I am pretty sure Pogba will end up in Juve this summer. So that makes two of our best midfielders leaving in same window.

We already are in need of two midfielders and now will need to replace Pogba and Herrera both. This summer will be tougher than ever.

Pogba can't see it, we bought him for 90 mil. Was it, with inflation and for us to make money and not look like clowns again, we surely would want up in 150 mil. For him.
Will juve pay that, now they might look to offload a few players in the deal they want rid of, are we going to take them, can't see it happening.
Don't think any side will pay the money we want, and we have to put a big transfer fee on him.

Fair point Leahy but it looks like they very much want Pogba. Apparenly dybala is unhappy in the current juve style built around Ronaldo. They might sell Dybala to make some cash for Pogba.

People might question Pogba's mentality but he is among the very few quality player we have. I would not sell him personally but if he wants to go, it has to be a big fee. Many clubs have ripped us in the market and this time we should be no less.

Pogba is our most talent midfielder without a doubt. Yet he is the bad apple that is spoiling the other fruit in the bowl.

He needs to leave this summer, he doesn't want to be here and despite being our best midfielder he has been inconsistent at best. If we can get a large fee for him then great. But we took a hit on Di Maria, and we might have to do it again. We may need to factor in a swap or part exchange if a player we want is available in such a deal to save face.

There is no other fruit in the bowl to spoil, unless pogbas is influencing chris smalling into not learning how to pass a football or ashely young to not be able to cross.

DSG, Pogba is not the only footballer we have at the club. Now he might cause problems but he isn't actually responsible for making our other players poor.

However, his attitude can leech into other players. Maybe Rashford's supposed recently speculated poor attitude has been influenced by Pogba. When he broke through and up until the end of last season everything about his attitude was positive, hard working, a dedicated footballer who loves the game and the club. Now supposedly poor trainer who is being distracted by off field interests and has a growing ego.

Now we don't know if any of this is true, he might have always been a poor trainer, or he might be a great trainer and the reports are false. If he has developed a poor attitude that may or may not have happened with Pogba influencing him or not.

But when you have young impressionable lads coming into the first team they often look around a dressing room for people to look up to and imitate. They often don't have the experience to pick the most suitable person to look up to, but often pick the loudest, most outspoken, the one they think is cool. Pogba would count as that player in our squad.

We also currently the have an excellent bunch of youngsters about to break into the squad. Greenwood, Gomes, Chong, Garner, Tuanzebe. Etc. We also have young players such as Rashford, McTominay, Martial, Shaw, Andreas Pereira and Dalot. Who could be influenced by a strong personality.

Lots of potential fruit to spoil.

What other fruit? What bowel?

I know Pogba can be blamed for a few things, but causing an alleged outbreak of attitude in Rashford might be stretching it a little, Shaps 😁.

Stevie, not being ageist but how long has it been since you were young and impressional?

Having recently starting University as a mature student and as such having to spend far too much time surrounded by 18, 19 and 20 year olds I can tell you their attitude is starting to develop at that age and they are very easily influenced. Often not by the people they should be looking to emulate, but by those they shouldn't be. Also on the whole University students tend to be a touch smarter than your average footballer, so should in theory make less stupid decisions.

So yes, a loud, larger than life presence in the dressing room will gain more attention from young impressionable players. As the class of 92 learned from Cantona the current youngsters will learn from Pogba.

On the whole I don't think many people will think of that as a good thing.

Several respected journalists have reported that he’s had a big influence on Lingard, Rashford and Martial.

{Ed033's Note - these can't be mainstream media journalists then

04 Jun 2019 19:48:48
Miguel Delaney in “The Independent: says “Just one of many dressing-room concerns right now is that Pogba has a negative influence on Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, the latter of whom is seen to have lost his previously endearing humility”, while Chris Ashton in “The Sun” says: “Pogba runs the United dressing room and he needs a firm hand to keep him in check after yet another dip in form. ” and “And The Sun now reports that Pogba is ‘tearing Manchester United’s dressing room apart’ which will likely see the end to his time at the club.

