Manchester United should not stop Paul Pogba from leaving the club this summer, according to former United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Pogba has been linked with Juventus and Real Madrid and he has also indicated his desire to leave Old Trafford.

Schweinsteiger, who played with Pogba at Old Trafford, insisted that the club should only look to keep players who are fully committed.

“If a player wants to leave the club, you shouldn’t stop him,” the 34-year-old told BBC Sport .

“You need players who are 100% into the club and care about the club, that’s the only way you can survive at the top level and have success.

“Paul is a great player, he is just looking for a team where he can play the same style that he does with the France national team, so if you give him that kind of team around him, he would be happy at United.”
