Footy Accumulators speaks to @FullTimeDEVILS on the developing Paul Pogba situation

Terrific talent, record signing, but is it time to say goodbye?

One of the biggest stories of the summer transfer window and one that's bound to gather more & more momentum, the future of Paul Pogba is never too far away from the headlines.

The 26 year-old is without a doubt one of the best players in the Premier League on his day and Manchester United's most prized asset, but it appears that his days at Old Trafford are numbered.

His high profile spats with former boss Jose Mourinho, apparent lack of desire on the pitch, spats with supporters and now comments made to media about wanting a "new challenge somewhere else" indicates that his time at Old Trafford could soon be up.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on retaining the £89m man despite all this. He knows what a terrific player he can be but it's believed that the United hierarchy won't stand in his way should they receive a substantial bid for his services.

Both Real Madrid and former club Juventus are seriously interested in recruiting the World Cup winner and the Red Devils won't be willing to let him leave on the cheap, with them demanding a figure in the region £150m for their club record signing.

And if they could pull that off, you have to say that it's pretty good business for the Red Devils. It would represent a massive profit on what they paid three years ago and it would also ensure that they remove a negative influence in the dressing room. But then on the flip side, United are losing one of the Premier League's best players and it could send out a negative message going forward.

The Red Devils aren't used to losing players that they want to keep so all of this is quite worrying, but it also shows the transitional phase that they're going through at the moment.

Big changes are both required and forecasted at the club this summer with Solskjaer expected to be very busy in the transfer window. Daniel James has already arrived for £15m from Swansea City, whilst the club also continue to pursue Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka despite having one bid already knocked back.

The Norweigan is chasing hungry, younger players, opting against the big marquee names of old that have come into Old Trafford and underperformed. This has led to the likes of Issa Diop, Adrien Rabiot, Bruno Fernandes and Leicester & England duo Harry Maguire and James Maddison all linked with moves to the north west.

We all read about the speculation surrounding Manchester United everyday when it comes to Paul Pogba or OGS' targets, but what's the fans take on all of this?

We spoke to @FullTimeDEVILS earlier this week to gauge the fans perspective on all things Pogba and United, with them describing the circus surrounding him as a "mess"...

@FullTimeDEVILS on the Pogba Situation

@FootyAccums: Whats been the fans overall take on the Pogba situation - he’s obviously a top player on his day but are they ready for him to be sold so the club can move on?

@FullTimeDEVILS: Think most fans are fed up of the circus now, yes he's a great player but you want players who want to be at the club, not looking to move yet again.

@FootyAccums: Back in the Fergie days he famously said no player is bigger than the club, does selling Pogba prove that?

@FullTimeDEVILS: You could argue not selling him is standing firm, selling him simply give him what he wants.

@FootyAccums: Do you think moving him on will send out a big message to other players at the club?

@FullTimeDEVILS: Moving him on may send out the message that United are in a transitional phase and we're moving away from the big stars and looking for hungrier younger players.

@FootyAccums: What sort of figure would you be happy with and ideally, which player(s) would you want to bring in to replace him?

@FullTimeDEVILS: £150 million ideally, he's worth that in the current market, I'd like to see Fernandes and Rabiot brought in, if not then maybe Maddison and Partey but knowing Woodward we'll probably end up with Mark Noble.

@FullTimeDEVILS' Jay Motty (@RFFH) also admitted that whilst Pogba is an immensely talented footballer, it's time to move on their club record signing and use the money to continue Ole's rebuilding job.

“It’s a mess with Pogba and United again and unlike in the past where you may have blamed the manager, now it’s undoubtedly the player that’s the problem. He doesn’t want to be here and it’s sad as despite his inconsistency he’s still one of our most talented players and ideally we’d build a team around him, it’s obvious though that’s not an option so it’s time to part ways, get some decent money for him and rebuild the team without him.”

Gaz Drinkwater (@Radio_Gaz) also added: " I think we should let him do what he wants. That’s best for everyone. If he wants to stay at United and is prepared for the graft then fair play. If not let him go."

For all things Manchester United make sure you give @FullTimeDEVILS a follow...
