‘Sell him and sign TWO £50m players’ – Man Utd star SLAMMED by Graeme Souness

‘Sell him and sign TWO £50m players’ – Man Utd star SLAMMED by Graeme Souness

Graeme Souness has been particularly critical of Pogba ever since he returned to the Premier League in 2016.

The pundit has often bemoaned the Frenchman’s lack of defensive knowledge and maturity in big games.

So much so that he has urged Manchester United to cash in on their World Cup winner and reinvest elsewhere.

Pogba arrived for a club record £89.3m under Jose Mourinho but, despite a brief renaissance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, has failed to match expectations.

“If United can get back the £89.3m they paid Juventus for him this summer, I would take the money and move on,” he wrote in his Sunday Times column.

“He would be a dream to play against. He lets you play because he thinks the game is all about him.

“You buy a player at that price to be the difference in the big games and he hasn’t been, so sell him and sign two £50m players instead.”

Solskjaer is under no illusions of the rebuilding job that faces him in Manchester.

The Norwegian has overseen a barren run that has seen them lose seven of their last nine outings.

Many of the players at Old Trafford have been signed by different managers to suit different systems leaving Solskjaer to pick up the broken pieces.

United still hold an allure that will attract plenty of the world’s elite players, but a lack of Champions League football could hinder their summer negotiations.

Chelsea visit Old Trafford this afternoon with both clubs still unsure of what European competition they will be playing in next season.

Arsenal’s defeat to Leicester earlier today means they failed to take advantage of Tottenham’s slip up against West Ham.

A win for the Red Devils would see them go level with Chelsea on 67 points and sit outside the top four on goal difference only.

Solskjaer got the better of Maurizio Sarri on their only managerial meeting thus far when he knocked the Italian’s side out of the FA Cup.

But today he is looking to equal a little piece of United history that stretches back over 50 years.

The Red Devils are looking to secure a third successive home league win over the west London outfit – something that hasn’t been achieved since Sir Matt Busby was manager.
