Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince feels that it is time for the club to sell Paul Pogba, claiming that he would not get into their current starting lineup.

Paul Ince has urged Manchester United to "get rid" of Paul Pogba at the end of the season in order to end "the circus" surrounding the player.

Pogba's future has repeatedly been called into question over the past couple of years amid links with Real Madrid and former club Juventus.

The World Cup winner has struggled for form and fitness this term, featuring just eight times in all competitions, and Ince believes that it is time for United to cut their losses.

"If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to take the club forward, to build and to instil the 'United Way' back into the team, then Pogba's actions don't reflect that," he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"It's a shame, because he could've been a great player for the club, but he isn't a great player at the moment. Ultimately, he's a distraction and his behaviour impacts and damages the rest of the team.

"Now, if he was performing out of his skin every week and changing games, you could forgive him for his behaviour even when he's being a nightmare, but he isn't, so why bother? If he's not performing, just let him go, get rid.

"The decision needs to be made, and quickly, because we can't have another season of the Pogba circus. He wouldn't even get in the side at the moment."

Pogba is hoping to have recovered from injury when football's coronavirus suspension comes to an end.
