The World Cup winner has started United’s last three games on the bench and has been brought on by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a second-half substitute.
But Ince feels Pogba should have started ahead of either Fred or Scott McTominay in United’s midfield for their match against Chelsea, which ended in a stalemate.
And the former United midfielder, who made 281 appearances during his career at Old Trafford, believes Pogba should now be granted his move to Real Madrid.
‘Paul Pogba should be on the pitch, this is a big, big game,’ Ince told beIN Sport.
‘For him to be sitting on the bench and watching, with no disrespect, McTominay and Fred playing in his position, I would be saying, ‘I must be doing something wrong if I can’t get in this team’.
‘I know he has had an injury and he might be trying to bring him on a little later on.
‘But I think it is time to move on. He has come out in the last two weeks and said he wants to join Real Madrid.
‘I think his performances since he has been here have been inconsistent. Paul Pogba is a world-class player and when he moved to Old Trafford I thought, ‘great’.
‘The fans have gone against him and now Bruno Fernandes has come in and shown what you need to do to be a Man United player.
‘He has performed consistently and Paul Pogba hasn’t done that and that is why he finds himself on the bench.’
