What Paul Pogba plans to do after Man Utd fan ABUSE following Cardiff defeat
The United midfielder continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford after a below-par season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to keep Pogba at the club – but it appears some sections of the United faithful aren’t feeling the same.
Video footage emerged in the aftermath of Sunday’s defeat to Cardiff, showing the Frenchman being verbally abused by angry fans in the Stretford End.
And according to El Confidencial, Pogba will use this as leverage to ensure he can leave the club in the coming months.
The Spanish publication reports that the former Juventus star will force his way out of United by using Sunday’s confrontation as evidence that he has lost the ‘confidence and support of the stands’.
Pogba may be keen to leave the Premier League strugglers this summer.
But Real Madrid are yet to decide whether they want the midfielder at the Bernabeu or not.
But the United boss has admitted even keeping Pogba this summer won’t guarantee success next season.
“The last couple of months have been extremely hard for the team, the club and for the players,” he said on Sunday.
“To reach the leaders it will take a long time. For ourselves, the short-term focus in the league will be getting into the top four.
“We have got the Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup to go for a trophy because Manchester United can’t go many years without winning a trophy. Jose [Mourinho] won the Europa League last and that is a realistic ambition.
“In the league, the points we are behind the top two, they have been excellent, those two. Absolutely exceptional.
