Reports: Pogba's Agent Offers Him To Another Club

After making a good start to last season, the 25-year-old went through a difficult six months following the turn of the year, with many believing it was down to the Frenchman playing in a midfield two as opposed to a midfield three.

Journalist Duncan Castles, who hosts a podcast show, has claimed that Mourinho even chatted to Deschamps about his issues with Pogba during the 2017/18 campaign about the player’s unwillingness to take on more responsibility.

"Deschamps and Mourinho has quite extensive conversations about Pogba during the period of the season where there was a considerable amount of conflict between Raiola and Pogba on one side and Jose Mourinho on the other," he said on The Transfer Window podcast.  

"Pogba demanding he play in a certain position on the left-hand side of a midfield three and have less defensive duties etc, etc.

"A major problem for United during the season.

"Mourinho spoke with Deschamps who was very sympathetic because he'd had essentially that same issue to deal with and also didn't want to shape his midfield into what Pogba wanted."
