The ex-Red Devil striker believes Pogba's time in Manchester is over.

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes United will not miss anything by selling Pogba.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola announced in a controversial interview on Monday that Pogba's time at United is over. Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer benched the French star in

United

's most important game of the season against Leipzig, and his side eventually lost 3-2.

The French midfielder has long been rumored to be leaving Manchester United, and now Berbatov claimed that it is the best time to end the collaboration after Raiola's embarrassing interview.

Berbatov told Betfair

"Mino Raiola's comments about

Paul Pogba

being unhappy were very poorly timed, right before a massive match in the Champions League. That isn't ideal and I'm sure it would have been felt in the dressing room before the game.

"I don't think Pogba would have known what Raiola was about to say, which is embarrassing for the player. At the end of the day the agent is working for the player, so the agent should do what the player tells him, it doesn't matter who you are - you work for the player.

"It was the wrong way to do things, it created a big fuss which was totally unnecessary before a match. On the other hand, if Pogba did tell his agent to say those things then it's obvious that something isn't quite right.

"I can understand if Paul is not happy, I bet he isn't because he isn't playing, it's obvious, when he comes on as a sub and has very little game time he won't be happy.

"If this situation continues then I think it's best if they part ways because, in the last few games, Solskjaer's lack of confidence in Pogba has been clear.

"At the same time, we do have to take into account that he is coming back into the team after testing positive for coronavirus, so this could also be a factor, but if he is genuinely unhappy and he continues to be left out of the starting XI, then I think it's best for him to move on.

"If he is in his best condition and in his best form then United will miss him, but if he continues in the form he is in then he won't be a miss at Old Trafford."
