Latest Manchester United Transfer News: Pogba’s arrival at Manchester United surrounded by reports linking him away
Pogba, who won the World Cup with France in the summer returned to training at Manchester United this week but his arrival at the Red Devils training ground hasn’t stopped various media outlets reporting his desire to move away from Old Trafford this summer as his relationship with Jose Mourinho get’s strained further and further with each passing day.
The Manchester United manager hasn’t been afraid to criticise his star player in public and in front of the media. During the World Cup, the Portuguese boss had indicated that Pogba’s commanding performance in Russia was due to the fact that his focus was completely on his game rather his off-field commitments and social media.
During the 2nd half of the campaign last season, Pogba was very often pulled back to the back bench, to give youngster McTominay some game time. During a media interaction in the summer, Mourinho also indicated that Pogba’s wasn’t going to be considered for the captain’s armband, even though he took that responsibility 6 times last season.
Man United News Today: Barcelona reportedly have an agreement sealed with Paul Pogba
With tensions growing between Mourinho and Pogba, it will be interesting to see the how club manage to mend their relationship as any uncertainty and instability could derail United’s season much before it even starts. As per Latest Manchester United Transfer News this week, Barcelona have already come to an agreement with Paul Pogba with discussions being led by Eric Abidal, new Technical Secretary of the Catalunia club.
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand tweeted this week pleading to his old club not to sell Paul Pogba to Barcelona with reports of linking him to Camp Nou growing at a rapid pace. In this whole saga, what has been most surprising has been United’s complete silence on the issue. Neither Jose Mourinho or Ed Woodward have come out to completely deny the claims and make it clear that Pogba was a Red Devil and will be for the upcoming season.
With the Transfer Window about to shut in England, it’s now unlikely that Pogba will move away this summer but the last month has been anything but stable for Manchester United and the club would need the Frenchman in the best of forms and mental state to contribute to hopefully what will be a successful season for the Red Devils.
