Manchester United, Paul Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent months with Real Madrid and Juventus targeted to his signature
Real Madrid doesn’t need Paul Pogba-they need “humble” players. This opinion came from the former Los Blancos star, Uli Stielike who is convinced the Frenchman would “sacrifice” him for Real Madrid.
The United star has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Real Madrid and Juventus among the clubs interested in signing him.
Speculations that Pogba will leave has grown since Bruno Fernandes joined United in January’s transfer window. The Portuguese has impressed and seems like he doesn’t need the World Cup winner to get results.
However, Stielike doesn’t believe his former team should offer Pogba an escape route. When asked if Real Madrid should sign Pogba, he answered, “If you want to return to the idea of the Galacticos, maybe yes. But I am more in favor of humble players with great talent and sacrifice for the team.”
Despite claims Pogba is no longer needed at Man United due to Fernandes’ arrival, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to back the Frenchman to succeed.
He strongly believes Pogba can form a partnership with Fernandes to United’s benefit. The Norwegian commented, “Good players can always play together. So, definitely, they can. It’s a big yes.”
“I think it’s exciting. We do have an exciting squad. I’ve got Scott McTominay, Fred, Matic. There are many games coming up and I’m sure we can find a good connection between them. We’ve been discussing that as a coaching team of course and we’re looking forward to it.”
“Of course Bruno coming in, making the impact he made, it was a boost for everyone. The club, supporters and players. Getting Paul and Marcus Rashford back would be fantastic.”
“Paul has had a difficult season with injuries. Marcus as well. So for us, and for them, this gives them a chance to start on a par or even ahead of other players.”
