Paul Pogba is ready to leave Manchester United if Jose Mourinho remains manager, according to reports.
TheFrench midfielder, who joined United in 2016 for a then-world record transfer fee, has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford. Pogba was dropped for Scott McTominay at the start of the month and has not won his place back in the starting line-up in recent weeks.
The Sun say Pogba’s relationship with Mourinho is now at breaking point, with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, in talks with Real Madrid over a summer move. Serie A giants Juventus are also involved and could look to secure a deal for Pogba as they reportedly have a £53 buy-back clause
Mourinho was strongly linked with a departure earlier in the season, but the Portuguese boss committed himself to Old Trafford last month by signing a contract extension. Pogba is said to be unhappy with his role under Mourinho and started the last-16 Champions League clash against Sevilla from the bench. As Pogba’s future at United becomes increasingly unclear, the club have reportedly identified Nice’s Jean Michael Seri as the 24-year-old’s potential replacement. Manchester United, who have dropped to third in the Premier League, face reigning champions Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
