Manchester United told sell 'spoiled brat' Pogba after 'extreme' demands - pundit
Frank McAvennie insists Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should tell Paul Pogba to “get lost” amid the latest reports on his Manchester United future.
The former West Ham hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claims the Frenchman isn’t worth the trouble he causes the club.
Pogba, 28, has one year remaining on his current Old Trafford deal after signing a long-term contract when he rejoined the club in 2016.
PSG are reportedly interested in signing the World Cup winner this summer.
Manchester United face the dilemma of either selling Pogba now in a deflated ‘COVID market’ or losing him for nothing next summer.
Their other option is to bow to Pogba’s demand of £500,000 per week wages, as reported by the Daily Star on 17 April.

McAvennie insists Pogba isn’t worth the hassle he is causing the Red Devils and urged Solskjaer to cut his losses.
“He’s been on about going for ages now,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Surely Man United fans are fed up now, the ones I’ve spoken to are.
“He’s a damned good player but he doesn’t do it enough to justify all the problems he’s causing.
“I would get rid of him. Asking for an extreme amount of money like that, it’s not on.
“You see him at the Euros, he is always outstanding for France. You end up thinking ‘where’s that player?’
“Where has he been all season. Ole should tell him to get lost.
“You can’t keep letting him get away with it, he’s been a spoiled brat ever since he got there.”
Pogba made 26 Premier League appearances for Man United last season.
He chipped in with three goals and three assists from central midfield.
