Pogba leaves United players’ WhatsApp group
Ralf Rangnick admitted Paul Pogba had likely played his last game for Manchester United following an injury against Liverpool, and it would appear the Frenchman is already saying his goodbyes.
Pogba has told his United team-mates he would be leaving this summer, with the Mirror also reporting he has left the squad’s group chat on WhatsApp. An injury against Liverpool on the weekend has ruled Pogba out for the remainder of the season, and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, interim boss Rangnick conceded the Frenchman may well have played his last game for the club. Pogba has offers to join both Real Madrid and PSG as a free agent, likewise Barcelona.
A Guardian article on Monday said “we should view Pogba wasting his prime years at United with sadness, not scorn, and that pretty much sums it up.”
Meanwhile, new United manager Erik ten Hag will hold virtual talks with each player over the next three weeks, including players like Pogba who are out of contract – the Mirror reports.
Ten Hag wants to gauge his captaincy options, as well as which players no longer want to play at Old Trafford. The desire to speak with the players soon will allow the Dutchman to start his overhaul as soon as possible, despite the fact he does not officially take charge until June. – Eurosport
