Bruno Fernandes has left little room for Paul Pogba at Manchester United

It was in a Manchester derby that Paul Pogba produced the most memorable performance of his Manchester United career, scoring twice to inspire the 3-2 comeback win in April 2018 which delayed Manchester City's coronation as Premier League champions.

But when the two sides meet again at Old Trafford on Saturday, two-and-a-half years on from those heroics at the Etihad Stadium, Pogba is not even guaranteed a place in the side. "He needs to change team," announced Mino Raiola, his agent, on Monday. If the writing was not already on the wall, then it surely is now.

Pogba's return to Manchester United from Juventus in 2016 was a blockbuster story which was met with a deluge of coverage and a frenzy of excitement. The one that got away. Back again.

And for a world-record £89m transfer fee too.

The hope, the expectation, was that Pogba would help restore the club to its former glories. But plainly it has not worked out that way.
