4 Reasons Why Man United Should Let Paul Pogba Leave In The Summer

Paul Pogba is poised to leave Manchester United next summer, six years after joining for a record amount from Juventus.

It's safe to say that the Frenchman's return to the Theatre of Dreams hasn't been without its ups and downs. According to reports, Pogba had a major falling out with the man who signed him, Jose Mourinho, during their time at the club together.

The Frenchman got off to a remarkable start in 2021/22 season. With the first few games of the season, the midfielder was at his most creative best, collecting up seven assists and looking as much of a star as anybody else - which is quite an achievement in this club.

Here are 4 reasons why Manchester United should let the World Cup winner leave Old Trafford for free a second time.

1. Pogba is no longer the top midfielder in the world

In a 4-2-3-1 formation, the Frenchman has frequently displayed a lack of technical security in possession. In the heat and tempo of the Premier League, he's been easy to press, since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer frequently chooses Fred and Scott McTominay in important games. If Manchester United offers Pogba a new deal, he must understand that he will be playing in a completely different position than the one for which he signed his first contract.

2. He is a defensive liability for United

In the press, Pogba has been referred to be a passenger, but having him and Ronaldo in a front four inhibits United's ability to close down opponents. It's no surprise that the Red Devils have failed to maintain the same chokehold on their opponents when the two have started at left flank and striker, respectively.

3. Others are kept out of the way by him

With United having spent so much on Ronaldo and Sancho, not to mention the club's ethos being inextricably linked to the development of young players, the Frenchman does not appear to be a natural fit in the squad.

4. Money must be spent elsewhere

Paul Pogba is reported to make almost £300,000 every week. That's a lot of money, and Manchester United can clearly afford it, but re-signing him will be even more expensive.

The club requires another defensive midfielder, who will not be inexpensive. They need to remodel Old Trafford, and they may have to pay off the manager and get a world-class strategist in the coming weeks rather than months. They may be considering long-term contracts for some of their rising talents. On top of that, spending such a large portion of the wage budget on Pogba seemed to be a bit excessive.
