TalkSport pundit and former English midfielder Danny Murphy has opined that French midfielder Paul Pogba will be leaving Man United in no time because of the arrival of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
The coming of the Dutchman means manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be fielding three midfielders in his team in a single game and that may not work out, according to the talkSport pundit.
Man United already have Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba as midfielders in the team and they have both blended well within the short time of their paring but with the coming of Donny van de Beek, the system could change as the manager will have to accommodate them both.

Danny Murphy says he is yet to know where Donny van de Beek will play in the team, hinting that it could be difficult pairing him with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in one game.
He, therefore, concluded by saying the signing means Paul Pogba “is off” because despite having the ability to play as a number six in the holding role, he is not a defensive midfielder as such.
However, he questioned by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will move to buy another attacking midfielder when he already has two in his team, who are all first-eleven player.
