Paul Pogba urged to leave Manchester United

Paul Pogba of Manchester United suffers an injury during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford on October 24, 2020 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Paul Pogba has been urged to leave Manchester United by former Old Trafford star Paul Ince.

Pogba had to settle for a place on the bench once again in Saturday's goalless draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The French midfielder was brought on shortly before the hour mark - but it was the third game running that he has been among the substitutes.

Pogba also missed out on a place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting line-up in the Champions League group win at Paris Saint-Germain and the Premier League victory at Newcastle United.

United extended the World Cup winner's contract until 2022 earlier this month but speculation has continued about his future at the club.

He has been heavily linked with Real Madrid, with the player himself admitting it would be a "dream" move.

Now United old boy Ince has had his say on Pogba's situation, suggesting it could be time to move on.

" Paul Pogba should be on the pitch, this (Chelsea) is a big, big game," he told beIN Sports.

"For him to be sitting on the bench and watching, with no disrespect, (Scott) McTominay and Fred playing in his position, I would be saying: 'I must be doing something wrong if I can’t get in this team'.

"I know he has had an injury and he might be trying to bring him on a little later on, but I think it is time to move on. He has come out in the last two weeks and said he wants to join Real Madrid.

"I think his performances since he has been here have been inconsistent. Paul Pogba is a world-class player and when he moved to Old Trafford I thought: 'Great'.

"But all he has done is been a problem. The fans have gone against him and now Bruno Fernandes has come in and shown what you need to do to be a Man United player.

"He has performed consistently and Paul Pogba hasn’t done that and that is why he finds himself on the bench."
