EPL: Mourinho could sell Pogba like Salah, De Bruyne – Fowler


Former Liverpool striker, Robbie Fowler, has said that Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, could offload Paul Pogba in the summer.

Mourinho is believed to have clashed with Pogba in recent weeks and left him on the bench for some crucial clashes, starting the young Scott McTominay instead.

Pogba arrived two years ago for a then record 89million, but Fowler, writing in his Sunday column for the UK Mirror, insists that will not infleuence the former Chelsea boss’ decision.

“Mourinho is his own man. If there is any manager who is going to drop Pogba or Alexis Sanchez after spending so much on them, then it will be him. But even he knows he has to justify his transfer-market decisions.

“I reckon this summer Mourinho will take a hard look at the Pogba situation and think about moving him on.

“That would let him play the system that worked against Liverpool – and still leave him a formidable defensive platform.

“Classic Mourinho, in fact. He got rid of Kevin De Bruyne and Mo Salah. He can do it,” Fowler wrote.
