Fantastic footage of Paul Pogba-Jose Mourinho training ground spat emerges

We don't play again until next season.

The midfielder moved to Old Trafford in 2016 from Juventus in a $114 million transfer deal and has been linked by the media with another big-money move, to Barcelona.

While this further fractured the relationship between manager and Pogba, it is understood that the executive have no intention of asking Mourinho to reconsider the decision.

Many believed it was due to the Frenchman saying that the Red Devils should "attack, attack, attack" when playing at home following their 1-1 draw with Wolves. "Myself. I am the manager, I can make these decisions". No fall out. The person who made the decision to be second-captain was also me.

Lampard had his victory stolen away with a last minute late header from the lanky Fellaini to level the scores and give United another shot at redemption.

The 8-7 shootout loss to a second-tier team is another setback for Mourinho, with United already eight points behind leader Liverpool after six games in the Premier League.

United, whose squad includes French World Cup victor Paul Pogba, Spain goalkeeper David de Gea and Chile forward Alexis Sanchez, said revenue is expected to be between 615 million pounds and 630 million pounds in the year to next June.

It was a downbeat conclusion to a torrid day for United after relations between Mourinho and French World Cup victor Pogba reportedly hit a new low.

Pogba has worn the armband in Antonio Valencia's absence three times this season, including the shock 3-2 humbling at Brighton that led him to concede they did not deserve to win as the hosts had "more hunger".

Despite the widespread perception that United's football has fallen behind City-a club once dismissed by former manager Alex Ferguson as "noisy neighbours"-Woodward said the club's priority was still on-the-pitch success".

Just like against Wolverhampton Wanderers over the weekend, Derby took advantage of United's profligacy with an equaliser. To go down early at Old Trafford and play as well as they did was superb.

But Harry Wilson equalized with a free kick in the 59th and United's problems deepened when goalkeeper Romero was sent off in the 67th for handling outside the box.
