Manchester United will demand more than £200m to sell Paul Pogba with his relationship with Jose Mourinho broken after being told he will never captain the club again.
Pogba has three years remaining on his contract at Old Trafford, meaning United will set a monster fee to sell the World Cup winner.
Pogba is now destined to leave the club, likely next summer, with Barcelona, PSG and his former club Juventus all competing to sign him.
Pogba was left stunned after Mourinho broke the news in front of the United squad at the training ground ahead of last night’s EFL Cup tie against Derby at Old Trafford.
The United boss told the £89million Frenchman– who has captained United three times this season – he would never skipper the side again because he lacked the qualities required of a leader.
Mourinho was furious at Pogba’s role in the equaliser scored by Wolves as they held United 1-1 at Old Trafford in Saturday, with the midfielder failing to track back after losing the ball.
After the game Pogba accused Mourinho of holding United back with his negative approach and tactics, which proved the final straw for the self-titled Special One.
The Portuguese chose to exact his revenge in brutal fashion, publicly humiliating the France World Cup winner in front of his team-mates for maximum impact and effect.
