Paul Pogba is reportedly in line to become Manchester United ‘s new captain.
United skipper Antonio Valencia looks set to leave Old Trafford this summer after 10 years at the club.
The 33-year-old was given the armband by Jose Mourinho in the summer, but has managed just eight appearances this season – and a calf complaint has been partly behind why he has made just one start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Valencia hinted late on Friday evening that he is set to exit the club – and Pogba has emerged as the No.1 candidate to replace him as United captain, according to The Sun.
Mourinho took the vice-captaincy off the French midfielder but he has enjoyed a stunning change in fortunes since Solskjaer’s arrival.
Pogba has been a regular and chipped in with nine goals as the Red Devils have reignited their top four hopes.
