Former Manchester United player Paul Ince has claimed that French World Cup winning midfielder Paul Pogba's time at the club is coming to an end, and that the player will move out in the January transfer window.
The relationship between Pogba and manager Jose Mourinho seems to have completely broken down, with a training ground video showing the latest spat between the two parties. Ince believes that Pogba will not last beyond the January transfer window, especially with clubs like Barcelona circling for his signature.
The former Red Devils midfielder told Paddy Power: “If this was happening under Sir Alex, he’d have said one thing; ‘He’s going. Get rid of him now.’ Because there’s no chance he’d allow his team to become a joke because of Paul Pogba’s behaviour.
“I think his fate is completely sealed and he’ll be gone in January. There’s talk of Mourinho going before him, but I’d be disgraced if Ed Woodward allowed that to happen.

“If you do that, you’re essentially allowing a player to become bigger than the manager and the rest of his team.
It’s time for Woodward to step up and back Jose.
“If he tells him that he’s upsetting the dressing room and still not playing at the level he should be, then he needs to back the manager and let him go. Pogba has caused far more trouble than he has good since returning to Man United.”
“I can tell you what Fergie would’ve done, too. There’d have been a complete ban on Pogba speaking to all media. Because it’s obvious that he’s been feeding off the attention he’s been getting and that’s made it even worse.
“There’s not a chance in hell that he’d have allowed Pogba to speak to the press after that bad result against Wolves last week. Anything he does now is a media circus.
“If Pogba was 10/10 every week, playing out of his skin and consistently performing, then perhaps he’d have more grounds to come out and disrespect his club. But he’s not. He’s letting his personal vendetta with Mourinho take over his game.
