• Pogba unlikely to move out of Old Trafford
  • Pogba transfer plans delayed
  • Ex-teammate wants more consistency from Pogba

Paul Pogba is one of the players expected to return for Manchester United when the club resumes its season on June 19. The Red Devils will face Tottenham in the resumption of play but there are issues up in the air with regards to the commitment of the 27-year-old football player. Regardless, Pogba may have no choice but to take the whole thing professionally with potential transfer moves holding low chances.

It has been a tough season for the French footballer who has been out since September. He underwent ankle surgery in January and originally held low chances of returning. That was until the COVID-19 pandemic forced a halt to the season, delaying games for roughly three months. With the added time off, injured players were able to use the lull to rehab and recover. Pogba is one of those players after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced that the 27-year-old was fit to play once the season restarts, The Guardian reported.

However, it has not been a smooth season for Solskjaer and the camp of Pogba. Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, is not exactly happy at the way his client is being handled on social media. Solskjaer did not engage and said he would rather speak directly to Raniola instead. Since that issue, Raiola claims that all is well between him and the Red Devils manager.

Regardless of whether the row has been fixed or not, it remains that there is some friction between the two camps. Hence, most know that the next thing following that is a potential transfer. Pogba could test the market and see which club would take a chance on him. There could be takers but he still needs to show he is worth the investment. His expected return is a start but the French footballer will need to adjust. He will have to find a way to adjust with the current guns, notably Bruno Fernandes. Fernandes arrived in January, added firepower that United sorely needs.

While Pogba could easily exit, there are several factors in play. One is that most teams are dealing with financial difficulties. The 27-year-old is unlikely to get a good deal from other teams at this point, possibly until next season. Hence, he needs to find a way to survive and prove his stock.

One thing he needs to work on is the consistency of play. Pogba has gotten his share of criticism. Some believe he needs to work on being consistent if he wants to be considered a world-class player. Such was voiced by his former teammate, Ander Herrera via The Athletic.

"If you want to become the best midfielder in the world, it is about consistency. You have to do it day in, day out. He is a good guy. He wants to do it. He does train well. He has to do it every day,” Herrera said.
