Paul Pogba has informed teammates of his desire to leave Manchester United

Everton FC v Manchester United - Premier League

Paul Pogba pulled no punches with his comments following Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday.

“The way we played and the performance of myself, of the team, of everyone is disrespectful," Pogba told Sky Sports.

"Everything went wrong, but the mentality on the pitch has to change."

Many feel that Pogba is part of the problem at Old Trafford.

Gary Neville included the Frenchman among the players who aren’t performing at their best and it must be said that he hasn’t looked like an £89 million player on a regular basis since his return to the club in 2016.

Reports of a departure from the club in the summer have only intensified as a result of Pogba’s admission in March that playing for Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid would be a “dream for anyone”.

And, while the Red Devils would be reluctant to admit defeat on a player with incredible talent, it seems like the end could very well be close.

Pogba has told teammates he wants to leave

L’Equipe are reporting that Pogba’s departure from Man United ‘appears to be scheduled’ for this summer, with the board not planning to prevent him from leaving if Real Madrid make an offer.

The 26-year-old has even gone as far as to inform certain teammates of his desire to leave.

Pogba still has two years remaining on his contract so Man United are still in a position where they can demand a high price for him.

And with Los Blancos reportedly keen on a marquee ‘galactico’ signing in the summer, it would come as little surprise if they do reach a deal with the Red Devils for Pogba.

With the Daily Mail reporting that Man United are keen on re-establishing a British core, it makes sense for them to move on from the World Cup winner.
