Manchester United want to offload Paul Pogba in January as the midfielder continues to be decisive figure in the dressing room, reports say.

Pogba has seen his stock at United plummet in the last year and has repeatedly fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho.

The Frenchman was banished to the bench at the start of the month and has been unable to force his way back in, but did play 90 minutes in the 2-1 defeat to Valencia on Wednesday.

The Mirror claim United are ready to cut their losses with Pogba and sell the player for the second time.

United spent a club-record transfer fee to bring Pogba back from Juventus, but the 25-year-old has fallen well short of expectations at the club.

United are planning Pogbas exit regardless of whether Mourinho remains at the club.

Pogba will be in the shop window in January and United are prepared to send him out on loan with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.

Juventus are rumoured to want a reunion with Pogba, and United are determined to ensure no future manager inherits the problems of the current squad, and see Pogbas position in the team as an issue.

Pogba prefers a switch to Spain and his agent Mino Raiola has been sounding out suitors for the last 12 months.
