Man United star urged to move on in desperate attempt to save career

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been urged to move away from Old Trafford for a second-time in a last ditch attempt to reignite his now stalling career.

Pogba, 27, rejoined United in 2016 from Serie A side Juventus, four years after departing his current side’s youth academy.

The French midfielder’s second-coming, which cost the Red’s hierarchy a staggering £94.5m, as per Transfermarkt, has proved to be an investment which has seemingly failed to pay-off after the star continually struggles to find any sort of consistent form.

Since his transfer back to United four-years ago, Pogba has featured in 176 matches for the Reds’ senior first-team but has been directly involved in just 68 goals in all competitions.

Despite activating a one-year contract extension earlier this year, as confirmed by MEN, there are continued suggestions that the United hierarchy are preparing to move their French World Cup winner on.

Struggling for form and fitness, Pogba has recently found his role within Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side become more of a benched one and Italian journalist Paolo Condó believes the time is coming for the 27-year-old to make a move.

Speaking to Sky Italia (via Sports Witness), Condó said: “Who is Pogba right now? Pogba was a great player at Juventus who showed unprecedented growth margins because they were rarely seen in a midfielder of that quality,” as relayed by Tutto Juve.

“But at Manchester United it has resoundingly stopped. In fact, in my opinion Pogba will have to be one of the transfer men of next year and next summer. Because he has to rekindle his career in some way.”
