Paul Pogba future

Paul Pogba reacts to his effort being saved during the Premier League game between Stoke City and Manchester United on September 9, 2017

The future of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has come under question following reports of a fallout with manager Jose Mourinho.

Pogba's performances so far this season have often been criticised, and reports have suggested that the France international is growing increasingly frustrated at being played outside his favoured position.

Mourinho has strongly denied claims that his relationship with the £89m man has broken down, but he has regularly dropped or subbed Pogba since rumours of the rift emerged.

A number of Europe's top clubs are understood to be monitoring the situation, leading to speculation that Pogba could potentially leave in the summer - just two years after returning to Old Trafford for a then world-record fee.
