Former Man Utd Star Wants Pogba To Stay

While Paul Pogba continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid, one former Manchester United star feels the club should do everything to keep the Frenchman.

Pogba has not featured since United's 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Boxing Day last year after needing surgery on his ankle.

Some former players feel the club should just sell the 2018 World Cup winner as they feel he has not hit the heights since his big-money move from Juventus in 2016.

However, former United winger Lee Sharpe hopes to Pogba remain at the club and go on to become a Red Devils legend.

"I'd like the club to keep him, I think he could be an absolute United legend," he told Sky Sports News. "I think he's one of the best players they've got at the club.

"He's world class on his day. I know at times he doesn't do that for 90 minutes and often enough but I think if they were to build a team around him and bring a few players in that can play around him and get on his wavelength I think he could be a sensation for United.

"The only thing is if Paul Pogba has decided that he wants to leave then there's not a lot you can do about that if you've got an unhappy player.

"I don't think he's as distracting and a bad influence in the dressing room as people make out. I think the players quite like him to be fair, I don't think that's the issue.

"I think it's whether Paul Pogba wants to stay at Manchester United.

"In the current situation when they're re-building and they're not really challenging for leagues it's a question he needs to ask himself and whether he wants to go elsewhere and look for that.

"But he could be a massive part of the re-build. They could build a team around him and he could be a United legend for years to come."
