Pogba is growing increasingly frustrated with United's refusal to consider his request to leave Old Trafford, Daily Star reports.

The World Cup winner intends to communicate his views directly to boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on his return to training this week.

The midfielder's agent, Mino Raiola, has twice traveled to Manchester to communicate his client's intention to quit United for a second time.
