Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has a “big decision” to make on Paul Pogba’s future, according to Rio Ferdinand.
Pogba failed to make much of an impact on Tuesday, as United went crashing out of the Champions League with a 3-0 defeat at Barcelona.
The France international has been linked with a summer move to Real Madrid, following the return of his compatriot Zinedine Zidane and Ferdinand feels Pogba could still depart this summer.
“I think there’s a big decision in the summer. I think it’s up to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“There’s been things in the media mooted that he might want to leave or he’s fancying a trip abroad but I think you build the team around a player of this calibre.
“He’s got 16 goals this season, albeit six of them penalties – but the output in terms of goals has shown a marked improvement since Ole’s come in. So that’s a thing I’m sure he’ll take into account.”
“To shift blame on him from a game like today, I think no one’s come out of this with any flying colours.
“It’s going to be over the time that Ole’s been here and Ole will have to judge: ‘Do I build the team around him and the ability that he’s got and the attributes that he has?’ or if Paul wants to leave.
“I would keep him here because Man United, they need stars, they need players who can turn games and he can do that,” the former United defender said on BT Sport.
