Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes it is time the club cut their losses on Paul Pogba, saying the Frenchman has been ‘poor in all aspects’ since his £89m arrival in 2016.
Pogba has played just twice since September amid a series of ankle problems and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed last week the World Cup winner was not ‘anywhere near’ a return to first-team training.
Given the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in the centre of the park, as well as the baggage and rumours associated with the Pogba brand, Parker says it is time he moved on, comparing the situation to Romelu Lukaku’s departure last summer.

‘At this moment in time, he is bad for Manchester United,’ Parker, who played for the club from 1991-1996, told Sportsmail.
‘He’s bringing too much negativity to the club. His quality is incredible, but he’s averaged about one performance in 10, that’s how bad he’s been.
‘I think they need to shift on from him now, I see any comeback now as being very, very difficult. He’s been a bad fit all round.
