Parker: Man Utd and Pogba in strong position over planned sale

Paul Pogba has found himself in an ideal position at Manchester United, says Paul Parker.

The former United defender says winning the title and moving on Pogba in the summer would be “a win-win" situation at Old Trafford.

He told Eurosport: “Paul Pogba's recent performances have been reminiscent of the player from Juventus: he is respectful, humble and is not looking for excuses.

“Suddenly he has become a team player again. He's earning the right to play.

“However, let's reserve judgement as we have been here before – Pogba needs to be consistently excellent; great players don't play well the odd game, they have consistency.

“However, this week, at least, Pogba has been - alongside Bruno Fernandes - United's best player.

“If the season was over three games then great. It's quite interesting that his level has spiked as United start to challenge at the top.

“If he wants to leave, there's no better place to showcase yourself than playing for a team that's competing to win a league title.

“It is a win-win if Manchester United finish as champions and Pogba gets a move."
