• Lee Sharpe urges Manchester United to keep Paul Pogba
  • Pogba appears to be happy staying at Old Trafford
  • The Red Devils could be inheriting a problem if they let Pogba leave

One player expected to be on the radar of several teams after this season is Paul Pogba.

The 28-year-old midfielder is headed towards the final year of his deal with Manchester United, and rumors are swirling that the Red Devils may consider pitches for the French midfielder.

Pogba will hit the open market in 2022, and unless the Red Devils work to try and keep him, he is likely to be headed towards another team.

But in the opinion of former English national player Lee Sharpe, the Red Devils may want to reconsider that move and keep Pogba at Old Trafford instead.

Sharpe admitted that he is a big Pogba fan, likely one of the reasons why he wants to see the Frenchman stay at Old Trafford.

However, he is aware that it will all depend on negotiations and if Pogba wants to stay with Manchester United.

The 49-year-old added that it would also save the Red Devils time looking for a replacement. Rather than get into that, keeping Pogba would make life easier for head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

For now, there is no clarity on what Pogba has in mind. However, he did mention in January that he was focusing on the current season and planned to discuss his future with the Red Devils.

Several clubs have been linked to the French footballer such as Real Madrid and Juventus.

Aside from that, it appears Pogba feels that he still has a lot to offer for the Red Devils. That should be good news for Solskjaer although it may all boil down to how much money is on the table.

Pogba rejoined Manchester United from Juventus for $123 million in 2016.

“Everybody knows that I have one year left and I’m going to speak with the club and see what’s going on,” Pogba stated. “I am on contract, I am here, and I am enjoying myself.

Pogba has dealt with injuries this season but has managed to contribute when Solskjaer calls on him. He has five goals and seven assists to his credit so far.

He is also one of the reasons why the Red Devils are second in the English Premier League at the moment and reached the Europa League semifinals.

Given his contributions, Pogba could be a vital loss if Manchester United lets him go.
