The Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford has been a topic of non-stop speculation in the past few weeks after the play himself admitted that he could leave the club in search of a ‘new challenge’ elsewhere.

The world cup winner has split opinions between fans and critics since his then world record move from Juventus back in 2016.

Real Madrid have registered a strong interest in Pogba with compatriot Zinedine Zidane desperate to make him a ‘galactico’ whereas his former side Juventus are also open to the idea of a reunion.

However, Higginbotham has urged Manchester United to keep hold of Pogba with all their might and look to build the team around the 26-year-old.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Higginbotham said: “Paul Pogba, I know a lot of people have given him a lot of negativity during the season and after what he came out and said last weekend but if you can get him to stay at Manchester United and be happy, he would be the type of player I would build the team around.

“But you have to have the players around him to allow him to go and express himself.”

He further went on to provide his backing for United bound youngster Aaron Wan Bissaka, who he thinks we be a ‘fantastic signing’.

“In Wan-Bissaka, he’s a player that not many people knew too much about a couple of seasons ago. I’d spoken to Roy Hodgson about him when I was covering Crystal Palace’s games and he had a real baptism of fire in the first few games.

“He’s a former winger and it became apparent really when Zaha was playing against him in training and he said he’s one of the hardest defenders he’d ever played against.

“He’s not looked out of place in any game he’s played in the Premier League for Crystal Palace so I think he’d be a fantastic signing.”
