Former United star supports Man Utd to tie Pogba down to fresh terms

Thu 22 April 2021 | 16:34

The former United star Lee Sharpe believes the France World Cup winner Paul Pogba still has a lot to offer and Manchester United should extend his contract.

Pogba

is heading towards the final year of his current contract at Manchester. There are rumors that United may sell the midfielder before he becomes a free agent to benefit financially from his transfer.

"

If Paul Pogba’s heart is at Manchester United I’d be trying my best to get him a new contract before the end of the summer,

" Lee Sharpe told The Mirror.

"I think if he doesn’t want to sign and his head has been turned to go elsewhere then I would sell him right at the start of the summer so I’ve got all summer to find a replacement and go and get another world-beater, but for me I’d try and keep him at the club."

Sharpe added: "

I’m a bit of a Paul Pogba fan if I’m in honest. I love him, love watching him. I think he’s a class above most players in the Premier League when he’s on his game

.

"If we can get him fit and keep him fit and give him a run in the team I think he’ll win games for you. I know defensively he’s a little bit lacking at times but I think sometimes the greatest players that go forward and create for you are not great defensively.

"So I think you need to put players around them to protect against that. But going forward he’s the type of player who gets in situations, takes defence into attack, goes past people, we’ve seen he can score goals and create goals, a wonderful player."
