Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes the Red Devils won’t be overly concerned with the situation of Paul Pogba, should the Frenchman leave the club in the near future. The France international has undergone a disappointing season with United where he was been inconsistent with his performances and of late, he has been a regular on the substitutes’ bench.
Due to this, there has been increased speculation that the midfielder could make way from the Red Devils next year and Keane feels United can handle the situation with much concern, he told Sky Sports News: “I think there are one or two problems with players, obviously not on top form. And the obvious one being Pogba. If he’s sitting on the bench today and not getting on then you’re thinking his days must be numbered. I don’t think they’ll do anything with Pogba in January but come the summer you move him on and it’s no big deal, he’s left Manchester United before.”
Pogba had come off an impressive World Cup for France during the summer where Les Bleus managed to secure the crown for only the second occasion in their history. With this in mind, the Red Devils’ faithful were hopeful that the midfielder could replicate the form at the club level but that has simply not been the case this term with the Frenchman being wayward with his distribution in a number of matches.
As such, he has found himself dropped to the bench and what has been more concerning has been his inability to earn any gametime during the club’s previous two league games. A report from Tuttosport has suggested that Pogba could make way from the Red Devils as early as the winter transfer window with Juventus keen on re-signing him, but the club are likely to wait until the summer before making a decision regarding his future.
