Former Man Utd coach urges the club to sell Paul Pogba and as he issues advice on ideal replacement.
Manchester United have been advised to sell Paul Pogba with a perfect replacement also targeted.
This is according to former coach Rene Meulensteen, who worked with the midfielder when Sir Alex Ferguson was in command at Old Trafford.
.Pogba has been in excellent form in recent weeks under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It comes despite constant consideration over the £89m star’s future with Mino Raiola constantly looking to drum up interest.
This has caused difficulties at Old Trafford with the provocative agent falling out with several key figures at the club.
There have been several clubs interested over the years including Real Madrid and Juventus.
And Meulensteen considers United should offload Pogba if the best bid comes in and use the funds to reinforce the team and considers Jack Grealish would be the perfect replacement.

“He likes to play with two pivots in Fred and McTominay,” the Dutchman said.
“The reason for that is to protect the back four but I think you need another midfield player in there that is more creative that can do a bit of both like Fernandinho at Manchester City, or Fabinho with Liverpool.
“Pogba creates an imbalance in the team because he has to play, he can’t play as one of the two pivots.
“Defensively people run off him so he doesn’t do his defensive job.
“You play him from the left OK you try to manufacture something there. I’m not sure.
“Maybe the best way is to say can we get some money from him and look at what we need.
“I think with the stature of Pogba comes expectations. I don’t think overall he’s lived up to those for whatever reasons. So if I could I would cash-in on him and reshape the team.
“A player like Grealish, he would have the DNA to play for Man Utd and the stature for it and he would have the ambition but it would change the outlook of the team.
“He is a ball hogger, he likes to dribble and create things for himself.”
