Sam Allardyce urges Jose Mourinho to sell Paul Pogba to Barcelona

Sam Allardyce believes that Manchester United should sell star man Paul Pogba, while he also revealed that Everton had the chance to sign both Harry Maguire and Andrew Robertson during Ronald Koeman’s tenure at Goodison Park.

Big Sam, who left Everton in May to make way for Marco Silva, told Alan Brazil on talkSport breakfast that Jose Mourinho should allow France’s World Cup star Pogba to leave in what would be a stunning deadline day switch to Barcelona.

“Sell him!,” he said.

“I don’t think he’s a dressing room boy.

“The only trouble with today is getting in a replacement, letting a player of that size go without any replacements of high quality.

“But, if the reports in the papers are true and whether it’s him or his agent or a bit of both, Sir Alex Ferguson would have just said, ‘see you later’.

“He would have done that. There’s nobody bigger than Man United.”

Former England boss Allardyce also spoke about how the Toffees could have snapped up both Maguire and Robertson from Hull, however the club’s then boss Koeman decided to look elsewhere (see video).
