The recent spat between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba has created a lot of focus and hysteria in and around Manchester United, with fans too perplexed after seeing the build-up.

Pogba and Jose have shared a frosty relationship since last season, but things have now reached a new low between the two.

Manchester United survived the summer window of 2018 by keeping Pogba at the club. There was genuine interest from Barcelona, who saw their bid getting turned down.

Perhaps there was a feeling of positivity that things will develop into something adequate between the two personalities, but that hasn’t materialised.

Mourinho gave Pogba the arm-band and made him the club’s vice-captain. But just a few games later, the Frenchman saw himself being stripped off the same.

His criticism of the style of United’s play after the 1-1 draw against Wolves last week got Jose angry. Now, the situation at the club is reportedly divided.

Pogba is believed to have got some players on his side, with a few still being loyal to Jose. In the power battle, reports have come up that Pogba’s dear friend Romelu Lukaku has suddenly decided to cool off his friendship.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Lukaku has been a bit distant from the Frenchman in the wake of things that have been happening, as he doesn’t want to be perceived on a wrong note.

The report states that although Lukaku and Pogba remain good friends, some figures at Old Trafford have maintained that the two are not as close as they used to be.

The dynamic at Carrington has changed a bit, and things aren’t all bright. Perhaps all this suggest that the Belgian feels Pogba is wrong on how he has behaved recently.
