Pogba struggles for form in Manchester

Ever since his big-money move from Juventus back to Manchester United, Paul Pogba has struggled for consistency.

The midfielder did have an excellent spell under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when the Norwegian first took the reins at United last December.

Pogba would score seven and assist four in Solskjaer’s first seven league games in charge.

However, his form once again declined towards the back end of the campaign, as he scored just two and assisted none in United’s final 10 PL outings.

Pogba’s behaviour questioned

While Pogba has yet to manage a consistent season at Old Trafford, he is still being linked with a move to both Real Madrid and Juventus.

Pogba has also cast doubt over his Man United future.

In a recent interview, the midfielder spoke about maybe trying something new after his best ever season:

However, former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has raised some concerns over Pogba’s recent behaviour.

When asked if he would go all out to sign Pogba if he were still at Madrid, Calderon stated:

“I always relied on professionals. So I would ask my football director if he thought he was the right player to come for the project, and team. If the money was OK for the budget, I would say yes.

“He is a top player, no doubt. I don’t know if his behaviour recently has been the right one. Everyone would like to have a player of the skill and talent that Pogba has. I know that Zidane likes him so, in that case, I suppose Real Madrid will push hard to get him.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
