Player and manager appeared to argue at Carrington despite the rare presence of television cameras at the open training session, with Mourinho objecting to a video Pogba uploaded to Instagram after Tuesday's Carabao Cup defeat to Derby County.

Ever since the end of last season, Pogba's future at United has been uncertain, with Barcelona or Juventus reportedly interested in signing the World Cup victor.

In extended footage, which lasted for over two minutes, Pogba appeared to be outspoken - in whatever they were discussing - before they both walked away.

And if the locker room is lost on top of the losing this team has experienced on the field, then it wouldn't be a surprise to see United finish the season with a different manager.

"I'm shell-shocked. What a performance", Lampard said to Sky Sports.

"The only truth is I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore".

The Italian giants are the World Cup winner's first choice, however, Juve would have to sell some of their current players in order to make a deal happen, to balance the books and avoid any issues with Financial Fair Play.

The 25-year-old was dispossessed in the move that led to Joao Moutinho's equaliser, with the midfielder saying afterwards that United should "attack, attack, attack".

Mourinho claims there is no war with Pogba, commenting: "No fall out, no problems at all".

The pair's strained relationship is in stark contrast to the one between the Portuguese and Frank Lampard during their successful time together at Chelsea.

"Don't get me wrong, I don't think it was the brightest thing Paul Pogba ever said at the weekend, but what I will say is what this club does is attack".

A club source explained: 'Jose is all about the team and he was seriously annoyed by the whole announcement.

"If I was his big brother I would tell him: Enough's enough".

However, substitute United 'keeper Lee Grant failed to stop any of Derby's penalties and Jones finally faltered to compound a bad start to the season for Mourinho's men, who already trail Premier League leaders Liverpool by eight points.

Wolves equalised at Old Trafford on Saturday after Pogba was easily dispossessed in the centre-circle.
