News coming in United not looking to sell Pogba in winter or summer. Seems it is proving very difficult to find a buyer. Also there some rumours about a loan move in winter to Juve or PSG.

Though he was portrayed as being a virus during Mr. Jose's regime, it would still be good to have him in the team if he can carry on the form has shown in the last couple of games. But history shows he is very inconsistent and is unpredictable character. Interested to see what happens with him. Has huge potential though, could become a huge star in future or a miserable failure of a career.

the loan rumours are coming from some kind of reliable sauce think is was hellmans,

then i read from Heinz that he is set to stay.

i get the papers and that need to make headlines to sell but its annoying that day to day they change there stories.

remeber fergie blasting the press in a press conference once saying its there job to tell the truth.

only reliable way of getting anything truthful is on this site.

days of reading papers are long gone for me.

Ed002 mentioned that the plan is to sell but difficult to find suitable buyers with Juv interested. I would guess nothing has changed.

But before a couple of weeks many in here wanted him to be sold, would people change their mind after the past two games?

the only positive is that he keeps playing well and then it might be easier to sell him,

its a difficult one to answer because if i had someone managing me that was constantly outing my co workers and making life miserable i would feel the same,

but then again us fans pay a lot of money to support the club and for him to go from giving little effort to maximum effort for a new manager, what's to say he will do the same if OLE or the next manager who ever it will be does the same.

an inform pogba is better than no pogba and he can take us to the next step but do we become a club based on player power. or was it jose that was the problem time will only tell,

if he goes he goes and if he stays then great, players should want to gove there all and play for the shirt regardless of winning if they show that they care most fans will be happy.

I've not always been Pogbas biggest fan at United but if he can play like he did on Boxing Day why would you even want to sell or loan him?

He is easily the best player in the club and on his day and one of the best midfielders in Europe. If Ole can get him playing well, consistent and change his attitude around we should be building a team around him.

I’m not comparing the two at all yet but Cantona was pandered to by Sir Alex and got preferential treatment to coax the best firm from him. This is nothing new in the game. Jose has no plan B - my way or the highway and life isn’t that simple.

I don't think Pogba will go anywhere for a while.

It would be £140m+
The lose in face and commercial revenue will be high so a similar profile player would need to come in.

Barca don't have him as a priot and cannot afford him,

Real are going to go through a huge churn of players at some point and I think their investment is going to be on forward players.

Only leaves Juve and PSG as options for the short term, PSG have FFP issues and Juve don't have the £130m without selling or including players. Might be interesting if Dybala goes to Madrid though.

I think Paul will be with us for at least 1 more season based on the current situation.

When does he stop being potential? He's 25 he needs to be stepping up on a consistent basis now. He can't fall back on a personality clash with the manager or that the managers tactics don't suit him now as excuses.

It's hardly "falling back on" the manager's tactics. Jose required him to play in a way which stiffled him (and not just him, several of our players couldn't produce their best under Jose's way of playing) .

How would CR7 have fared if SAF had shoe-horned him into a more defensive role, or the Ji Sung Park role harrassing opposing playmakers?

He would have struggled to perform consistently, and would never have shown the quality he did in the more attacking role SAF actually used him in. Te same is true of most players, if you force them to play a role which requires attributes they don't possess, and doesn't use the attributes they do possess, they will not produce what they are capable of.
