Pogba, who has been nursing his recurring injury issues has played just eight times this season, which is quite shocking considering we are more than half-way through February.
And his agent, Raiola has been pretty vocal about his criticism for United in the whole Pogba saga. Last weekend, Raiola took aim at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when the Norwegian coach that "Paul is our player, not Mino’s."
Taking to social media, Raiola went on a rant that started with, "Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property."

And now, Keane has stepped on to this war of words and has stated has stated that the baggage that comes with the Frenchman has become too much, and it is in the club’s best interests to sell the player this summer.
“There’s been lots of noises coming out of Pogba’s camp for a number of months," Keane said, as reported by the Mirror.
Keane continued, "The simple thing I would do is move him on in the summer. He is a good player but there is too much baggage with him and his agent so just move him on. Sometimes you have to lose to win. It might backfire on you, but if it’s not right for the club and these agents are laughing at you, then let these lads go. Look at the bigger picture."
Revealing what he wants United to do going ahead, Keane concluded, "Don’t be chasing after these players who don’t really want to be at the club. I don’t think Pogba wants to be there. So just shake his hand and off you go."
