The relationship between Manchester United’s football manager Jose Mourinho and midfielder Paul Pogba has always been rigid. The 55-year-old said he is ready to sell the French midfielder, although, Manchester United’s hierarchy tends to disagree with Mourinho and hesitant to sanction such a move.
It did take £89m to resign Pogba after two years of consistent payment towards Juventus, which was then a world record fee. The player and the coach have been keeping distance and has not spoken to each other this past week. Many are just crossing their fingers and hoping that the two find a way to resolve their issues.
Mourinho has a plan to close the gap on champions Manchester City which may push him to let Pogba go. To make a substantial profit on their investment, the coach is leaning towards sticking to a solid plan for the team.
Such a risky plan by Mourinho may bring constrain to interested clubs on signing the French player. It has been reported that Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has been in contact with Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Barcelona, City, and Chelsea.
