Man United’s Paul Pogba has broken his only promise to Manchester United fans

Man United’s Paul Pogba will currently be a free agent in the summer and he’s failed to deliver on his promise to fans.

On the night of August 8, 2016, Manchester United revealed the world-record purchase of Paul Pogba for a world-record sum of £89 million.

After leaving Manchester United in 2012, the midfielder had a meteoric rise at Juventus.

He was already regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world at the age of 24, with 34 goals and 40 assists in four years at Turin.

At United, he was regarded as the ultimate signing. 

Jose Mourinho desired him because of his commercial appeal and the possibility of a comeback.

Pogba couldn’t help but express his excitement at being back in Manchester to MUTV as the news of his return went viral on social media.

 “There’s no words, to be honest, there’s no words,” Pogba said, with a wide grin across his face.

“I just came back to Carrington. It was like I’d just come back home. I just went for a holiday, looks like I went for a holiday. The thing with me is I only think about the pitch. I want to do great, I want to be one of the best, I want to win titles,” he added.

“I want to achieve things and that’s all, that’s why I came here, just to do this, to become one of the best and to win titles because I know this club has to win titles. I just focus on this and that’s it. I’m just ready to go and work on that and just kill it.”

While Pogba said all the right things when he returned six years ago, the truth is that he hasn’t kept his promises since then.

His stay at United was a disaster. Pogba wanted to win trophies with United, and he aspired to win the Premier League and compete for the Champions League, but he’s only been a part of victories in the Europa League and the League Cup.

At United, success is measured in silverware, and Pogba has yet to win the major titles he desired in 2016.

United believed they had signed a complete player who could dominate the center of the pitch for the next decade at Old Trafford, but the truth has been sobering.

Pogba’s skill has not been well consistent. His inherent talent places him among the finest players on the planet, but he hasn’t been used to his full potential at United. Only France has had the opportunity to do so.

United fans’ dissatisfaction with Man United’s Paul Pogba has been increased by his agent, Mino Raiola, throughout the years.

Raiola isn’t one to shy away from the spotlight, and his public remarks on Pogba have been concerning.

Pogba’s popularity has suffered as a result of such remarks, and he has also struggled on the field.

If Pogba was helping United compete for titles, which he isn’t, the clamor would be simpler to ignore. Pogba appeared to be a true world-class player at the start of the season, but he began to slide inexorably.

He then suffered a thigh injury while playing for France in November and hasn’t played since.

Pogba returned to full training earlier than planned last week, but he’ll only have a few months left on his contract at Old Trafford by the time he’s back on the field.

For the second time, his days at the club appear to be numbered.

For months, United has been discussing the prospect of extending Pogba’s contract, but little movement has been achieved.

That means Pogba may leave on a free transfer on July 1, ten years after he last left on a free transfer.

Pogba talked about winning important trophies with United, but he might depart in a few months with two titles that will be a footnote in the club’s history in years to come; they are insignificant in comparison to United’s prior triumphs.

Pogba hasn’t achieved the success that everyone expected at United, and it’s time to let him leave.
