No one divides opinion quite like Paul Pogba.

For some people, the 25-year-old is a national hero for his part in France's World Cup victory in Russia this summer. For others, he's a competent midfielder who's yet to realise his potential at Manchester United. And for those concerned with the business of football, he's a sporting and cultural icon whose value extends way beyond the pitch. 

That Pogba is all these things at once makes him tricky to decipher. However, it's something that Jose Mourinho, Ed Woodward and Manchester United will have to crack over the next few months as the Frenchman approaches a make or break moment in his Old Trafford career: either find a way to get the best out of his enigmatic talent, pay him what he wants and build the team around him, or let him move on next summer. That's asking a lot.

Here's what's in the November 2018 issue of FourFourTwo...
