Paul Pogba “regrets” returning to Manchester United as he argues with Jose Mourinho over his best position.
And that has left former Old Trafford star Paul Ince convinced the midfielder could leave this summer.
Pogba, the Reds’ record £89million signing, is becoming increasingly disillusioned at playing as a deep-lying midfielder according to reports in France.
“If what’s being said about Pogba is true, that he regrets joining United, then I’d be disappointed, but not surprised,” said Ince, as odds were slashed on the player going in the summer.
“I can understand why Pogba might feel irritated with the position Mourinho currently has him playing in.
“He likes to roam, he likes to attack. He wasn’t signed to be a holding midfield player and that’s clearly not what he enjoys or is best at. So why does he insist on playing him there?”
“[January-signing forward] Alexis Sanchez wants to be on the ball and wants to be part of the action. You can’t have both him and Pogba roaming across the pitch, because then you’ll lose the shape of your team.
“The signals that are coming from Pogba is that he’s not happy and if he doesn’t feel like he fits in, then I could see him leaving in the summer.”
