I want Paul Pogba to stay at Manchester United – Fred
Manchester United midfielder Fred has begged his teammate Paul Pogba to stay at the club despite transfer rumors.
The World Cup winner has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford for the last two years.
However, Fred desperately wants his fellow midfielder to stay and help boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer build a Premier League title-winning side.
“Pogba is a great player. The people who are here on a daily basis with him know that,” Fred said before adding.
“Everyone who watched the World Cup and watched his football knows that he’s a great player.”
“And for sure we want him to stay. Because he will add us a lot. He’s a guy who has an immense quality, he’s a strong player for the Premier League.”
“He knows how to play the Premier League. So I’m sure I want him to stay because I’m sure he will help us a lot,” he added.
Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with a £100m move for Pogba who has been out for much of this campaign with injuries.
“We’re in the same position, but the more quality players on the team, the better. You will not build a team with 11 players. You need a strong squad.”
“So I really hope that he stays, and if he stays, I’m sure he will be a very strong reinforcement for us next season,” he added.
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has clashed with United boss Solskjaer and it seems clear the Frenchman will move on, possibly this summer.
