The Manchester United squad are concerned about Pogba’s reaction to being told he’s no longer on penalty duty, according to The Sun.

They worry that the decision to axe the World Cup winner from spot-kicks will turn his head away from Old Trafford.

Pogba saw his second-half penalty saved against Wolves on Monday night, when the score was tied at 1-1.

Before taking the penalty, Pogba had an on-field discussion with Marcus Rashford about who should take it.

Rashford had scored from the spot in the previous match against Chelsea, whereas Pogba has missed four in the past 12 months.

Solskjaer was reportedly fuming with both players, and claimed they should have decided who would be on penalty duty before the match.

After blasting Pogba in the dressing room after the match, and booting him off penalties in front of the rest of the team, the squad are now worried that he’ll reinforce his desire to leave the club.

The midfielder had previously revealed that he’s ready for a new challenge.

In June, the France international put a number of European teams on alert when he claimed that he would be willing to leave United.

“There is a lot of thinking [going on],” he said. “I have been three years in Manchester and have been doing great.

“Some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody, like everywhere else.

“After this season and everything that happened, with my season being my best season, it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

Pogba has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, to play under his idol, Zinedine Zidane.

But, as it stands, United’s valuation of Pogba is far too high for Real Madrid – especially as they’re still in pursuit of Neymar.

United drew against Wolves after going ahead through Anthony Martial in the first-half. A second-half screamer from Ruben Neves brought Wolves back into the tie and neither side could muster a winning goal.

The Red Devils’ next match is against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday (3pm).
