Liverpool legend, Jamie Caragher, has urged Manchester United to find Paul Pogba a new club, following his struggles at the club.

The Frenchman is yet to maintain a good run of form since joining from Juventus in 2014, despite costing close to £90 million.

So far this season, Pogba has been limited to just five starts at United, as he continues to try to find his best form, with Fred and Scott McTominay the preferred options in midfield.

France national team boss, Didier Deschamps recently lamented Pogba’s situation at Old Trafford, saying the 27 year old cannot be happy with his present state of things for him at the club.

But Caragher believes Deschamps is wrong, and Pogba isn’t as great as he’s made out to seem.

Speaking recently on talkSPORT, the former defender said, “No, not really. In some ways, everybody is unhappy with his position, because the fact we’re still talking about, ‘What is Paul Pogba’s best position?’, when he’s been at the club for four years.

“I think that tells you he’s never done well enough in any position or tactical set-ups, that different managers have had at Manchester United. When I look at it now, would I pick Paul Pogba in the Manchester United team? I wouldn’t.

“He came with a huge transfer fee, but I don’t think he’s a great player. When I say that, I’ve said it a few times on Monday Night Football, people say, ‘well he’s won the World Cup’.

“I get that, I understand that, but he’s been in our league, when he came in I wanted him to have the impact of what [Frank] Lampard had at Chelsea, what Stevie [Gerrard] had with Liverpool, what Yaya Toure had with Man City.

“Those players drive their teams to titles and European Cups. And when you come to Manchester United as the world record transfer fee – and I know you could say the other players aren’t great or this manager or that – when you’re that man that is seen as the man to take United to the next level.

He added, “And United going to the next level is going back to winning titles or European Cups.

“People may say that is too much pressure to put on one man. But that’s what we were told was coming. This package, the most expensive player in the world, he can do everything in midfield.

“He’s played for Juventus, he’s playing in Champions League finals for them. And it just hasn’t happened for him.

“And if it was me, I’d be looking to move him on.”
