Man Utd have to keep hold of best player Pogba, says former manager David Moyes

EX-MANCHESTER UNITED manager David Moyes has insisted that the club have to everything in their power to keep hold of Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman was heavily linked with a summer transfer to Real Madrid after publicly declaring his interest in seekinga “new challenge”.

Paul Pogba is Manchester United’s best player according to former manager David Moyes

The 26-year-old ended up staying at Old Trafford but sparked further speculation around his future after he was photographed in Dubai talking to Zinedine Zidane by a hotel pool.

But Moyes, who managed the Red Devils during the 2013/14 season, believes his old side cannot afford to lose the World Cup winner.

He told talkSPORTs Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: Pogba is still Manchester Uniteds best midfield player.

He could probably play for any team in the world, certainly in Europe. Hed get a game for any team.

Im not always sure hes a player whos consistent and makes the difference all the time.

For the profile hes got, youre hoping he makes the difference. He doesnt always make the difference, but do I think he should stay at Manchester United? Yes, I do.

I dont think he wins games like (Lionel) Messi does for Barcelona or (Cristiano) Ronaldo does for Juventus, but I still think hes a really talented player. He has got a lot to give.

Watching him at his best was when he was at Juventus, he played a little bit further forward, he got nearer the box more often.

If you were picking the Manchester United team, Pogba would be in their midfield at the moment, thats for sure.

Pogba has been absent for six of Uniteds last eight games due to an ankle injury and has already been ruled out of the Europa League clash with Partizan Belgrade.

But the former Juventus star has gone on a social media blitz to assure fans he is doing all he can to return as quickly as possible.

Pogba posted a video of himself working out on an exercise bike while in Dubai before telling fans he was “almost there” with a picture on Instagram.
