McT isn't a DM. He's too similar to Pogba in that his focus is getting the ball forward.
Pogba, in a midfield two, needs someone who will take the defensive burden off him.
Think it's more than that he needs to be totally free to be at his best for Juventus and France he basically had license to go where he wanted to impact the game and the managers put security around him to cover that defensive weakness.
Utd don't really press as a team and our forward aren't expected to be defenders so when you've got those 4 up the top I do think you need your centre mids to just stay central and control that space which really restricts Pogba.
