Former Newcastle United captain Alan Shearer says there is a reason for why Manchester United made improvements without Paul Pogba.

The french superstar facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford as both Real Madrid and Juventus want his signature.

Shearer, now a Premier League pundit, thinks it can have a positive effect for Manchester United if Pogba was to go in the summer.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: «What happens with Paul Pogba is going to be very interesting. Is he going to knuckle down or, with one year left on his contract, are the club going to try to move him on?

«Solskjaer only wants players who want to be there and, to be fair, he has stood up to Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola before.

«With Pogba out injured, it was no coincidence United showed some real improvement before football was shut down. The French midfielder has barely played since the start of the season and that may well influence Solskjaer’s decision.

«My guess is that Solskjaer and the club have already made up their minds – you don’t let a player have a year left on their contract without knowing what you want to do.»
