Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has told Paul Pogba to keep his head down amid uncertainty surrounding his future at Old Trafford.

Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, have both been vocal this summer about the France star’s desire to leave United this summer, with Real Madrid and Juventus chasing the 26-year-old.

After Pogba admitted that he was keen on a “new challenge”, Raiola confirmed his desire to move on and said that he was “in the process” finding a new club for the midfielder – although he later defended his client’s behaviour at United.

Despite fears he would go AWOL, Pogba travelled with United for their pre-season tour of Australia, Singapore and China – and legendary former Red Devils skipper Robson had some advice for the midfielder over his future.

“You’re a Manchester United player, you’re contracted to them so you have to give everything for the club, the team and the fans,” said Robson, who spent 13 years at Old Trafford.

“There’s a lot of speculation in the media about Paul. He is a top player.

“Get your head down, do your pre-season as well as you can – which, from what I’ve seen in the training sessions, he has done – and if something happens and the club want it to happen, or nothing happens then you’ve got to get on with it.”

Unlike Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Laurent Koscielny were both absent when Atletico Madrid and Arsenal respectively returned from their summer break for pre-season as they looked to force exits.

Griezmann has since secured his transfer to Barcelona, although there is still some dispute over the actual transfer fee, and Robson has strong thoughts on player’s refusing to return for pre-season training.

He added: “I think players are influenced far too much by their agents – instead of making their own decisions.

“Sometimes maybe you want some advice on who to sign for and when to move, but at the end of the day, you’re your own person and you can show the path that you want to follow in your career. And I don’t think many players do that – they’re always taking advice from their agents.

“Agents want players to move on because they make money. If a player is loyal to a club and stays there, the agent doesn’t make as much money. I think that’s a big influence not just at Manchester United, but all over the game.

“I think players should sometimes take a good look at themselves in the mirror and make what they want to of their career.”
