Paul Pogba determined to leave Manchester United next summer

Mourinho's Battle With Pogba Shows The Special One Is Not So Special Anymore

The board seems to trust Mourinho that he will form a team with players who want to play and fight for United.

Following Jose Mourinho's latest spat with midfielder Paul Pogba, it is believed a number of Manchester United players are fed up with the Portuguese boss.

His fractured relationship with Mourinho was laid bare for all to see in a frosty exchange between the two on the training ground, which turned out to revolve around an Instagram video he posted during United's defeat to Derby County in the League Cup.

Mourinho is also at odds with Eric Bailly, the Ivory Coast global who is no longer first choice.

Reports claim it's now a case of one or the other leaving United, with Pogba desperate to join Barcelona and Mourinho keen to make it happen.

In the video, Pereira is laughing and joking with Pogba in a private box at Old Trafford while their team-mates were struggling against Derby in a Carabao Cup tie that saw United eventually go out on penalties. Former players have voiced their opinions regarding this issue, but mostly they have been urging both of them to put their differences aside and put the interests of the club first.

Although the policy established by Sir Alex Ferguson requiring non-playing members of the squad to turn up in official club wear has been relaxed, players are still expected to dress conservatively and this is another area in which staff feel Pogba is setting a bad example.

Mourinho is one such manager who does not care about how valuable a player could be for the club's fortunes, if his attitude is not where it is supposed to be, Jose will get him out of the club.

There is also the desire on the players' part to leave United.

According to the Daily Mail, Lukaku has "cooled his friendship" with Pogba recently because he doesn't want to be seen backing the Frenchman over his manager.

'We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. The other players who have been caught in the middle of Mourinho's rift with Pogba are growing exhausted of the behaviour of both men and the toxic atmosphere it has created.
