The Manchester United matchday squad to face West Brom in the Premier League later tonight have arrived at the Lowry Hotel, however, the Reds’ star midfielder Paul Pogba was not among the United arrivals.
Pogba, 27, has come under intense fire throughout his four-year, second spell at Old Trafford, however, the heat has been turned up a notch in recent weeks.
A series of inconsistent performances mixed with a spate of individual errors have seen the Frenchman come in for some harsh criticism from both fans and pundits alike.
Whilst away on international duty earlier this week, Pogba didn’t help his cause after continually speculating over his own future by hinting he could be open to moving on from United.
More recently, The Athletic ran a report which claimed United’s World Cup winner could be preparing to let his contract run down until it expires in 2022 and eventually leave Old Trafford free.
The latest in the ongoing-saga surrounding the 27-year-old comes from Manchester Evening News’ chief football writer Samuel Luckhurst who has reported that Pogba was not among the United squad who arrived at the Lowry Hotel earlier this afternoon.
Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Alex Telles all included in #mufc squad for today. Paul Pogba not with the squad when United arrived at The Lowry. Unclear if he’ll rendezvous with teammates later.
