"He had Manchester City, they were offering less money but he was going to play better football than United - I'm sorry about that, but City play better football and Guardiola will improve him".

Evra's comments caused a social media stir splitting fans' opinions on the matter.

Patrice Evra has stated that he expects his French compatriot Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United this summer following altercations with fans. I apologise to the fans for not being able to achieve our goals, nevertheless we are Manchester United!

Asked if he would build a new team around Pogba or whether the midfielder would leave, Evra said: "I think he will leave because you need to feel the love when you play somewhere, you need to be committed".

Pogba was seen remonstrating with a fan after United's 2-0 defeat to Cardiff City at Old Trafford on the final day of the Premier League season.

"If Paul decides to stay another year and then leave, or stay another few years, maybe the fans will love him because he is committed".

Real Madrid are strongly interested in a player who was voted into this season's PFA Team of the Year but has failed to win over a number of United supporters given his efforts across the team's poor campaign.

USA readies new tariffs as Trump says he'll meet China's Xi
China announced it would hit the USA with tariffs of $60bn on $200bn worth of goods starting on June 1. And the trade dispute has hit USA soybean exports hard.

The Chile worldwide joined United from Arsenal in January 2018 in a deal that also saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates Stadium.

This rift is primarily due to Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez - as per reports.

He started his Manchester United career well under then manager Louis Van Gaal before everything went downhill for him at Old Trafford. That's the United fans I know - they've just had enough.

Both Pogba and Sanchez rank as United's top earners in wages, and receive staggering amounts of bonuses for goals and assists in every match.

Not all is well at Manchester United.

The France global has endured a largely hard campaign at Old Trafford, initially thriving under Jose Mourinho's successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before his form tailed off dramatically towards the end of the season.

"It's either the money or he wanted to be the number one, take the number seven shirt and be the star".
