Paul Ince believes that Paul Pogba will have difficulty returning to the Manchester United team when he returns from an injury.
The World Cup winner has struggled with an ankle problem that has limited him to just seven games this season – the last on Boxing Day.
In his absence, Fernandes has immediately become a favorite with fans at Old Trafford since he signed for £ 68m from Sporting Lisbon and Ince thinks Pogba will now have trouble fitting into the United team.

“Fans thought Paul Pogba would be the star. But look how it went, “Ince told Paddy Power.
“If he still wants to leave, I would say that it would be much easier for Ole to do that now that Bruno is around. It doesn’t feel like they need him anymore.
“His really great games have been few and far between, so the current situation could suit club and player.
“If he comes back before the end of the season, he won’t even be on the team. He will have to fight for his place – if he only gets one. “

Former United midfielder Lee Sharpe agrees with Ince because he believes that Pogba will have no place in their team if Jack Grealish is recruited in the summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has considered signing midfielders in the summer and is tipped to bring in Villa playmaker Grealish.
‘I think that he [Grealish] would be there to replace Pogba, “Sharpe said Gentingbet.com
“If Grealish comes and they play Fernandes, there really is no room in the team for someone like Pogba, I think that’s probably a bit too many creative players.
Fernandes scored three times for the Red Devils and provided three assists for his teammates – one of which was for Anthony Martial’s opener in the Manchester Derby on Sunday.
Ince made more than 200 games for United, where he won the Premier League twice and the FA Cup twice.
