Several Manchester United fans are trying not to imagine the team without Paul Pogba after Anthony Martial’s move to Sevilla has been confirmed.
The Man United star is set to join Sevilla on loan for the remainder of the season in a bid to search for more playing time, something he has struggled to get at United following the signings of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.
His deal to join the La Liga side has no buy option. Meaning after the end of the season, he would report back to Manchester United, and a decision on whether or not to continue his playing at United will be decided.
His move to Sevilla means the French connection between the midfield and the frontline is paused until the end of the season and some fans think both players may never be at Manchester United again.
Paul Pogba will become a free agent at the end of the season and if United fail to reach an agreement over extending his contract, he will leave the club for free, hence Anthony Martial and Pogba’s combination at United ended in 2021.
And some fans have shared their concerns over the situation, with one claiming he doesn’t have the mental strength to imagine United without the World Cup winner.
I’m not ready for the day Pogba leaves

Martial gone. I’m not mentally prepared for the day Pogba leaves this club. Hopefully he signs and stays.

Paul Pogba, who last featured for Manchester United against Atalanta last year due to a muscle injury, is attracting interest from PSG, Juventus and Real Madrid.
No strong interest from the mentioned teams at the moment as the player is only focused on recovering from a groin injury.
What has Ralf Rangnick recently said about Paul Pogba?
“What you can see from the very first day in training yesterday is that he’s [Pogba] present, physically and mentally and what I saw in training was very promising for the future,” said Rangnick.
On if it’s worth playing Pogba in matches despite his contract expiring soon, he added: “Yes of course.
“I also played Nemanja Matic in the last games and his contract is also expiring. By the way, my contract as a manager is also expiring in the summer.”
