Former Manchester United full-back concedes not many would have spent a significant price on the Frenchman preceding Christmas; however, his stock is soaring again.

Paul Parker believes a Manchester United title win and summer move for Paul Pogba would be "a win-win" circumstance at Old Trafford, with a World Cup champ seeing himself back on a highly rated transfer option. 

An exit for the 27-year-old has been rumored for quite a while, with many questions about his form, fitness and future during his seconed stretch in English football. 

Mino Raiola has asserted that an inescapable move for one of his most prominent customers is on the table, with an £89 million ($122m) resource being edged towards the ways out of Old Trafford. 

Pogba's exhibitions heading into 2020-21 had been making it hard for admirers to defend him, yet the French international has been busy rediscovering his fine form. 

Pogba's match-winning spirit in the recent games is one reason United fans get their hopes high for winning the

Exit talks have begun to blur; however, Pogba's agreement will end in 2022. 

The club should make essential choices in the following transfer window, and Parker accepts the Red Devils should trade out on the off chance that they bring an end to eight-years of hanging tight for homegrown success this season.

The Ex-Man Utd defender has told Eurosport:

“Paul Pogba's recent performances have been reminiscent of the player from Juventus: he is respectful, humble and is not looking for excuses.

“Suddenly he has become a team player again. He’s earning the right to play.

“However, let's reserve judgement as we have been here before – Pogba needs to be consistently excellent; great players don’t play well the odd game, they have consistency.

“However, this week, at least, Pogba has been - alongside Bruno Fernandes - United's best player.

“If the season was over three games then great. It’s quite interesting that his level has spiked as United start to challenge at the top.

“If he wants to leave, there’s no better place to showcase yourself than playing for a team that’s competing to win a league title.

“It is a win-win if Manchester United finish as champions and Pogba gets a move.

“In fact, he might have thought, ‘I need to change my attitude. If the team are playing well and challenging for the title and I’m not involved, then what good am I?’.

“Would clubs have spent money on Pogba the way things were going before Christmas?”
