Paul Scholes has stated he doesn’t think Paul Pogba will be a ‘big loss’ to Manchester United should he leave the club in the future.
Pogba, who re-joined United in 2016 for a then world-record fee of £89million, was rumoured to be keen to leave Old Trafford in the summer, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona courting the midfielder.
Now Scholes, who retired in 2013 after spending his career at United, does not believe the Red Devils will miss Pogba’s influence, and he has not rated his consistent form during the past three years.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Scholes said: ‘I think it’s quite clear he wants to leave the club.
‘He wanted to move to Real Madrid [in the summer] and for whatever reason it didn’t happen.
‘If they ask him to stay for a year then we’ll see what happens. But I don’t think it will be a big loss to United [if he does go].
‘At the end of the day his form hasn’t been great anyway over the last three or three years he’s been there.
