Pogba rejoined Manchester United in 2016 after four years at Juventus in a team record $116 million deal but he struggled to showcase his best form on a regular basis.
The 26-year-old led Manchester United in goals and assists in all competitions last season with 16 goals and 11 assists, which looks like a great campaign but a midfielder leading your team in goals isn’t exactly a good sign.
Paul Pogba attracted much of the blame for the overall performance of Manchester United since the moment he returned, which is unfair, as he has shown flashes of brilliance at times but his inconsistency and tendency to disappear in big games hurt the Red Devils on more than one occasion.
Manchester United missed out on the UEFA Champions League again and according to a recent report on The Independent, Pogba is ‘crazy’ about playing for Real Madrid, especially now that his compatriot and idol Zinedine Zidane is coaching the team again.
Pogba is a world class midfielder and he was expected to answer the midfield issues that Manchester United has had since Paul Scholes retired for the first time and while he does have enough skills to produce exquisite performances, it might be time to accept that the Premier League might not be where he’ll give a team the best out of him consistently.
