Jesse Lingard And Paul Pogba 'Clashed' Ahead Of Pre-Season Training With Manchester United
An unsettled Paul Pogba has caused early headaches for Manchester United after an apparent heated exchange with Jesse Lingard in Australia.
The Red Devils landed in Perth after a 16-hour trip ahead of their training session on Monday.
But United uploaded a clip on Twitter that has caused quite a stir with fans as it showed Pogba, 26, and Lingard apparently clash with one another.
Pogba exchanged words with an unhappy Lingard as he moved in closer to the 26-year-old English attacking midfielder.
But Victor Lindelof sprung into action as he pulled the French midfielder back by throwing his arm around him.
The brief exchange between Pogba and Lingard has sent United fans flocking to Twitter to respond to the incident.
Did Lindelof just have to break up something between Pogba and Lingard?! :flushed::sweat_smile: I've slowed it down for a closer look. #mufc pic.twitter.com/LVSp4SaGZC

Going by Lingard's face looks legit.
Pogba is just desperate to leave.

Pogba looks like he's about to fight Lingard at 0:11 before Lindelof calms him down. Can't tell if it's real or not though.

Pogba revealed his desire to quit United in recent months and both Real Madrid and Juventus are interested in the World Cup winner.
Super agent Mino Raiola, who represents Pogba, recently said
that the United star wanted to leave this summer.
"Everyone within the club from the manager to the owner knows Paul's wishes," the Italian-born Dutchman explained.
"Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that.
"Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are."
Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men will kick off their pre-season tour against Perth Glory on 13th July and Leeds United on 17th July.
