Manchester United opinion: Red Devils should let Pogba leave for the right price

The Metro has reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to let Paul Pogba leave the club for Real Madrid if Manchester United are to receive £120million for the sale.

Paul Pogba has had a strange season. There were times where he looked unplayable, as is usually expected of him when he steps on to the pitch, and there have been times where he looks like he’s forgotten to play the game.

It wouldn’t be curtains for the Red Devils if he is to leave. United can use the money from Pogba’s potential sale to fund areas in the squad that need urgent addressing in a manner similar to what Liverpool did with Philippe Coutinho.

Real Madrid will be getting some much-needed dynamism in their midfield. The Madrid midfield can still compete against the best but they’ve never necessarily provided a goal threat.

Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Isco are very tidy players who keep the play ticking but are never in a hurry to hurt you directly. Perhaps Pogba could give them some cutting edge in certain games. The midfielder can also join his French compatriots in Raphael Varane and Zinedine Zidane.

Pogba had the best period of his club career during Solskjaer’s first 3 months. Solskjaer faces a real conundrum as he’s been tasked with this massive rebuilding job at United. He’ll have to make a tough decision on Pogba’s future as he’s tried to build his squad around the Frenchman.

He’ll have to dismiss that tactic entirely and form another identity very soon if Pogba is to leave. This will be an even greater problem if this transfer saga continues until the very last days of the summer transfer window as a very important pre-season might be disturbed by the news.

There are opportunities to build something in Pogba’s absence but his quality will definitely be a miss for the Red Devils if he does leave. Pogba is also a very marketable athlete and the Galacticos will want him to be just as important on the field as well.

United can also use the vacancy to allow younger players like Angel Gomes to make more appearances. This may yet prove to be a good deal for both sides.
