The French international is the center of attention after the comments of his agent Mino Raiola
Jamie Carragher has urged Manchester United to “get rid” of Paul Pogba following the latest inflammatory comments from the player’s agent.
With United gearing up for a decisive UEFA Champions League game with RB Leipzig on Tuesday, agent Mino Raiola threatened to divert attention from the game saying: “I can say it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United.”
Former Red Devils defender Gary Neville criticized Raiola for the time of his comments, and Carragher took aim at the player and his agent, urging the club to move on.
When asked in Sky sports For his views on how United should respond, Carragher said: “Get rid of it. I’ve been saying this for 12 months.
“OMG, he’s the most overrated player I’ve ever seen.”
Carragher feels that Pogba would have been well aware of what Raiola was planning to say and did not hold back with his opinions.
“I think they are both a shame,” he said. “We will all look at the agent now and say ‘ask Pogba what he thinks.’
“Agents in this age are not just agents, they are a parent, the best friend, the financial advisor, they book vacations, they go together.
“He will be Pogba’s best friend, so Pogba will be very aware of what would come out of his mouth. And if it wasn’t, he should fire his agent.”
Although Carragher feels that United should sell, he is not sure where the French international will go, saying he would be “stunned” if Barcelona or Real Madrid intervened.
“I don’t know where he’s going to go,” Carragher said. said. “Who is going to have it?
“Manchester United want to get rid of him. Make no mistake. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been playing Scott McTominay and Fred opposite him and put him on [against West Ham] while resting players.
“There are only two better clubs than Man United, and they are Barcelona and Real Madrid. By better, I mean the players you can understand they are going to. [Cristiano] Ronaldo goes from Manchester United to Real Madrid. Everyone sees Barcelona and Real Madrid as the pinnacle of club football.
“There is no chance in the world that Real Madrid or Barcelona will buy him. I would be dumbfounded if they replace him.
“Maybe there is something French with [Zinedine] Zidane. But I wouldn’t go near him. “
