MANCHESTER UNITED must keep hold of Paul Pogba beyond the January transfer window – but should sell Romelu Lukaku if they receive any offers for him.
That is the verdict of Sky Sports pundit and former Celtic and Scotland striker Alan McInally.
Pogba’s future at Manchester United was in serious doubt when Jose Mourinho was at the club.
The pair did not see eye to eye and Frenchman Pogba was linked with a January move away.
However, Mourinho has been sacked and replaced by former United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim boss.
McInally is a big fan of Paul Pogba and reckons there will be a big improvement from him in the coming weeks.
But he admits Lukaku is not his cup of tea and would see him at the first opportunity.
“Pogba’s not going anywhere. Lukaku might,” McInally said.
“I think it would be a bigger problem if they got rid of Pogba.
“Keep Pogba all day long, he’s a player.
“I’m keeping Pogba, I’m selling Lukaku in a heartbeat.
“They can get as much money for him as they want, I’m not letting Pogba go anywhere.
“I think he’s a good player. I think he’ll be in the next four or five weeks different class for Manchester United.
“Lukaku – no, I’m not having him.”
Lukaku has scored just six goals in the Premier League so far this season.
The Belgian missed Wednesday’s match at home to Huddersfield on compassionate leave.
