Man United chief Ed Woodward is under pressure to sanction the sale of France international midfielder Paul Pogba as he has not been valuable to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

The former Juventus midfielder has struggled to find a starting role this season. He has had three bench roles from seven appearances this term as a supposed talisman of the team.

The future of the World Cup winner is now up in the air with his contract at Old Trafford expected to expire in the summer of 2022. He is believed to be interested in a move to Real Madrid after given the header in a recent interview.

Former Liverpool and Everton midfielder Don Hutchison says Paul Pogba should be sold by Ed Woodward and advised that the fee should be spent on a quality player that will add value to the team.

Don Hutchison argues that Paul Pogba is no longer an important player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, insisting that the Red Devils have been better without him.

“I think they should [sell Pogba], I’ve been saying that for quite a while,” Hutchison told ESPN FC

“He’s struggled since coming back from [testing positive for] COVID-19, he’s struggled with his form, he can’t get in the side. The manager has got a ridiculous amount of talent but can’t seem to fit him in his team. When he really needs a win, Paul Pogba at the moment is on the bench.” He added.

The former therefore warned that this is the right time to sell Paul Pogba because he is still very valuable and wanted by Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba is unhappy that the Red Devils triggered the 12 months extension clause in his contract as he is keen to part ways and join football icon, Zinedine Zidane at Old Trafford.
