United face fight for 'next Patrick Vieira' – report

Published Add your comment

Manchester United face a fight to keep midfield enforcer Paul Pogba, the Daily Mirror claims, with the youngster open to talks with other clubs early next year.

Pogba left French side Le Havre two seasons ago to work under Sir Alex Ferguson’s wing, and has been a star for United’s youth side ever since.

The youngster got his professional senior debut for United when the side played Leeds in the Carling up, and is reportedly pushing for more first-team experience.


Pogba is also demanding a better deal to stay at United, and is said to be open to talks with other clubs if he can get more time on the pitch.

Ferguson recently admitted that if Pogba doesn’t start getting more playing time in the senior United squad, he is bound to leave the side.

"I mean if we hold Pogba back, what’s going to happen? He’s going to leave,” he said.

“You know, in a couple of years’ time when his contract is going to finish. So we have to give him the opportunity to see how he can do in the first-team and he’s got great ability, plus he’s got the physique and athleticism.”
