After Paul Pogba aggravated a niggling ankle issue in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal, the Frenchman posted an update on the injury in a protective cast which could mean he will be out for the impending Manchester derby – but some supporters aren’t having any of it.
Pogba, who has missed United’s last ten games in all competitions due to the injury, posted an update on social media amid claims he was merely prolonging the knock as an excuse in order to not turn out for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Is this Paul Pogba's last season at Manchester United?
However, despite the apparent visible proof that Pogba is still unable to play, some supporters dismissed the notion entirely and stood by claims he was just trying to wait on a move out in January.
The World Cup winner most recently missed out on the Red Devils’ 3-3 draw away to Sheffield United at the weekend, where a stunning comeback inside ten minutes thanks to goals from Brandon Williams, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford was thwarted by Oli McBurnie’s late equaliser for the Blades.
Here’s what sceptical United supporters had to say on social media, with one fan demanding that he be swapped for Real Madrid’s Isco.
He wants off in January get rid swap him plus cash for isco

To be honest I’d rather Mcsauce was back for those games than pogba. Who clearly doesn’t want to play for us anymore. Take the money real Madrid offer. Around £100million and get fernandez and dembele with the money.
