Paul Pogba: Astonishing results as Manchester United fans vote on whether World Cup winner should be sold
A vote asking whether fans want Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United has seen a section of the club’s support call on the Red Devils to sell the World Cup winner.
A poll conducted by the Manchester Evening News saw 60% of almost 2,000 respondents declare that they wanted the Frenchman out.
It comes after Pogba, 25, riled supporters by refusing to end speculation over a move to Barcelona and a falling out with Jose Mourinho.
“There was a lot of talk, but it was just like that, I’m under contract in Manchester,” Pogba said when asked in a Sky Germany interview why a move to Barca didn’t materialise in the summer.
“My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I’m playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months?”
And it seems his comments are the final straw for some fans, with three-fifths of the United supporters polled wanting to see him sold.
Despite his ‘who knows what will happen in the next few months?’ comment, Pogba said after France’s 1-1 draw with Germany in Munich that it wasn’t him creating the speculation.
“Rumours are rumours, but it’s not me who is talking,” he told reporters. “I’m trying to work on myself physically.
“I got back late [from the World Cup] so I’m trying to perform as well as possible.
“I’m just trying to do my job. For the rest there will always be talk.”
Pogba has played in all of United’s Premier League games so far this season, scoring from the spot in two of them but missing a penalty in Sunday’s win over Burnley .
