Manchester United will refuse to sell Paul Pogba this summer even after his bust-up with Jose Mourinho, according to reports.
Pogba has had a strained relationship with Mourinho over the past year but the situation reached an all-time low this week during a stunning training ground bust-up.
Mourinho is said to be furious at Pogbas comments after the Premier League victory against Leicester City in which the Frenchman all-but confirmed his frustrations at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils boss reportedly told Pogba that if he wanted to leave the club again he should hand in a transfer request.
In response, it is claimed World Cup winner Pogba told Mourinho that from now on he should communicate to him through his agent, Mino Raiola.
Pogba has emerged as a top target for Barcelona this summer and the La Liga giants are hoping to capitalise on the tense situation at the Theatre of Dreams.
But The Sun say Manchester United are playing hardball and remain adamant that Pogba, who returned to United two years ago for a then-world record £89m, will not be sold.
Despite United hoping Pogba and Mourinho can resolve the stand-off at Old Trafford, talkSPORTs Alan Brazil has told the Premier League giants to sell the midfielder.
Im not happy with Pogba, I think hes arrogant, hes aloof, he said.
The way he struts about, if he was playing eight-out-of-ten every week then Id say, “well hes got a point”, but he doesnt.
I think Jose is right to say, “look, youre annoying the dressing room, youre annoying me, if you dont like it, see you later”.
Its best to get rid and I think that may strengthen Man United. Pogba this, Pogba that – Im sick of it to be honest.
