Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba
will push for an Old Trafford exit as he is ready for a new challenge,
according to the scout that discovered him, Franck Sale.
The 26-year-old has been the subject of intense speculation over the
summer, with his openness about a desire for a new challenge elsewhere
compounded by comments from his agent Mino Raiola.
But unlike Romelu Lukaku, Pogba knuckled down during pre-season and
has provided two assists in United's first three Premier League matches.
However, Le Havre head of recruitment Franck Sale, who helped start
Pogba's career, reckons the midfielder will leave United soon.
"If Paul has a coach with a strong personality around him, in time there will be a clash somewhere," Sale told Optus Sport.
"When he left for Juventus a few years ago, with Alex Ferguson that
was very complicated too. Paul didn't concede because he has such a
strong character. So when he says, 'I'm leaving', he's leaving.
"If tomorrow he goes to a big club like a Real Madrid, he'll still have his conflicts, even with Zizou [Zidane]."
Sale added: "Paul is a man who needs to be challenged. I think he is
becoming too comfortable at United. It's not as demanding for him as it
was a few years ago.
"I think he is ready for a new challenge, that's obvious. I can see
him leaving for another big club searching for this new challenge."
