‘It might be time for Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United’, says Stuart Pearce on talkSPORT

Stuart Pearce believes Manchester United could cash in on Paul Pogba this summer, admitting it could be time for the World Cup winner to ‘move on’.

The midfielder has come under fire from fans this season for his inconsistent form and apparent lack of effort in recent games, with United suffering their worst run of results in more than 50 years.

There have even been claims he is ‘tearing apart’ the United dressing room, and that his agent Mino Raiola cancelled a meeting with the club where they were due to discuss a new contract.

Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid, although manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he ‘thinks’ the Frenchman will still be at Old Trafford next season.

But Pearce believes the club may well cash in on the £89million signing in the upcoming transfer window while his stock is still high.

“They’ve got a lot of money tied up in that player and only the club will know whether they think he’s value for money,” the former Manchester City manager told the Sports Breakfast.

“Depending on what the offer is, sometimes you just have say it’s not worked and it’s time to move him on.
