Paul Pogba has been in fine form for Manchester United in recent games, and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have found a way for the France star to thrive alongside Bruno Fernandes.

However, former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly has told Pogba to leave Manchester United. The Chelsea legend claims Pogba will be a better player and fulfill his true potential outside of Old Trafford.

According to Desailly, Manchester United do not have the right infrastructure for Pogba. The World Cup winner has often come under criticism since moving to Manchester United, and is often being linked with an exit, and Desailly has now urged him to leave the club.

Asked if Pogba had fulfilled his potential, Desailly said: “No, not yet, not yet, but not especially because he’s not committed.

“Probably because the elements around him are not fitting with his quality, his state of mind.

“He needs a good city. He needs a good team who play for him. He needs a coach who understands him.

“[Didier] Deschamps readjusted Pogba during the World Cup. He changed his system to 4-2-3-1 for Pogba.

“Out of four elements to make Pogba the best… if only two of the elements are there it’s not enough for him to express himself.

“There is two out of four [at Manchester United] so probably he has to go somewhere else to gain an extra one to potentially be able to show that consistency and that talent that he has and shine in the football world.”
