Pogba to Man City
Darren Bent would not be surprised to see Manchester City or Liverpool launch moves for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
The £150million-rated Frenchman is widely expected to depart Old Trafford this summer.
Real Madrid and Juventus are two clubs who are interested in signing Pogba but Bent believes the list of potential suitors would be longer than that if he were available.
And he says he would not be surprised if the likes of Liverpool or City attempted to sign him.
“When someone like a Paul Pogba comes available on the market, and he’s only 26, there’s going to be so many takers,” Bent said on talkSPORT.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if teams like Manchester City come in for him, Liverpool I can see him getting in their team.
“If he’s on top, top form he can get in most teams in the world. Is it a headache that Manchester United are tired of hearing about? He’s been injured for the longest period of time, but yet we’re still talking about him.
“Because he’s not even on the pitch and we’re still talking about him, I wonder maybe if it is best if they part their ways.
“Then everyone can solely focus on Manchester United Football Club – rather than looking for a scapegoat, which is Paul Pogba, for everything that has gone wrong in recent years.”
