The World Cup winner has dominated headlines for the past 12 months and his teammates are reportedly growing unhappy
Paul Pogba should be sold for the good of Manchester United – according to his teammates.
The World Cup winner has been in the headlines for the past 12 months, with speculation about his future at Old Trafford.
Given how rapidly his relationship deteriorated with Jose Mourinho, it will not have come as a surprise to supporters to read reports linking him with Barcelona and Real Madrid this time last year.
But when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as manager, the 26-year-old seemed to be finally settling down and his incredible statistics from last season suggest the speculation did not phase him.
However, his latest comments about leaving United appear to have finally pushed his teammates over the edge and severed any remaining ties.
According to The Sun, several disgruntled players want the France international sold so the Red Devils can focus on rebuilding in Solskjaer’s first full season in charge.
Old Trafford chief Ed Woodward maintains the £89million signing must stay, but Pogba is growing increasingly desperate and his team-mates know it.
While he is not unpopular in the dressing room, the continued off-field distractions are the last thing a dressing room so divided needs right now.
The Norwegian boss is struggling to hold together a dressing room which is split by financial jealousy and is lacking discipline.
Pogba’s undoubted talent means Woodward is loathe to sanction any deal for his star man as he believes it would undermine United’s position as a top club in world football.
Pogba was reported to have phoned new Juve boss Maurizio Sarri asking to take him back to the club he left three years ago.
And he began the summer hoping to join his hero and returning Real boss Zinedine Zidane, even though they have spent £268m — including an initial £88m on Eden Hazard.
