According to the Telegraph, Paul Pogba plans to give Didier Deschamps a detailed account of his troubles at Manchester United, whilst away on international duty this week.

Pogba has started just four of United’s past 11 games due poor form, injury and illness and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho has come under strain.

The France midfielder puts his bad form down to being played in the wrong role – as a deep-lying midfielder – when his attributes suggest he would be better further forward.

And with the World Cup looming, Deschamps wants to “better understand” the reasons behind the midfielder’s struggles, and the player is keen to confide in his national team coach and get matters off his chest.

France face Colombia on Friday and the pair are expected to discuss the situation at Old Trafford before then. Deschamps’ side travel to St-Petersburg four day later where they take on Russia.


Deschamps is believed to be concerned about how Pogba was dropped to the bench for United’s Champions League defeat by Sevilla and the FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton.

Another France international with an uncertain future is Anthony Martial, so Deschamps may begin to see a pattern forming with the United manager.

In the past, Mourinho hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with. It’s very much a reoccurring theme when he spits the dummy out.

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness at Old Trafford at the moment. Something has got to give – and we cannot rule out Deschamps getting involved in some capacity to sound things out.
