United writer refutes claims of anti-Pogba agenda: 'That's almost unprecedented in the club's history'
- Pogba is looking to leave United in order to join Real Madrid or Juventus.
- However, Solskjaer has recently defended the Frenchman from all criticism.
- But United writer Neil Custis believes the World Cup winner has only himself to blame.
In recent weeks, both Paul Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola have openly spoken about the Frenchman's desire to leave United after spending three years at Old Trafford.
Nevertheless, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to defend the 26-year-old, claiming that there's in agenda against the player in the media.
But Neil Custis, the Sun's United reporter of over 20 years, has refuted the Norwegian's suggestion that the media is out to get World Cup winner.
Speaking on talkSPORT radio, he said: "This thing about there being an agenda against Paul, there is no agenda. When he says he wants a new challenge and his agent says the player needs to get out, that's totally disrespectful to Manchester United.
"Of course there is not a media agenda. There's this idea that we all wake up and think, 'hmm what will our agenda be today? I know, let's have a go at him'. It's nonsense. When a player says something and his agent says something it becomes a major issue.
"It's not regular for Manchester United players to try and get out of the club, to try and agitate to leave. Making a statement that it's time for a new challenge, that's almost unprecedented in United’s history."
