Isoke|July. 08, 2019
Paul Pogba appeared to be involved in an altercation with Manchester United team-mate Jesse Lingard during the club’s pre-season tour.
The Frenchman is heavily expected to leave Old Trafford this summer after expressing his desire for a ‘new challenge’ , with his agent Mino Raiola also confirming the midfielder wants to go .
He has travelled to Perth with the Red Devils amid interest from Juventus and Real Madrid, but it seems the 26-year-old may have already burned bridges.
In a video shared by the Red Devils on Twitter, he can be seen exchanging heated words with close pal Lingard during a stroll through Perth.
Pogba then appears to step towards his team-mate, who looks far from pleased, before Victor Lindelof grabs hold of the Frenchman, seemingly to diffuse the situation.
