Man Utd warned Paul Pogba will be a ‘huge loss’ if he completes summer transfer

Paul Pogba will be a huge loss to the Premier League if he quits Manchester United this summer.

That is the view of Everton star Djibril Sidibe, who insists fans love to watch the midfielder in action.

Full-back Sidibe was a teammate of Pogba in France’s World Cup side in 2018 and faces a United side still missing the injured star at Goodison Park today.

Speculation about Pogba’s future has been rife for months with links to Juventus and Real Madrid not going away.

The Frenchman re-joined the Red Devils from the Old Lady in 2016 for a then world record fee of £89m but his return has not gone to plan.

And he has hardly featured this season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United have struggled for form.

As a result he finally looks set to leave Old Trafford in this summer’s transfer window.

But Sidibe, on a season-long loan from Monaco, says: “I think if Paul does move to pastures new then it would be a real loss, a genuine loss to the English game.

“Paul is the sort of guy you want to see him, he's a real engaging person. People love to see him and love to hear what he's got to say.

“Of course, mostly they love to see him performing at the highest possible level and at the top of his game.

“As players, we always want to play against the best that other teams have got to offer.

“We like playing against him and obviously fans like to watch him too.”
