Paul Pogba vs Jose Mourinho
It’s another grim weekend for Paul Pogba in the Sunday papers.
The tabloids have once again lined up to reveal everything that’s wrong with Pogba at Man United.
According to the latest batch of updates, Jose Mourinho no longer talks to his 100 million man, and Pogba’s second spell at Old Trafford could soon be over.
Pogba doesn’t talk to Man United’s boss
The headline news in the Sunday Sun is that Mourinho and Pogba barely talk anymore.
That’s because Pogba is reportedly furious with Mourinho for benching him in recent weeks.
The Sun tell their readers the following:
The Premier League’s most expensive player is giving his boss the silent treatment after getting axed last month.
Their relationship has hit rock bottom and the Frenchman is communicating through assistant boss Rui Faria and backroom staff.
‘Man United to sell Pogba’
The Mirror on Sunday step up the Pogba story announcing that Man United are ready to sell the French midfielder.
Pogba’s second Old Trafford exit is couched in a larger story about United’s apparent recruitment drive this summer.
In a hugely ambitious rumour, the Mirror link United with five top class players while they shove Pogba towards the exit door:
Jose Mourinho will spend big this summer – with Paul Pogba the bait in a £200 million transfer blitz on Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
United are ready to boost their funds as they target Raphael Varane, Toni Kroos, Marquinhos, Marco Verratti and Alex Sandro.
For the record, Pogba is under contract at United until 2021.
This season the 25-year-old has three goals and 10 assists for the Red Devils in 27 matches.
