Rumours surrounding Paul Pogba's future at Manchester United continue to swirl, with the midfielder now reportedly working on an 'exit strategy' to leave Old Trafford according to one report.
Pogba's relationship with manager Jose Mourinho has been fractured in recent times, while the Frenchman was most recently dropped for United's Champions League clash with Young Boys, because of an apparent lack of commitment.
Now Tuttosport, as referenced by Sport Witness, claims the pair's relationship has shifted "from open war to cold war".
They claim that while Pogba is projecting an air of "tranquility" and reparation, his agent Mino Raiola is working tirelessly behind the scenes to engineer a move out of Old Trafford that is "economically acceptable" to the Red Devils.
They do however acknowledge that the 25-year-old's supreme marketability make the club somewhat more reluctant to sell him.
Pogba has never quite appeared settled in Manchester, whether that be because of performances or personnel, but his dissatisfaction grew louder this summer, and there were many reports that a move to Spain with Barcelona was on the cards.
He has also been regularly linked with a move back to Juventus, and at one point Corriere dello Sport were reporting that he had told some of his former teammates he was keen to return to Turin.
Following his World Cup triumph with Les Bleus in Russia, Pogba has only showed flashes of that form upon his return to the North East. In 17 appearances for United in 2018/19, he has five goals and four assists, a decent return, but he has also been found wanting on more than one high profile occasion.
