Man Utd legend Neville: Don't keep Pogba against his will

Gary Neville says Manchester United should sell Paul Pogba if he wants to leave.

The World Cup winner has admitted publicly that he wants to seek a new challenge after a disappointing season with United.

Real Madrid and Juventus have been linked, and club legend Neville doesn't see any reason why they shouldn't cash in.

He told Sky Sports on the exit talk: "They don't have to keep any player.

"Manchester United are a better team when Paul Pogba plays but if players don't want to be at the club - that doesn't mean Pogba, he may want to be at the club - you have to get everybody onside and aligned with where you're going.

"Ultimately, that's the first thing Ole had to do - to work out who was going to be ready for the club moving forward.

"I'm still unsure on many players. I see the speculation on Sky Sports News and online and it looks like it could be moving all the time.

"You've got to get players in before you let them go because being armed with the money makes you vulnerable.

"For United, it's all about timing and manipulating and manoeuvring to a point where they know they're going to get players in before letting some go.

"Otherwise they'll become very easy to target in terms of people bumping the money up, which I'm sure they are already."
