Merseysider addresses rumours United star could be signing with Chelsea in summer window
Steve McManaman expects Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United this summer, but claims that he wont be heading for Chelsea
Pogba has scored 29 goals and made 37 assists in 150 Premier League appearances but has often been accused of lacking the consistency of the world’s best players.
That has led to constant rumours in the media that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season, especially now that he is out of contract at the club and not looking to sign a new deal.
That has led to some shock reports in the media that we are very much open to the idea of handing him a massive £400,000-a-week contract to take him to the Bridge and partner him next to Ngolo Kante
But Former England winger McManaman told HorseRacing.net : ‘If Paul Pogba was to make a move to one of Manchester United’s Premier League rivals, I wouldn’t be shocked…. I would be incredibly shocked!
‘If it was Manchester City, Chelsea, or Liverpool I would be amazed, far more than shocked. Why would you?
‘Is Paul Pogba going to improve Manchester City’s team? No. He wouldn’t improve Liverpool’s either. Probably not Chelsea’s, the way they play.
‘Paul Pogba’s form for Manchester United over the past five years hasn’t been good enough to reflect that he can go and play for Manchester City or Liverpool.
‘His reputation is excellent, of course it is. But his reputation is in the France shirt and Juventus shirt. It’s not in the Manchester United shirt. His style of play is too slow for Man City or Liverpool.’
Would he even be welcome here guys? He hasnt really performed in the Premier League like he should have right?
