The former Red Devils midfielder claims that patience with a France international who will challenge his own position at Old Trafford has worn thin.
For Manchester United, Paul Pogba has been “nothing but issues” since returning to the club in 2016, says Paul Ince, now all involved at Old Trafford are raising questions about where they are heading from this stage.
The Red Devils spent £ 89 million ($116 million) on getting back a French international to their accounts, breaking their transfer record while doing business with Juventus.
The capture of Pogba was thought to be quite a coup, with plenty of potentials still to be unlocked in his game.
However, United was unable to get the best out of an elusive 27-year-old, with constant questions about his form and future being asked.
During his second spell in England, Pogba became a World Cup winner, but domestic problems led to the Red Devils being unable to kick on as a party.
Within Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side, with a place on the bench taken up in a 2-1 Champions League loss at Istanbul Basaksehir, there is now no obvious position for an expensive asset, and Ince admits that those on and off the field need to think about their choices.
Ladbrokes told the former United midfielder, ‘I love Pogba. I think that he was a world-class player in his day. At Juventus, we saw that. But it’s been nothing but a concern since he came to Manchester United.
There’s always something about Jose Mourinho and stuff about his representative. His results were not up to scratch, and his fans almost went against him.
“If I played with him, I would say, ‘Listen, you just go out and play. Go out and start performing there. You should talk of having to sign for Real Madrid until you start performing as you should be performing because you can’t even get into the Man United side at the moment.’
“If I’m Paul Pogba, I’m sitting on the bench thinking,” Hang on, I have Fred, Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes all playing in the midfield, and I’m sitting on the bench? Something has to be wrong with me.’
“Man United is not all about Pogba.”
At some point in his career, Pogba has aired a desire to represent Real Madrid, but United has adopted an extension clause in his contract that is due to hold him until the summer of 2022 in his current setting.
