Lukaku swapped the Red Devils for Serie A giants Inter Milan in August, moving to Italy in a £73million deal after he fell out of favour with Solskjaer last season.
However, Hartson believes United should instead have got rid of Pogba instead of Lukaku.
The Frenchman was constantly linked with an Old Trafford exit over the summer, with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane making it clear that he wanted to bring the 26-year-old to the Spanish capital.
Hartson told the Sky Sports’ The Debate: “I still think Man United have got an awful lot of problems.
“You look at Pogba, for me I think he probably sold the wrong player.
“He did at Everton, three years consistently, at Man United he was up in the 18s, 20s.
“I think Pogba right now, everybody’s saying ‘he’s showing a good attitude, he’s showing a great attitude’ – well that’s a gimme isn’t it?
“To show a good attitude playing for Manchester United.
“I think he’s playing almost at 75 per cent, I really do, and that’s not helping [Scott] McTominay who’s trying to make his mark in the game.
“A young Scottish midfielder, gets around, up and down.”
