Pogba’s time at Man United
Paul Pogba rejoined Manchester United in August of 2016.
The Frenchman had previously enjoyed a fruitful spell in Serie A with Juventus.
Since his return to England, though, Pogba has been somewhat of a frustrating figure to watch.
It is pretty clear that Pogba possesses bags of talent, and when he is on his game, there aren’t many better than him.
However, throughout his second United stint, Pogba just hasn’t been consistent enough.
The 2018/19 campaign was a perfect example of this.
The 26-year-old had a fairly mundane first half of the season under Jose Mourinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer then stepped into the Man United dugout, and the Norwegian looked as though he had unlocked Pogba’s full potential.
In Solskjaer’s first nine league games as United boss, Pogba scored eight and assisted five.
However, Pogba’s form once again dipped off towards the back end of that campaign, with the midfielder scoring just two and providing one assist in the final 12 Premier League games of the season.
Pogba’s 2019/20 campaign would then begin in much the same way that his previous term ended.
The World Cup winner would fail to score in the opening four games of the PL season, and he has since missed the majority of the campaign due to injuries.
Man United torn over Pogba’s future
Earlier this week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would provide a brief update on Pogba, who has not featured in the league since December 26th.
The Man United boss stated that Pogba is not ready to join in with training yet:
“Marcus and Paul are not ready yet to join in the training.” As quoted by Manchester United’s official website.
Now, amid another fairly disappointing season, could Pogba’s time with Man United be coming to an end?
The Evening Standard recently reported that United are torn over the future of Pogba.
The report from the Standard claims that the main determining factor over whether the midfielder stays or goes will come down to money. But there is said to be a belief within the club that nobody can afford to take Pogba off United’s hands.
Some around Man United also believe that Pogba has played his final game for the club, as per the ES.
