Paul Pogba saga continues

Pogba has not seen eye to eye with manager Jose Mourinho in recent months. The Frenchman has been substituted early in several Manchester United matches or dropped completely. Pogba was most recently substituted in Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to West Brom at the weekend. The move once again fuelled the fire of discontent between Pogba and Mourinho.

The Independent reported on Tuesday that Mourinho would bench Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and other stars for the Red Devils’ FA Cup semifinal on Saturday against Tottenham.

It is now apparent that De Gea and Carrick have spoken to the midfielder in an attempt to change his attitude.

Paul Pogba saga to force a transfer

The Daily Star and Metro are reporting Mourinho is fed up with Pogba and wants the club to sell the midfielder. Pogba joined the club in 2015 for, an at the time record, of £89 million.

This season has seen Mourinho unable to get the best out of his stars for long periods. He has also not see eye to eye with his most expensive signing.

The senior members of Manchester United seen the Pogba saga as a distraction. Therefore, the club hope the intervention will get the player back onside. Rumours persist that Pogba is being courted by Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid. Although reports of a move are just conjecture currently. What is known is Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola isn’t happy with the way his client is being played.

Pogba is not the only Red Devils’ player reported unhappy with Mourinho. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are said to be considering their options.

Should Manchester United sell Pogba to end the saga or is Mourinho the one who should go?
