Manchester United would get rid of manager Jose Mourinho before selling star midfielder Paul Pogba, according to one pundit.

The midfielder, a World Cup winner with France, has been the subject of speculation in recent days concerning both a possible transfer to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas reckons the former Juventus star will stay at Old Trafford past the end of the month, with Mourinho’s departure more likely.

“I can only see going one way unfortunately. I don’t think it will go Mourinho’s way,” Jenas exclusively told Express Sport.

“I think they would [rather get rid of Mourinho] because as a club it makes more sense to do so.

“Players are so powerful these days and then there’s the amount of money that Paul Pogba makes that football club, the amount of pull in terms of players coming to the club with Pogba there, the fact he makes them genuinely better as a team.

“They can replace Mourinho with another very good manger, there are plenty out there, and that’s the unfortunate position we’re in.

“I think Mourinho is also quite stubborn and I still think he’s right to be that way.

“I think some of the best managers in the world have that about them and they know what’s right, what’s wrong and what they need to win games. If they don’t get it, they’re not happy.

“That’s all that’s happened with Mourinho this year. He knows he’s not got enough to win the league.”
