Reasons why Pogba should stay at Manchester United

The French midfielder has struggled with injuries and looks to be on his way out of Old Trafford but his advisors should suggest him otherwise.

The most expensive footballer of all time. No matter where you are, it is a pretty hefty price tag to justify. For a year, Paul Pogba was this individual.

Thanks to Neymar and the billions at PSG, the price tag for Pogba’s move from Juventus to Manchester United does not matter anymore. That kind of sum is normal.

While the axe of transfer fees do not lie on his head anymore, Pogba is still struggling at Old Trafford. It has been four years that he returned to Manchester but he has struggled to impress.

After issues with Jose Mourinho, Pogba had a new lease of life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He impressed under the Norwegian’s first dozen games in charge but returned to his sulking ways soon after.

With Bruno Fernandes arriving from Sporting, the 2018 World Cup winner has been touted to leave the Red Devils but he should try and establish himself into the legend he wanted to be at Old Trafford.

Carry the weight

At Juventus, Pogba had Arturo Vidal to carry the burden of Juventus’ midfield while Andrea Pirlo weaved his magic behind the duo.

Ander Herrera was not the man to take share his burdens with the Frenchman. The Spaniard was more likely to add to his woes. Scott McTominay can help but he cannot play the whole season. The Englishman needs to develop first.

In Bruno Fernandes, Pogba finally has a worthy midfield partner. The duo has the energy to burden midfield responsibilities and take Manchester United forward.

Unfinished business

Real Madrid are knocking on Manchester United’s doors. There would be money to be made for both parties involved but should they take the easy money.

If it is United’s decisions, they should not take it. Even if Pogba has a say, he should stay away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

The reasoning for this suggestion is based purely on sporting reasons. Pogba has not completed his mission that prompted his return and needs to fulfil it.

He is known fondly in Turin but a premature exit would tarnish his footballing legacy. Win big and establish United as a force to reckon with, and Pogba can leave.
