Manchester United have reportedly decided that they want to offload club record signing Paul Pogba when the transfer window will be re-opened in January.
Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the 2018/19 season following reports of fallouts with Portuguese head-coach Jose Mourinho and a string of underwhelming performances on the field.
The Mirror claimed that Jose Mourinho has now run out of patience with the World Cup winner due to his behaviour off the pitch,
The Red Devils board are believed to be planning the sale of Frenchman regardless of whether Mourinho stays on as manager, though, just two-and-a-half years after bringing him back to the club for a world-record fee.
Pogba is deemed to be a divisive figure in the United dressing room and has been left out of the team for their most important games recently.
The Red Devils will reportedly look to cash in on the 25-year-old when the transfer window reopens next month, and would even be willing to let him leave on loan as long as it included the option of a permanent transfer.
Juventus are considered Pogba’s most likely destination, and United are hopeful of striking a swap deal with the Italian giants.
Mourinho is understood to prefer a like-for-like swap with Miralem Pjanic, but United understand that they are more likely to succeed in bringing long-term target Alex Sandro to the club.
