Paul Pogba to Manchester City, divides opinion between pundits

Paul Pogba returned to his former club, Manchester United, on a five-year contract in 2016. It was for a then-record for the highest football transfer fee at €105 million (£89.3 million). Things have not been as expected to say the least for him with the Red Devils. With his contract set to expire, he is set to leave the club as a free agent this summer.

Speaking about the prospect of the Frenchman joining City, former Liverpool midfielder, Jamie Redknapp said, “It would be an incredible move. And one that if I’m honest I haven’t seen coming. But you have to weigh it up; it’s a free transfer, he’ll have a point to prove because he’s taken a lot of stick while he’s been at Manchester United.

“I’ve always watched Pep Guardiola in games between United and City, and he’s always gone over to him and had dialogue. He obviously respects him as a player.

“I think it’s a no-brainer. He scores goals and adds so much to the team, when you also factor they will be losing Fernandinho this summer.”

Paul Pogba doesn’t work hard enough: Jamie Carragher

However, Redknapp’s former teammate Jamie Carragher was against the move.”I wouldn’t go anywhere near him,” he argued. “You win the league every year, you get 95 to 100 points every year, but Paul Pogba doesn’t work hard enough or as much as these other City players.

“Pep might be able to get it out of him, and there’s no doubt he’s got ability, but when you see the other creative players in the City squad – Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva – these are brilliant players who don’t stop running and don’t stop working from minute one to minute 90.

“That’s what makes Man City what they are. They’re a great team, brilliant manager with great individuals… I’m not doubting his quality but he doesn’t work hard enough. If anyone says he gives 100 per cent in every game, that’s a lie.”
