There is nothing exactly wrong with Pogba, now a World Cup victor, wanting to leave for a club like Barcelona - especially at a time when United do not look like challenging for any serious silverware.

Pogba's future has been uncertain this summer after links to Barcelona and suggestions of a fallout with Jose Mourinho.

Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure has described Paul Pogba as a "show off" and expects the Manchester United star to play an important role at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Neville admits that he would like to see more from the midfielder at Old Trafford, but believes Manchester United can survive even if they sell the Frenchman in the near future.

Manchester United is not the only club who wants to sign the superstar.

The Red Devils have made something of a mixed start to the new season under Jose Mourinho, with Manchester United having already slipped to two defeats in their opening four games. I want to put my level as high as possible this year.

"As a fan, honestly, part of me is that no one is bigger than the club and I am not interested in people who are looking left and right".

Boateng, 30, considered leaving Bayern after seven years at the Allianz Arena. Neville the pundit would say: he's a talented player but I want to see more consistency and leadership.

German media reported in August that Boateng informed United coach Jose Mourinho of his decision to not return to Manchester, where he had played for local rivals City in the 2010-11 season.

Doucoure is likely to face off with Pogba in the Premier League clash, with the battle in the centre of the park always a pivotal one.

"They have to protect their asset but privately they might be doing a deal because they want to get their £90m back".
