The Red Devils are trying desperately to hang onto Pogba, who recently admitted he is considering a new challenge.
The Frenchman has struggled at times during his second Old Trafford spell.
But Pogba has still been one of United’s strongest performers over the last 12 months.
Other stars have been blamed for not pulling their weight and shirking responsibility at the club.
And former Liverpool star Stan Collymore is keen to excuse Pogba for his struggles.
Instead, the pundit claims the club have let the midfielder down by not building a team around him.
Collymore believes Chelsea star N’Golo Kante should have been brought in by Ed Woodward due to the partnership formed by the duo for the French national side.
To add, the pundit told the Daily Mirror that Declan Rice should also be pursued.
“He sparkles for France with N’Golo Kante alongside him, after all, and their partnership reminds me of the one Eric Cantona shared with his “water carrier”, Didier Deschamps,” Collymore said.
“United have also let Pogba down by failing to sign the player or players who’d bring out the best in him.
“Because if he is to become the next outstanding footballer, which he has the ability to do, then he has to have someone of Deschamps’ ilk alongside him at club level.
“Ed Woodward clearly doesn’t want to allow Pogba – the jewel in his crown – to leave United this summer and we will have to wait and see if Real Madrid or Juventus can match the minimum £150million United would want.
“So, if he does end up staying, United ought to be trying to sign two players to set him free.
“It would be hard to get Kante out of Chelsea or Declan Rice out of West Ham, but that doesn’t mean United shouldn’t try for both.
“With those two alongside Pogba, United’s midfield would look a lot more like a United midfield should look.”
With Real Madrid and Juventus looking to pounce this summer, United know they will receive a huge transfer fee if they decide to sell Pogba.
And Collymore has suggested another two stars that could be brought in with the funds generated from his exit.
“Of course, if Pogba is allowed to go, then Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have big money to reinvest and I’d go down a different route to the Galacticos-lite path United have trodden in recent seasons,” he added.
“I’d be looking at a mixture of Rice, James Maddison and Matteo Guendouzi, three players who would thrive at United.
“They’re young, talented, you could bring them up together and even have a little change left over from Pogba – even if you signed all three.”
