Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to hold on Paul Pogba amid ongoing transfer rumours. Moyes believes Pogba is United’s best midfielder and it would be a folly to let him leave.
The United midfielder was keen on a move away from Old Trafford this summer and his situation is being monitored by a host of top European clubs including Juventus and Real Madrid.
Pogba currently has two years left on his contract, and United have an option to sign him for another year after that.
“Pogba is still Manchester United’s best midfield player,” former United boss Moyes told talkSPORT.
“He could probably play for any team in the world, certainly in Europe. He’d get a game for any team. I’m not always sure he’s a player who’s consistent and makes the difference all the time.
For the profile he’s got, you’re hoping he makes the difference. He doesn’t always make the difference, but do I think he should stay at Manchester United? Yes, I do."
“I don’t think he wins games like Messi does for Barcelona or [Cristiano] Ronaldo does for Juventus, but I still think he’s a really talented player. He’s got a lot to give. Watching him at his best was when he was at Juventus, he played a little bit further forward, he got nearer the box more often."
“If you were picking the Manchester United team, Pogba would be in their midfield at the moment, that’s for sure.”
Pogba is currently sidelined with a foot injury, which saw him miss United’s defeat to Newcastle United before the international break and a 1-1 draw with league leaders Liverpool on Sunday.
