Manchester United should sell “arrogant” Paul Pogba to FC Barcelona in the summer transfer window, according to Alan Brazil.

The France international has been linked with a potential move to the La Liga champions over the past few weeks.

Pogba won the World Cup in the summer to answer his critics following his goal in a 4-2 win over Croatia in the final in Russia.

The 25-year-old shared a fractious relationship with Jose Mourinho throughout the 2017-18 season due in part to his inconsistent performances.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is reported to have offered the French midfielder to a host of Europe’s top clubs.

Speculation has suggested that FC Barcelona have already made one offer to sign Pogba before the close of La Liga’s summer transfer window.

Pogba cast further doubt on his future following Manchester United’s 2-1 win against Leicester City last week despite breaking the deadlock from the penalty spot.

Former Man United star Brazil has urged Pogba to cut their losses with the World Cup winner and sell the France star to the Catalan side before the end of this month.

“I’m not happy with Pogba, I think he’s arrogant, he’s aloof,” Brazil told talkSPORT.

“The way he struts about, if he was playing eight-out-of-ten every week then I’d say, ‘well he’s got a point’, but he doesn’t!

“You look at Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva – week-in, week-out they are brilliant for City – but this guy comes along, and there’s no doubting his ability, but something is just not right.

“I think Jose is right to say, ‘look, you’re annoying the dressing room, you’re annoying me, if you don’t like it, see you later’.

“It’s best to get rid and I think that may strengthen Man United.

“Every day I’m reading it in the papers, Pogba this, Pogba that – I’m sick of it to be honest.”

Manchester United re-signed Pogba in a club record £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.
