Scholes: Let Pogba leave if he wants to

Paul Scholes has said that Manchester United should allow Paul Pogba to leave club if he wants to.

Pogba seems to be one of the main talking points in the Premier League, no matter what kind of performance he puts in. While many will say that the £89 million midfielder has had a disappointing campaign, he still managed six goals and 10 assists in the league this season, despite spending several months on the sidelines through injury.

Following his return from that injury, his performance levels were particularly disappointing, with Jose Mourinho even leaving him on the bench for some games.

His performances have led to speculation that he could be sold, and Pogba has recently refused to rule out a move to PSG in the future. However, speaking to talkSPORT, United legend Paul Scholes has said that there is no point in keeping him around the club if he doesn’t want to be there:

“Once the season is over and players meet up with their international teams there are always some comments made,” said Scholes.

“But look, if players aren’t happy, let them go. That’s always the way I feel about it.

“Pogba has been just okay this season for a player of his quality. There’s still time. He’s only been there a couple of years and he’s still a young-ish player. Let’s hope he produces more of his Juventus form next season.”

While there were a number of high profile Premier league stars who were left out of the France squad, including United team-mate Anthony Martial, Pogba was one of the players selected by Les Blues for this summers World Cup in Russia.
