The Frenchman has been linked with a stunning late move to Barcelona, and Allardyce believes the Red Devils should
let him go
Sam Allardyce believes Manchester United should let Paul Pogba leave Old Trafford if the opportunity comes to sell him on deadline day.
The World Cup-winning midfielder has been linked with a stunning late move to Barcelona, with his agent Mino
Raiola reportedly keen to get him out of Premier League club.
With the transfer deadline rapidly approaching – the summer window closes at 5pm on Thursday – it seems highly unlikely United will allow their £89million record signing to leave without a top class replacement coming
But, stranger things have happened in the world of football.
And with reports claiming Pogba is open to leaving Old Trafford following his not-so-secret falling out with Jose Mourinho, Allardyce has just two words for United chiefs:
“Sell him,” the former England manager told Alan Brazil on Thursday’s Sports Breakfast.
“I don’t think he’s a dressing room boy.
“The only trouble with today is getting in a replacement, letting a player of that size go without any replacements of high quality.
“But, if the reports in the papers are true and whether it’s him or his agent or a bit of both, Sir Alex Ferguson would have just said, ‘see you later’.
“He would have done that. There’s nobody bigger than Man United.”
