Paul Pogba is winding down his contract at Manchester United and it wouldn’t surprise anyone with a close affiliation to the club if he were to be transfer listed in the summer.
After all, his agent Mino Raiola made that clear in December the night before Manchester United crashed out of the UEFA Champions League after losing to RB Leipzig 3-2 away from home.
But Ian Wright “would love” Pogba to play for Arsenal as he continues to be linked with an Old Trafford exit.
On top of that, Pogba has been in and out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI in recent months. The midfielder has performed well of late and it seems like Solskjaer is handling a difficult situation very well.
Wright appeared on Match of The Day over the weekend and he waxed lyrical about Pogba’s performance against Aston Villa.
“Yes [Pogba is back to his best] he is and you know, with all the stuff that’s happened with him he’s getting it right on the pitch,” he said (via the Mirror).
“He’s put it all to the side and to be honest he’s putting in good performances. ‘He was unlucky there [not to score against Villa] but I thought with his ability he should have scored.
“Great touch, great play, great awareness, great skill. He’s getting everyone playing and that’s what he does.
“He was everywhere. He was in his own box, he was up there in their box, he was doing everything today.
“That’s what he can do with his creativity. you give him this much time when you have willing runners like Marcus Rashford….that is just fantastic.
“A super, super pass. I’d love to have someone like that.”
Pogba has improved…
Pogba was excellent against Villa but hasn’t performed like that consistently for the past four years he’s been at United.
This wouldn’t be far off a United fan or former player suggesting why signing Mesut Ozil would be a good idea.
It wouldn’t but Arsenal are free to fight for Pogba’s signature in the summer.
