Paul Scholes has questioned why Paul Pogba would want to leave Manchester United as the midfielder continues to stall on signing a new deal at Old Trafford.
The 28-year-old has been on superb form this season with seven assists in as many games in the Premier League, but he is yet to agree a deal to extend his contract and is therefore able to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January,
Pogba expressed his desire for a ‘new challenge’ back in 2019 but has enjoyed his football more under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the last two seasons.
The World Cup winner has blown hot and cold with United fans ever since his £89m return to the club in 2016, hitting 38 goals in 215 appearances at Old Trafford.
And United legend Scholes can’t understand why he’d want to leave as he branded other leagues as inferior to the Premier League.
He told the Webby & O’Neill show: “Everybody is a little bit unsure because he doesn’t do it week in and week out. I think there is a big a debate. You’d probably say half of people want him the other half wouldn’t be that bothered if he went.
“I think the middle of the pitch is a little bit of a problem for us. If he is on song and plays to his ability like he does for France every time he seems to play for them then you’ve got to try and keep him.
‘Why would you want to try and leave England? Real Madrid’s been spoken about, but the Spanish league has gone. Real Madrid and Barcelona are a complete mess.
“PSG might be the best option but England is the best now. If you look at the top four teams they’ve got all the best players, best managers are here so why would he want to leave? I don’t get that.
‘But again it’s up to the club. If they want to keep him then great, if they don’t we’ll say goodbye.”
