Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes Jose Mourinho must recruit some influential players this summer in a bid to bring the best out of midfielder Paul Pogba

The Frenchman has struggled to display his qualities since returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in a move worth £89million in 2016.

Pogba’s future in Manchester has also been thrown into doubt amid concerns over his relationship with Mourinho after being left on the bench and substituted on a number of occasions during a disappointing season.

Keane, who made 480 appearances and captained United for several years, believes the 25-year-old simply needs some more experienced and senior team-mates around him. 

‘I like him, I think he’s a good player, a good kid,’ Keane said. ‘He probably needs better help around him, good influences around the training ground.

‘I was the luckiest man on the planet when I was a player, I always had good lads around me, senior players who led by example. Pogba probably doesn’t have that at United.

‘He’s a good player. Would he feel he could have had a better season? Probably.

‘Usually the good players are quite critical of themselves. When you play for Man United and you don’t win a trophy you probably would be critical of yourself.’

Reports in Italy suggest Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri could be targeting a sensational re-union with Pogba this summer.

The France international won four consecutive Italian titles and the Coppa Italia on two occasions, before deciding to seal a return to Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho said at the start of May that he feels Pogba will be at Manchester United next season despite the duo failing to see eye-to-eye in recent months.

But Pogba said earlier this week: ‘We are never sure of anything but contractually it’s sure, yes.’
