Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly vowed to leave the club during the January transfer window if manager Jose Mourinho stays on.
According to The Sun, the France World Cup winner is fed up with life under Mourinho and has told his teammates that he will end his Manchester United career for a second time if the Portuguese tactician manages to survive the axe by the next transfer window in the New Year.
Pogba, who sealed his return to Manchester United in a club-record deal worth £89m during the summer of 2016, has enjoyed a frosty relationship with his manager since his move.
Their unstable relationship was aggravated recently when Mourinho removed him from his position as one of the club captains.
His removal came after Pogba criticised his manager’s defensive tactics after Manchester United were forced to a 1-1 draw by newly promoted side Wolverhampton Wanderers in their penultimate league game.
Mourinho announced the decision to strip him of captaincy duties just before the Carabao Cup third round exit to Championship side Derby County and the pair were caught by Sky cameras in an awkward exchange on the club’s training ground afterwards.
The training ground exchange stemmed from Pogba’s social media post after the Derby County loss.
The former Juventus star was substituted by Mourinho during Saturday’s disappointing 3-1 defeat at West Ham United to further deepen the issues between the pair.
