Manchester United manager José Mourinho is so much desperate to terminate Paul Pogba’s contract with the team due to his hostile relationship with the player.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba was said to be heading to Barcelona during the previous transfer market in the summer but the Red Devils failed to sanction the deal.
According to Tuttosport in July, the Camp Nou outfits were unwilling to dance to United’s tune in terms of the player’s price tag, hence, the deal collapsed abruptly.
In the same month, another report emerged — this time via Sky Sports Italia — that Juventus were more than ready to re-sign the Frenchman whom they let go for £88m in 2016.
United gave a listening ear to their offer but already had their own criteria that would warrant the player’s switch to the Turin outfits.
According to the Italian outlet, Mourinho was willing to release his midfielder only if Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri was willing to add Miralem Pjanic as a makeshift for Pogba’s signature.
That was the end of negotiations between both clubs as Allegri couldn’t afford to let go of the influential Miralem Pjanic.
The Winter transfer market is set to commence in two weeks time, Mourinho, who couldn’t sign a center-back in the summer, is currently making his wishlist of players.
One of his targets for the upcoming transfer market is Juventus left-back Alex Sandro. The 27-year-old has been a constant target for Mourinho since 2016 but the Portuguese manager failed in his attempts to lure him to Old Trafford.
However, this time the former Porto boss is going extra mile to drive home his demand. He is ready to offer a one-time world’s most expensive player Paul Pogba as a makeshift for the Brazilian star — what is he thinking?
It’s not surprising anyway, the relationship between both parties has never been cordial nor encouraging since the previous season.
Pogba often criticized the Mourinho’s tactical discipline whenever results didn’t go their way.
Mourinho also loved to question the player’s character on and off the pitch, therefore, worsening the situation.
Two masters can’t be in a team unless they are willing and ready to perish, Mourinho and Pogba are fast becoming two parallel lines that will never have anything in common.
Parting ways with the World Cup winner seems the best option for Mourinho and the whole team, but exchanging him for Alex Sandro sounds disgusting and disgraceful to the Frenchman’s quality.
