'I want to see Pogba with Bruno'

English Premier League

Manchester United have been urged to keep Paul Pogba to pair him up with the Red Devils' newest sensation Bruno Fernandes.

Pogba continues to be linked with a move with away from the Manchester outfit, with Juventus and Real Madrid reportedly still keen.

The Frenchman has been out injured since December 2019, although his absence has been softened by the arrival of Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window.

“They need to sort out the Paul Pogba situation because he’s such a good player, and when he’s on his game he’s unreal,” former United trainee Jonathan Greening told Grand National.

“I’d like to see him back fit playing with Bruno Fernandes, leaving Scott McTominay or Fred sitting in. Let those two [Pogba and Fernandes] play together, and they’ll bounce off each other really well.

“If Paul Pogba stays, commits himself, he’s happy and fit and wants to play there (at United) it will be immense for the team and a massive boost.”

Although United are fifth in the Premier League standings, 37 points behind league leaders Manchester City, they had been in the midst of an improved run of form before the suspension of play due to coronavirus, with an 11-match undefeated run representing a significant improvement upon their previous unpredictable fortunes.
