- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been urged to sell Pogba
- The club's legend Willie Morgan wants Pogba to be sold for Messi to come in
- But the Red Devils might not be able to meet Lionel Messi's release clause
Manchester United legend Willie Morgan has told the club's current gaffer Jose Mourinho to sell Frenchman Paul Pogba next year and use the money to buy Lionel Messi from Barcelona.
The relationship between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho has gone sour this season at Old Trafford, and there are reports that the Frenchman wants to return to Juventus.
Morgan who played 200 games for the Red Devils believes ex Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho has been let down by the current Manchester United squad.
And the 73-year-old has advised the Special One to allow Paul Pogba to leave the club next year and cash in on Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
‘'Mourinho’s buys have been diabolical and the way he wants them to play football, not just now, this is since he came, all that defensive football, hoping for a breakaway – that’s not what I want to watch and it’s not what Manchester United fans want to watch.
‘'He’s brought in [players] who he thought would be alright, they’re not. It’s not for lack of trying from the manager’s point of view. As a manager, if you’re sat there, you’re relying on your players. It’s soul-destroying if they’re not doing it for you because at the end of the day, you’re responsible.
‘'I think Pogba will go because you cannot have that festering behind the scenes. There will be pockets with him, pockets against him and you just can’t have it. Something has got to give and I think he will go. And hopefully, he’ll buy Lionel Messi and then we might have a chance,'' Morgan told Love Sports Radio.
