Emmanuel Petit says Paul Pogba is due to leave Manchester United this summer but has urged the Frenchman to avoid a move to rivals Manchester City.

Pogba, 29, is out of contract at the end of the season and will leave United after six years at the club.

The Frenchman has been linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Man City, with both clubs keen to secure his services on a free transfer.

Ex-Arsenal midfielder Petit thinks Pogba is right to leave United but has warned him against signing for their local rivals.

Speaking to Genting Casino, he said: “He must not remain at Manchester United in his own interest and in the interest of Manchester United. I think his future doesn’t lie with Manchester United.

“For me, his future does not lie with Manchester City at all. There are big rumors about Paris Saint-Germain here in France, so I don’t know what he’s up to.

“But it’s likely to sign a big deal, he wants to sign a three-year or four-year deal, but he needs to get his form back.

“He hasn’t been the same player for a long time. It’s been a very difficult season for him and Manchester United.

“I think the love story ended at Old Trafford. He has to go and I would like to see him in the Premier League, the best league in the world.

“I’m not sure he’ll stay in the Premier League, I’m pretty sure he’ll leave England. That’s my opinion, I could be wrong, but that’s how I feel.’

After being signed for over £90million in 2016, Pogba has failed to reach the heights expected of him at Old Trafford.

He won the Europa League and EFL Cup in a strong first season at the club, but has not won a silver with the Manchester giants since.

He has fallen out of favor this season, making just 27 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions.

With United reportedly taking a younger approach to recruitment, Pogba is set to leave this summer alongside Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani.

In terms of replacing Pogba, new manager Erik ten Hag is believed to be targeting West Ham’s Declan Rice and Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips.
