LONDON: France international playmaker, Paul Pogba gives Manchester United ultimatum on Jose Mourinho

Things may be coming to a head as far as Pogba’s future at Manchester United is concerned, with the Sun reporting that he “has told teammates he will quit in January unless Mourinho has gone.”

France international Pogba, whose relationship with Mourinho has become increasingly tense, was substituted during the 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Saturday.

The Sun says he “feels he is being embarrassed by being played in formations and with tactics that none of the team can get to grips with” and has “told people close to him that he is better off not playing in a Mourinho team.”

It claims Pogba is “resigned to the fact that he cannot play under the manager and wants out if Mourinho stays.”

The World Cup-winning midfielder and United’s record signing was reported over the weekend to be keen to join Barcelona or Real Madrid — but United do not want to sell him.

According to reports, the Barcelona board are divided on whether or not to make a January move for Pogba, but are confident that the club have the funds to land him.

Speculation over Mourinho’s position at Old Trafford has increased since the West Ham defeat, with United facing a crucial home game against Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday.
