What the papers say
Paul Pogba has reportedly told his team-mates that he will leave Manchester United in January if Jose Mourinho is still manager. The Sun says the France World Cup winner is fed up of arguing with the Portuguese following a number of run-ins and has told people close to him that he is better off not playing in a Mourinho team.
Meanwhile, United scouts fear players will not want to sign with the club in the current climate, according to the Daily Express, which could leave plans Mourinho may have for a January shake-up dead in the water.
Premier League newcomers Wolves are considering a January bid for Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna, the Scottish Sun reports. Scouts were sent to look at the 21-year-old in action last weekend, in the Dons’ 1-0 win over Motherwell, as Wolves look to bolster their backline.
