Ralf Rangnick has talked about Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United.
The German boss has not yet met Pogba as the Frenchman is rehabilitating from his thigh injury in Dubai.
With the player already in the final year of his contract, Rangnick was quizzed about Paul Pogba’s future.
The United manager does not believe any player should have to be convinced to play for the club.
Rangnick thinks the Red Devils are one of the biggest clubs in the world, and the players should want to play for United rather than need to be convinced to represent the Old Trafford outfit.
Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola also spoke about his future yesterday.
He said that the French World Cup winner has several offers on the table, including one from United.
Raiola added that Pogba will decide on his future in the summer while admitting that very few clubs can afford his wages.
United signed Pogba in 2016 for a club-record fee.
He was expected to be a marquee signing for the club but has failed to live up to expectations.
Pogba has an abundance of talent in his game, but his problem has been the lack of work ethic.
Under Rangnick, United players will be expected to put in tiring shifts, something Pogba has never consistently done before.
It begs the question from the club’s end as to why they would want to lose further money on a player they cannot get the best out of.
United should cut their losses on the Frenchman and look to replace him with a hard-working midfielder next season.
