MANCHESTER UNITED fans fear for the club's future after Paul Pogba announced he wants to move on.
Pogba stunned supporters when he made the shock admission that he is looking for a new challenge while on tour in Japan.

The midfielder is wanted by Real Madrid in a £150million deal after boss Zinedine Zidane made it clear to his board they need to land his signature.
Former club Juventus have also made contact with United bosses to sound out the prospect of taking the 25-year-old back to Italy.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had claimed last season he wanted to keep Pogba and make him an important part of his plans for the future.
But those thoughts now look to have gone up in smoke after Pogba used his promotional tour of Asia to admit he was looking to find a way out of Old Trafford.
That has gone down badly with United fans, some of whom want the club to cash in on the club's record signing as soon as possible.
But there are a huge amount who believe Pogba has been undervalued during his time with the club and they will not know what they have got until he is gone.
Others say they do not trust executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the club to deliver adequate replacements and fear the worst.
United fan @thereseggmu wrote on Twitter: "Forget players like Fernandes, Ndombele and Partey – we'll probably replace Pogba with a new record breaking sponsorship deal."
And @mcasemarcus said: "Pogba has been the most talented player at our club since Ronaldo. Selling him is taking a step back and prolonging the rebuild process."
Supporter @HaroonAsh added: "Man United lack direction, few signs of progress. Pogba has faced plenty of undue scrutiny over the seasons. United's best player, underappreciated.
"His departure perhaps will help some realise how good he was. Meantime, no confidence in the Board to recruit properly."
No point in holding a player who doesnt want to play for the club. No player is bigger than the club. #mufc #Pogba

Everyone should remember our best game this season against #PSG we won without #Pogba so I think we won't struggle a lot as a team if he goes but at the same time we should also replace him with few good hardworking midfielders… #mufc

Last thing we need right now is players who dont want to be here if we get 150-160 for Pogba sell

Can't wait for this club with a 75,000 seat-stadium to be relegated all because people are not that bothered about Pogba leaving.

Muting the words 'Paul Pogba' for today. Clearly, ruining India – Pak for me. I ain't his worst critic but you don't deserve that much respect, mate.

Man Utd of old would've had the Pogba sale wrapped up & ready to announce six months ago and would've already spent the money on players that would materially strengthen the side. Now, they'll drag it out until August & panic-spend the money on a couple of overpriced donkeys.

im not angry that Pogba is leaving, in fact im happy for him i just want him to be happy we dont deserve him and we wasted some of his life that he will never get back, was the best in the league and MU failed to let him be great i hope at RM he gains more recognition.
