Makes me laugh when you see these tabloids that are claiming Zidane has been backed with £500 million to go and get Pogba, Mbappe and Hazard
How does losing Pogba for 125m and signing Coutinho for 90m sound?
someone this morning said Ole would let him go for 125
anyone who wont constantly put us in the press for the wrong reasons?
We need to sign him up or sell him, or it will be another year of disruptive rumours.
I don’t actually think Madrid want Pogba. How many noises have they made about getting him? When Madrid/Barça want a player they never shut up about them. All the noises seem to be coming from Pogba’s camp.
I wouldn’t even answer the phone if the deal is less than £150m the market has moved on since we signed him. I also think that whilst he’s hot and cold when in form he’s one of the best in the world and if he goes to Spain the extra time and space will mean he’ll tear it apart weekly.
Was this Sam Luckhurst by any chance ? @Mr CKeane was right about some United players being weak. There is only so long their representatives can drone on about the club’s lopsided wage structure and cite Sanchez whilst clients under-perform. Pogba is without a goal from open play in over two months, Rashford has three goals in 13 and De Gea is treating speculative shots with about as much attention as Friday afternoon emails. Pogba led the way at Goodison - off the pitch. He was the first down the tunnel after the final whistle and it will be a depressing day if United compete with Real Madrid for Pogba’s affections.
United are partial to that hollow tawdriness, for they kowtowed to player-power by dismissing a manager who had sussed several of this squad’s feckless footballers. Pogba has been the most destabilising influence at United for close to 18 months and his social media reaction to Mourinho’s sacking was one of the most disrespectful gestures by a modern player that is also endemic of this squad.
At a club where dressing room sources compared certain players’ behaviour to eight-year-olds, the United hierarchy has deprived the manager of control and if those players rode roughshod over Mourinho they could do the same with Solskjaer.
Time to give them a swerve.
