Former Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has insisted that Paul Pogba has a ‘big future’ at Old Trafford amid the ongoing speculation of him heading for a summer exit.
The Frenchman has endured a stop-start campaign, which has been overshadowed by critics but he has still proved his worth with a couple of match-winning performance in the big games.
Earlier last week, Pogba refused to rule out the possibility of a summer exit from Manchester United, but Carrick has stressed that the 25-year-old remains a key performer for United as they progress forward.
“It’s a very silly question, really,” he said. “Of course he’s got a future, he’s a big player for us, he’s at a great age, he’s got his peak years ahead of him, so it’s not something I’d give a second thought to, to be honest.”
The talk of Pogba leaving the club appears somewhat surprising given he had a relatively good season with six goals and a further 12 assists across all competitions. Nevertheless, his showing was not always consistent and this is something he may have to improve on next term.
The Frenchman has previously highlighted that Carrick had a major influence on his style of play and now that the 36-year-old is expected to join the backroom staff, Pogba can hopefully take in more pieces of information to become a reliable performer from the centre of the park.
