'Would Pogba Get In The Man Utd Team Now?'

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes feels it would be tough for Paul Pogba to get in the current side following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes joined the Red Devils late in the January transfer window and has seemingly fitted in quite well in midfield alongside Fred and Nemanja Matic.

Pogba has been out injured since the win over Newcastle United in December but while reports claim he is nearing a return, Scholes feels it would be tough for the 2018 World Cup winner to get back in the side.

"I think the fact that the last couple of weeks nobody has mentioned Pogba coming back into the team speaks volumes about what Fernandes has brought to the team," Scholes told BT Sport, as per the Mirror.

"He's probably brought what you expected from Pogba over the last couple of years, which hasn't quite materialised. I think the balance of the team looks really good.

"He's playing Matic and Fred, I know it was McTominay tonight, but those two sitting there allowing Fernandes the freedom has really worked for them. I don't think you go away from that when it's working.

"With the Pogba situation, we know what a top player he is, it doesn't look like he'll be here next year - we don't know that, but we think from what we're hearing.

"I just think carry on as you were, it's looking good enough at the minute. With Pogba, the way he's played, would he get into this team at the minute? It would be tough for him.

"With the way the team's playing, how can you change that? They've looked as good as they've looked in the last three or four years to me."
