Jamie Carragher urges Manchester United to ditch Paul Pogba and David De Gea if they continue to stall over new contracts
Jamie Carragher says Manchester United should ‘get rid’ of Paul Pogba and David De Gea if they continue to ‘mess around’ over new contracts.
De Gea’s deal runs out in 2020, while World Cup winning midfielder Pogba sees his contract up in 2021.
The duo are widely considered United’s star players – but Carragher insists the club could do without them.
Ahead of their shocking 4-0 defeat to Everton, the former Liverpool defender told Sky Sports: “When I was at Liverpool we weren’t at a team at the top winning things, and you’d have a great player, Stevie Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Luis Suarez, and you think you can’t lose these players.

“I think about that with some of the United players, it feels like (David) De Gea’s messing around with the contract and (Paul) Pogba’s the same.
“(Anthony) Martial’s just signed one right now, there is this idea that these players can’t leave your club and it will all fall apart, it’s Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world and you’re not exactly pulling up trees with them anyway!
“Just make a decision, be a big club, make a proper decision.
“Get someone else, its Manchester United. Never forget how big the club is and the power that they’ve got.
“Don’t ever let these players dictate to the club about signing a contract, showing a poor attitude. Get rid of them.”
