding the relationship that the first thing that suffers is the performances.
"I personally think he behaves as well like he knows that Man United, at the moment, is not the team to compete for the championship.
"And, plus, the fact that he was stopped from going away, it looks like the two together a little bit tarnish his performances."
Do you think Pogba will get his move away from United in January or at the end of the season? Let us know in the comments section below.
