Paul Pogba’s relationship with Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly become “complicated” amid comments from the midfielder which appeared to show he is unhappy at the club.

The France international described his time with Les Bleus over the last week as a “breath of fresh air”, leading to fresh speculation about his future.

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Pogba is “not happy” at Old Trafford.

It’s thought that United are keen to extend his contract past 2022, even though his agent Mino Raiola is yet to open talks with the club.

Pogba’s main issues at present appear to be with Solskjaer who has demoted him to a bit-part player in recent weeks.

It is claimed that the pair have a “complicated relationship”, and he is not thinking about prolonging his time at Old Trafford.

Opening up on his current struggles, Pogba told RTL: "This is a period that I haven't previously experienced in my career, as I've been used to playing all the time and getting into my rhythm, so that's suddenly changed.”

"I feel I'm gradually getting back into it now. I'm rediscovering my form. That's the sort of performance that I need to produce and I need to do so consistently.

"[Playing with France] it's like a window that opens up. It's a breath of fresh air when you come here. We have a truly fantastic squad. When we come here, we're all happy.

"We're all pleased to see one another. We really enjoy ourselves on the pitch.

"That doesn't mean we don't enjoy ourselves at club level, but it's not the same here. We're a real family, and we have so much fun when we come here."
