The former United winger sees no reason why Pogba, who has repeatedly spoken of his dream to one day play for Real Madrid, should stick around at Old Trafford.
Kanchelskis, who played under Alex Ferguson at United between 1991 and 1995, has also lost patience with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.

The Russian winger, who won two Premier League titles with United, has lost patience
‘Pogba is always talking about leaving Manchester United, so for me, it would be better if you just left,’ the Russian said.
‘If you’re saying every time, ‘I don’t like this, I don’t like, I want to leave’ then just leave. Go. Leave. No problem.
‘Of course Raiola is a huge problem, he’s always saying that Pogba is not happy at Manchester United.
‘If you want to come and play for Manchester United, you need to open your heart, play 100 per cent. It’s a shame as Pogba is a great player.’
United broke the world transfer record to bring the French midfielder back to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer of 2016.

But the £89million may has struggled to live up to expectations at United and has suffered from niggling injury problems.
Pogba, 27, is currently struggling to even make Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team with Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek in excellent form.
During the October internationals, Pogba admitted it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Real Madrid, a club he has been regularly linked to.
Kanchelskis, 51, who won two Premier League titles during his time at United, also spoke about inconsistent Jesse Lingard, another player failing to live up to expectations at the club.

‘For me, he’s a great player, and I think the problem for him is that he is not playing every game at the same level, like a Denis Irwin. He needs to maintain the same level,’ Kanchelskis said.
‘He plays excellent football one game and then has a terrible game the next.
‘It’s a problem for the chairman because we need to keep hold of these players and our players need to be comfortable and spend time playing with each other.
‘We played four seasons from 1991 to 1992 together and we won two titles because we played every game with the same team and played to a consistent level.’
Kanchelskis retired from playing football in 2006 and moved into management. He was until recently in charge of Navbahor Namangan in Uzbekistan.
