Manchester United Legend Lee Sharpe believes Paul Pogba is the world-class player that the team should be built around.

The question of what to do about Paul Pogba is a footballing conundrum many have tried to answer.

Lee Sharpe played in a United side packed with world-class players. The club legend feels that Pogba is probably the only player worthy of that title at the club right now.

As such he believes that they should fight to keep hold of him and build the team around such an asset.

Speaking to Sky Sports News Sharpe is adamant Pogba can become a Red Devils legend.

However, United need to bring in the players to make Pogba happy to stay at the club.

He said:

“I’d like the club to keep him, I think he could be an absolute United legend.”

“I think he’s one of the best players they’ve got at the club.

“He’s world-class on his day.

“At times he doesn’t do that for 90 minutes and often enough.”

“But I think if they were to build a team around him and bring a few players in that can play around him and get on his wavelength I think he could be a sensation for United.”

“The only thing is if Paul Pogba has decided that he wants to leave then there’s not a lot you can do about that if you’ve got an unhappy player.”

“I don’t think he’s as distracting and a bad influence in the dressing room as people make out.”

“I think the players quite like him to be fair, I don’t think that’s the issue.”

“It’s whether Paul Pogba wants to stay at Manchester United.”

“They could build a team around him and he could be a United legend for years to come.”
