Throughout Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s time in charge of Manchester United, there has rarely been a point at which Paul Pogba’s future could be described as ‘certain’.

The summer of 2018 had seen United add Fred to their ranks in a move which some saw as an anticipation of the Frenchman’s exit, while injury issues limited his involvement for the majority of last season.

While the visitors dominated possession at Old Trafford, United outshot Pep Guardiola’s team and looked more comfortable than many anticipated before kick-off.

The key takeaway here, though, is that it’s no longer a case of picking the trio which includes Pogba and the trio which doesn’t: in both cases, the United manager has options at his disposal which can suit his team as a counter-attacking force or one which wants to set the tone possession-wise.

A group of dynamic attackers in front of a three-man midfield can give Solskjaer the opportunity to get things right on his own terms, identifying which games might best suit Fernandes, Van de Beek and one other and which might even suit two deeper-lying men with only one of the big-money men.

Pogba showed something closer to his best form after the June restart last term, helping United salvage their campaign and return to the Champions League.

Rather than reintegrating Pogba and forcing himself to start again if and when United’s record signing moves on, would it be so bad if he built a system which Pogba has to adapt to himself, rather than the other way around?
