Pogba was replaced in the 64th minute of the FA Cup tie following a disappointing display after the French midfielder made his first start in a month and a half.
The World Cup winner came off the bench to score Manchester United’s winner in a their 1-0 victory over AC Milan on Thursday night but Pogba couldn’t replicate his impact in the FA Cup.
BBC Sport pundit Shearer claimed that Manchester United have already made a decision about Pogba’s long-term future at Old Trafford.
“We’ve said it so many times that the ability is there but we probably haven’t seen it enough,” Shearer told BBC Sport.
“We know what he can do, he did it in the week when he came on and scored and has been injured for the last six or seven weeks.
“So, it depends what he wants, but I expect the decision has been made already on whether he’s staying or going.”
Pogba has scored three times in 19 appearances in the Premier League this term.
The French midfielder has scored one goal in the Europa League and the League Cup.
Pogba has been overshadowed by the outstanding performances of Bruno Fernandes over the past 12 months or so.
Manchester United will host Brighton in their next Premier League game on Sunday 4 April.
