Pogba should sign a five-year deal or leave - Ex-Man Utd midfielder

Tue 06 July 2021 | 14:11

There is only one year left in Pogba's contract, and there have long been rumors that Real Madrid and PSG are his next destination. The former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince believes the club should sign a new five-year deal with the French star or sell him this summer.

While speaking in association with Paddy Power, the former Manchester United midfielder told Goal:  

"Paul Pogba hasn’t signed a new Manchester United contract, and we don’t know what’s in his mind


"If he decides to stay, they should offer him five years, you can’t have annual disharmony with a player saying he wants to leave. 

"If you’re staying, stay and commit, show what a world-class player you are. If not, leave and let United use the money to bring in others.

"We’ve seen glimpses of Pogba’s true talent for France, and United occasionally. He performed very well at the Euros, but if you compare the French team with United’s, he’s playing with better players there.

"He came to United for big money, to be a talisman, but it just hasn’t worked out. If he gets back to his best, and United can put a couple of players with him, like Bruno Fernandes, I’d like to keep him.

"When Pogba plays for France, he’s in a holding position with N’Golo Kante. He gets more of the ball, and changes games. We don’t always see that at United."

Ince believes that whether Pogba stays in Manchester or leaves, the Red Devils need another first-class midfielder.

He added:

"Whether Paul Pogba goes or stays, Manchester United need another world-class midfielder. As much as I like Scott McTominay, and he’s going to get better, he’s still learning. They need someone world class now


"There are so many games to play in the Premier League and Champions League, so you need a big squad. 

"Will Donny van de Beek get an opportunity? He’s not had a chance at Old Trafford, and I feel sorry for him, remembering how good he was at Ajax. Coming to United should have been a dream move, but he’s not had the game time. Maybe if Pogba goes he will get that time."
