Manchester United and Paul Pogba have both improved in terms of their big-game performances in recent weeks, with the 3-2 win at Manchester City and the 2-1 Wembley win over Tottenham the highlights.
Their respective form against the lesser sides still needs work and there is weight in the argument that they are causally linked but one more major performance – against Chelsea in the FA Cup final later this month – would make this season into a success.
That continued inconsistency from the French playmaker may well convince Mourinho to part company with him when the window opens.
The links have drawn a mixed reviews from United fans, with some happy to sell him at the price but others not willing to give up on their most expensive signing…
Man united what an absolute joke of a club
