Manchester United fans have attributed Paul Pogba’s poor performances to his mind being elsewhere amidst rumours Real Madrid want to sign him.
The World Cup winner was highlighted as one of the worst players on the pitch as United lost 2-1 to Wolves on Tuesday night for the second time in the space of a month.
Pogba has been flirting with the idea of signing for Real Madrid, admitting in a press conference whilst on international duty that it would be a “dream” to play for them, fuelling rumours that he was on his way to the Bernabeu.
Rumours were so rife that Solskjaer had to address them in one of his press conferences, claiming the midfielder is happy at Old Trafford.
Many United fans on Twitter aren’t buying it though and after the Frenchman put in a poor shift against Wolves, they began to point the finger towards these rumours.
Here’s what United fans have been saying on Twitter.
Pogba was terrible man, seems to be disconnected now that the Real Madrid rumours have come in.

Is it just me or has anyone noticed that after the “Real Madrid” talk Pogba has failed to turn up

Should united let Pogba go? He seems least bothered to play since flirting with Madrid.

Pogba will have bad games and i accept that. What is not acceptable is not putting any effort in.
Pogba and De Gea want Madrid. Let them go.
Ole needs to strip this team right back and build from scratch around Rashford and the players who want to be at OT

Pogba is begging for that move to Real Madrid. Minimal effort today.
