Jose Mourinho vs. Paul Pogba row

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is understood to have fallen out with midfielder Paul Pogba, prompting speculation over both of their futures at the club.

Numerous reports surfaced during the 2017-18 campaign that Mourinho was unhappy with Pogba's performances, whereas Pogba felt that he was not being utilised properly by his manager.

The issues have surfaced again in the opening stages of the 2018-19 season too, despite Pogba captaining the team and scoring in their first two Premier League games.

Pogba has been linked with a move to Barcelona, but United are reluctant to sell the World Cup winner while they are unable to bring in a replacement.
