The Frenchman has come under increasing criticism for his performances in recent weeks and has seen his place in the side taken on a number of occasions by youngster Scott McTominay.

Last month The Sun, claimed Mourinho and Pogba had a "furious training-ground showdown" after the player was axed in the games against Huddersfield and Sevilla.

Attentions are now inevitably going to begin to turn towards the summer transfer window and the players Mourinho could look to strengthen his squad with.

But while Mourinho has been frustrated with Raiola's interference, he is aware he must tread carefully as he represents other United stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Romero.

Pogba has, however, told his friends that he intends to stay at United for the foreseeable future.

It has been widely reported that Pogba has fallen out with United boss Jose Mourinho, with the midfielder refusing to talk about his manager in a recent interview.

Raiola is also said to be attempting to secure a new contract for Pogba, who now earns around £150,000 a week less than new arrival Alexis Sanchez.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday night.

'But a team of 11 when you don't have a minimum of six, seven players performing and wanting to play and wanting to have the responsibility to have the ball, the desire to really play - because one thing is to play and another is to be on the pitch - it's hard to have a good performance'.

"We don't have a match in two days or a reason to think about another match".
