Manchester United scraped a win this weekend as they kep their Champions League hopes alive with a 2-1 win against West Ham.
The Red Devils weren’t at their best but ensured three points with Paul Pogba brace from the spot proving enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to see off the resilient Hammers at Old Trafford.
With the summer transfer window something which is seemingly constantly in the news from a United point of view, manager Solskjaer will be more than aware of the challenges which he is set to face both in terms of keeping his star men, and bringing in new talent.
One of the players who is constantly being linked with a future away from Old Trafford is Paul Pogba, with a host of the top clubs in Europe casting their eye over the Frenchman.
However, news this weekend has emerged that United could be set for change in tune surrounding Pogba, and could be set to offer him the captaincy in a bid to keep the World Cup winning midfielder at the club.
We here in the Tavern though feel this might be a step too far for United, especially for a player who seems to have caused more than his fair share of problems at the club and always seems to have a cloud over him with regards to the next piece of controversy.
Giving in to Pogba and making him the main man sets a worrying precedent at the club, and gives the player a sense of power over the club.
This simply cannot happen, and if it means selling him on to bring in players who will offer more in terms of desire and effort, then that’s exactly what United should look to do.
