Gary Neville thinks that Manchester United should allow Paul Pogba to leave the club if he wants to.
The midfielder announced last week that he was considering ‘a new challenge somewhere else,’ with Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG all having been linked with possible moves for the Frenchman.
Discussing Manchester United‘s current struggles in the transfer market, Gary Neville was asked if his former club need to keep hold of the France International: “They don’t have to keep any player,” he told Sky Sports.
“Manchester United are a better team when Paul Pogba plays but if players don’t want to be at the club – that doesn’t mean Pogba, he may want to be at the club – you have to get everybody onside and aligned with where you’re going.
“Ultimately, that’s the first thing Ole had to do – to work out who was going to be ready for the club moving forward. I’m still unsure on many players.
“I see the speculation on Sky Sports News and online and it looks like it could be moving all the time. You’ve got to get players in before you let them go because being armed with the money makes you vulnerable.
“For United, it’s all about timing and manipulating and manoeuvring to a point where they know they’re going to get players in before letting some go. Otherwise they’ll become very easy to target in terms of people bumping the money up, which I’m sure they are already.”
