Mike Phelan says Paul Pogba is not the finished article and has urged him to stay and realise his ambitions with Manchester United. Pogba finally appears to be settled at Old Trafford following a turbulent spell under the leadership of former boss Jose Mourinho, but that is not stopping rumours linking him with a move away.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has openly admitted his interest in the player and there is a good chance the Spanish giants will make an attempt to do a deal in the summer. However United coach Phelan believes this is the best place for him to be, and despite being a World Cup winner, he still has much to learn and much to win with the club.
“He is not the finished deal even though everyone looks at him and sees a World Cup winner already but he is not the finished deal, there is still a lot more to come and that is the exciting bit about United,” Phelan told Reuters. “There are players there who haven’t achieved for the club what they need to achieve and we want to make sure that they relish that experience, embrace the opportunity to win things at Manchester United.”
