​Rio blasts Man Utd for handling of Pogba contract situation

Former defender Rio Ferdinand has slammed Manchester United with respect to Paul Pogba's transfer situation.

The Frenchman is likely to leave the club in the summer on a free transfer when his contract expires.

Pogba, who has been at United since signing for £90 million in 2016, has shown no indication of wanting to renew with the Red Devils.

Asked about Pogba, United legend Ferdinand stated on his FIVE YouTube channel: "Business has been done poorly at the club.

"We shouldn't be allowing players to get down to this stage in their contracts. I don't think it should happen.

"Economically, to let someone you've spent £80m, £90m on, plus wages, leave on a free transfer is absolutely criminal. Twice, it's like they've pulled our pants down twice."
