Paul Pogba ‘refusing to play for Man Utd despite being fit as he holds out for January transfer to Real Madrid’

Paul Pogba is reportedly refusing to play for Manchester United despite being fit in a bid to push through a January move to Real Madrid.

The French midfielder has been out of action since the 1-1 draw with Arsenal in September with a foot injury and there has been lots of speculation about his future.

The 26-year-old has spent time in Miami after having his cast removed and was filmed playing basketball as he continues his rehabilitation.

Although manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had no problem with the midfielder playing basketball: "We don't play basketball. I don't see many basketball players tackling ankles, twisting and turning with studs.

"He's not ready to train.'

"He had another test and scan just at the start of the international break and it's not healed yet,' the United boss said in a press conference last week.

"He's stepping up the recovery so he doesn't have to have the cast on.

"He's been out for six or seven weeks so he's gradually stepping it up, walking, on the treadmill and bike. We hope to see him in 2019."

Pogba was recently in Dubai as he continued to step up his recovery and Solskjaer will be hoping the midfielder is available to play as quickly as possible as his side are currently ninth in the league, nine points off the top four.

United could've cut that gap but let in a late equaliser against Sheffield United in yesterday's 3-3 draw at Bramall Lane.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
