Usain Bolt sends transfer message to Manchester United about Paul Pogba
Olympics 100 meters record holder Usain Bolt has urged Manchester United not to sell Paul Pogba but instead build the team around him if they want a return to glory days.
Following a poor start to the season Pogba hit top gear with the installment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager, scoring eight goals and registering five assists in the Norwegian's first nine Premier League games. The Frenchman, however, suffered a dip in form towards the end of the season as United finished the campaign outside of the top four.
Despite rumors linking Pogba to Real Madrid, Bolt insisted that United need to keep the 26-year-old at the club, "Pogba and Lukaku should definitely stay. I am a massive fan of Pogba. They need to build the team around him. If you watch him when he is at Juventus and for France, he is outstanding because he has good strikers and good people who know how he plays and how he runs off the ball. He is a great passer.
"Listen, it doesn’t matter about who someone cuts their hair or whatever. As long as when he comes on the field he shows up. As I said if you build the right team around him, give him the right strikers to play with, who understand how he plays, then he will do great."
