Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba expressed his desire to be the best player of the 2018 World Cup earlier in May. Unfortunately, the 25-year-old lost the prize to Croatia midfielder Luka Modric, who was the Golden Ball winner in Russia.

Pogba, on the other hand, was one of the standout players for France and played a key role in helping Didier Deschamps’ side win the World Cup. He scored one of the four goals for his national side in the final against Croatia.

Today’s edition of L’Equipe looks at the situation of the former Juventus star at Old Trafford. Pogba rejoined Manchester United from the Turin club in 2016 and still has three years left on his contract.

The World Cup winner had ‘difficult times’ with his manager, Jose Mourinho on a few occasions during the course of last season, explains the French newspaper. That is not sufficient for him to push for a transfer as the report claims a departure seems ‘very unlikely’ this summer.

L’Equipe does mention Pogba’s ‘fluctuating relationship’ with the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager at United will make him take a look at the situation.

Last week we also carried a report from Mundo Deportivo, who claimed the player’s agent Mino Raiola has offered his client to Barcelona.
