I'm not sure what all these reports are about. Pogba has actively sought to leave for 2 years, He wanted to move to Real Madrid last summer, and Barcelona the summer before. It has also been said that if he can't get his move this summer that he intendeds to run down his contract and leave on a free.

Pure speculation here, but maybe he doesn't feel he can get the move he wants this summer, so would rather run his contract down and leave on a free. But is aware United won't want to do this so has changed tact slightly suggesting he would be willing to negotiate a new deal to stop the club forcing him out this summer. If he can keep the club believing he'll sign a new deal until after the window closes then he will be able to see out his final year, then move to the club he wants to AND receive a huge signing on bonus as well.

Personally I think the club need to sell him and stop this ridiculous farce.

Utd have an option of another year. If the Club can't find a buyer that will meet his valuation this summer then he might just stay another season or longer. No need to panic the Club remains in a strong position especially with the emergence of Fernandes and the form of Fred, Matic and Mctominay. Pogba has a real fight for his place now or risk sitting on the bench for two seasons and wasting the best years of his career.

Theoretically Utd are a much better team with a motivated and in form Pogba. If nobody will meet his valuation Pogba will stay but unlike previous seasons we no longer rely on him and he'll have to fight for his place. He's spent this season predominantly injured, he won't want to spend next season on the bench so he'll have to buck his ideas up and with Utd having an option of another year things could be about to get very difficult for him. Ultimately footballers just want to play and maybe Pogba might have to just fall in line, cut out the nonsense and prove he's the superstar he thinks he is!

{Ed002's Note - The club cannot do that. If the club intend to force him not to play he will be able to cancel his contract and walk away.}

I'd rather play Lingard in midfield than give Pogba a new contract, especially with a wage increase, club cannot be that stupid to do so either. Pogba has to go, can count on one hand how much 'world class' performances he's had since he signed 4 seasons ago. Massive circus surrounding him aswell, awful attitude, all talent no application.

Ed002 - I never ever said anything about deliberately not selecting him that would be completely wrong and unnecessary. Pogba will have to fight for his place just like every other player at the Club. The form of other players means that his place in the team in no longer guaranteed and is now under threat. Rather than agitating to move he now needs to prove he's good enough to stay.

Any sensible person would advise Pogba to get fit and let his football do the talking. Whilst he's been out injured others have taken their opportunity and the Club have signed a very good player in Fernandes to replicate and hopefully complement his creativity. If his valuation is not met he will not move and he's no longer in such a strong position to negatively disrupt the squad.

I predict we'll either get a good fee for Pogba in the summer or a more determined and effective player next season if he stays.

{Ed002's Note - The amateurs should let him leave.}

just sell him and get rid of him and his virus agent, take lingard as well and be gone.

My guess is that other clubs have seen his attitude and now have doubts about wanting him.
The club should not even consider extending, get rid ASAP, he's a virus.

I agree shappy. Time to end the circus surrounding him.

we have spent more time over the last 2 years, talking about non footballing issues rather than pogba actually playing on the pitch. i'm tired of it, so are most people so can we just sell him and move on please.

I think you're right Tim. He has been here for nearly 4 years, he has made 150 appearances for the club. How many of those games can you remember a great performance from him? 10, maybe 15 games where you are left thinking wow, Pogba is a great player. Less than 10% of the time he puts in a great performance.

Maybe if he was living up to his potential then the whole circus that surrounds him might be worth enduring. Like how in the final couple of years with Ronaldo we had the whole Real Madrid saga. But Ronaldo was making the difference every game more or less so you deal with it.

Pogba makes the difference once a month at best. Hugely talented player, potentially one of the best in the world. But he just can't turn that talent into performances consistently enough to be worth the hassle.

Time to move on.

Do you think Pogcrap knows how much contempt the fans have for him?

Do you think he is aware how lazy and ineffective he is on the pitch?

Does anyone tell him?

Some naive peoples on here. It's so he doesn't get any crap from the fans when he uses us as a fitness boost for the Euros.
