Real Madrid biding their time in Paul Pogba pursuit

Real Madrid biding their time in Paul Pogba pursuit”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men took the lead in the first half when 21-year-old Daniel James struck his third goal in four appearances for his new club since arriving from Swansea City in the summer.

Nemanja Matic, another out-of-favour midfielder, liked an Instagram comment which said: "Matic if #Ole Gunnar Solskjaer don't want to future you in his team please leave the team I think that man is sp (sic) myopic that he doesn't know he needs you in the midfield, I am beginning to hate Ole".

The Red Devils then played against ten men after Kevin Danso was sent off in the 73rd minute - but still could not find a victor.

Manchester United legend Scholes has now had his say on the performance at St Mary's on Saturday afternoon.

And despite being pleased with Juan Mata as one of the older heads, Scholes was not impressed by some of the Spaniard's contemporaries.

Apart from Maguire, Solskjaer too has voiced similar concerns as he urged his players to be more clinical and ruthless when going forward.

"I am disappointed. It looked like from when the moment Juan Mata went off, actually", Scholes said.

Both Fred and Matic are behind Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira in the midfield pecking order, but are expected to have more game time once United begin their Europa League campaign.

Manchester United News GUNNAR BE HONEST Solskjaer "was willing to sell Pogba but Real and Barca weren't serious" COURT OUT?

"These are the people that young players are looking up to, the examples you're looking at".

"I think you nearly have to write United off for the next two years, this team".

And Fred is not the only United player to step out of line on the web this week.

Lastly, Ole warned the Reds that if their mediocrity continued post the global break, they would be in for a tough time against Leicester City, who remain unbeaten in the Premier League.
