Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has insisted that wantaway midfielder star Paul Pogba needs to continue giving everything for the Red Devils irrespective of his future at the club.
Pogba joined United in the summer of 2016 for a then world-record fee of £89 million. After three seasons at the club, he had recently admitted that he was ready for a "new challenge somewhere else."
The Red Devils are currently on their pre-season tour of Australia and completed their first match against Perth Glory, a game they won 2-0 thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and James Garner.
Robson, who had a great career at Old Trafford, and is travelling with the team on their pre-season tour, said that he believed that the French midfielder has to continue giving his best whether he gets his transfer or not.
As per FourFourTwo, he said, "There is a lot of speculation in the media about Paul. He is a top player.
"You are contracted to Man United, (so you have to) get your head down, do your pre-season, which, from what I have seen in the training sessions he has done and if something happens and the club want it to happen, or if it doesn’t, you have to get on."
Pogba, who has drawn interest from Real Madrid and Juventus, is Mino Raiola's client, an agent known to be very vocal when it comes to his clients and doing what is best for them. The Red Devils value the midfielder at a steep £180 million to potentially dissuade interested clubs.

Speaking about agents, Robson said, "Players are influenced far too much by their agents instead of making their own decisions. OK, you might want some advice on what you might sign for and when you do move but you are your own person, you can show the path you want to do in your own career.
"I don’t think many players do that. They are always taking advice from agents. Obviously agents want players to move on because they make money," he concluded.
