Sadly, with both player and manager in no good terms, it is looking likely that the Portuguese boss will have his way, but time will definitely tell.
According to Spain’s sports news outlet, Diario Gol suggest the former Real Madrid boss, who is currently in Russia as a pundit, has concluded plans to offload the box-to-box midfielder this summer.

La Liga champions, Barcelona are reportedly considering signing the French international but that are unaware how much eggheads at Old Trafford will be looking at.
In the main time, ex-Manchester United defence ace, Patrice Evra has advised compatriot, Pogba to pay more attention to his game rather than exchange banters with his club boss.
“I was begging him to stay when he left for United,” Evra was quoted as saying on ITV.
“The problem with Paul is that his image is becoming bigger than his football. He’s got everything, he just needs to be more consistent.
“He doesn’t have any special haircut today so the focus can be on his football.”
“He’s a really shy guy, people think he’s arrogant, he’s really humble, he wants to be the best.
“When he has a good connection with his manager [Mourinho], he will go to his best.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that the Manchester United boss has revealed teams that are likely to progress to the round of 16.
Mourinho did not failed to look in the direction of the five teams that will be representing Africa at Russia 2018 as the Portuguese attempted to predict the winners and runners-up of all eight groups according to the UK Mirror report.