The 26-year-old is understood to have told team-mates that he doesn’t think United have ‘made any progress’ since he left for Juventus seven years ago.

The report adds that United fear that Solskjaer can’t handle Pogba’s big personality”.

Wallace. The independent and Sun are one of the crapiest paper. They write without any source so i would not worry about what they say.

I am not so sure that he is the bad apple. He is loved in french team and is vocal there. I know he is inconsistent but i don't think he is the reason other players are playing poor. If you take pogba and play him in liverpool team, I am pretty sure he would be a massive player for them.

What i mean is, our playing style has taken toll on game play of our players. We actually don't have right players to play high pressing, attacking game which has msde it hard for the few right players we have. I mean for every rashford, Pogba, we have young, smalling.

I would personally get rid of smalling, jones and young before anyone. This guys being terrible are about to complete a decade in our club.

04 Jun 2019 23:36:42
pogba is a 89 mill flop and could not influence my a se.

04 Jun 2019 23:57:43
Rashford has always seemed a pretty grounded young man to me, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt until I actually see or hear him doing something that smacks of attitude. I remember reading an interview with him somewhere, when he first broke into the team, and family seems very important to him, especially his mother. If he's been brought up right, with a stable family background, there's a good chance he won't suddenly be led astray by Evil Pogba.

Has anyone actually seen or heard him do anything that suggests his attitude has suddenly become an issue?

05 Jun 2019 02:38:01
Paul Pogba is our best player. He is no problem in the french team and the Sun single him out it sells papers.

Want to know what the problem is? The amount of money that has been flung around at Utd and the wages of average players being so high that now everyone thinks entitled to a superstar pay.

P. S. - If Pogba says we haven't progressed since he joined Juve, could we disagree?

05 Jun 2019 10:13:47
@shappy I would think Lingard may be more to do with Rashford's attitude, no one seems to mind the fact Lingard launched his own clothes line mid-season. Another aspect may be all the attention Rashford is getting, all those little YouTube interviews and skits he is involved in.

05 Jun 2019 12:44:48
So72, your right Pogba isn't a problem when playing for a side he wants to. He is happy to play in a French side that has a real chance of winning things. He is not happy to be playing at United.

Remember the only reason he came back to United was we were the only fools daft enough to pay what was being asked. He didn't want to return to the club, he saw it as a stepping stone to La Liga.

Then the club blocked a potential move to Barcelona last summer and he threw his toys out the pram, turned the dressing room against the manager which ultimately lead to Mourinho's sacking (although Mourinho certainly didn't help the situation) which also lead to us missing out on UCL football for next season.

I don't understand the number of fans who are desperately clinging on to a player who so plainly holds no affection to our club and who wants to leave so much that he would give up on his dream move to la Liga and move back to Juventus rather than stay with us for one more season.

The guy doesn't want to be here, while that is the case he is toxic to our dressing room. Move him on and bring in players who want to be here.

05 Jun 2019 15:39:22
Shappy hit the nail on the head. We our trying to build a team around a player who doesn't want to be here. Instead of pogba our focus needs to be on improving positions we have neglected for so long ( no proper wingers, makeshift fullbacks) and assemble a proper balanced squad that plays to a proper system.

05 Jun 2019 17:18:17
I don't doubt Pogba doesn't want to be here, and there are many sticks to beat him with, but I still don't see anyone telling me how he's supposed to have led Rashford to the dark side, or showing me any evidence that Rashford has developed a bad attitude.

05 Jun 2019 22:53:24
Pogba is pants and I can't wait to see him leave man utd so we can have a proper player take his place in the squad.

I don't think I've ever seen a more over rated joke of a player and I'm amazed that Madrid or Juve want to pay so much money for him. Charlatan.
