The protracted transfer saga surrounding Pogba's future looks set to drag on until the transfer deadline, and Ibrahimovic feels the best solution for the club is to cash in on the French midfielder and sign someone to replace him.

Speaking to the BBC, the former Red Devils striker, who now plays in the MLS, said that a club like United should only keep players who want to be there.

"I think, if he doesn't want to stay, it makes no sense to keep him," Ibrahimovic said.

"You let him go and if he wants to be somewhere else, that is where you let him go to. Use the situation and bring in somebody who wants to stay.

"The dressing is more (about) the players' respecting each other. They're professionals and understand each other's situation. Who worries more is the club and the management.

"You don't want a player in your club or in your team that doesn't want to stay because then you know he will not give 100% or 200%, or he does that and still doesn't want to stay."

Ibrahimovic played with Pogba at United between 2016 and 2018, before moving to the US to join MLS side LA Galaxy.

The British transfer window closes on 8 August and, although English clubs are able to sell to teams from other leagues, it is unlikely that the Manchester club would offload Pogba once the window shuts.

Do you think Pogba will still be a United player by the time the transfer window closes? Let us have your thoughts by commenting below.
