Pogba would prefer to join Zinedine Zidane’s side , according to the same source , but Sharpe , who made 193 appearances for United between 1988 and 1996 believes the club should make it a priority to hang onto the Frenchman long term.
“I’d like the club to keep him , I think he could be an absolute United legend , ” Sharpe told Sky Sports News. “I think he’s one of the best players they’ve got at the club.
“He’s world class on his day. I know at times he doesn’t do that for 90 minutes and often enough but I think if they were to build a team around him and bring a few players in that can play around him and get on his wavelength I think he could be a sensation for United.
“The only thing is if Paul Pogba has decided that he wants to leave then there’s not a lot you can do about that if you’ve got an unhappy player.
“I don’t think he’s as distracting and a bad influence in the dressing room as people make out. I think the players quite like him to be fair , I don’t think that’s the issue.
“I think it’s whether Paul Pogba wants to stay at Manchester United.”In the current situation when they’re re-building and they’re not really challenging for leagues it’s a question he needs to ask himself and whether he wants to go elsewhere and look for that.
“But he could be a massive part of the re-build. They could build a team around him and he could be a United legend for years to come.”
