Cape Town - Star midfielder Paul Pogba is 'not convinced that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man' to take Manchester United forward, according to reports in the English press.

The France international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for a while but the rumours have ramped up since Zinedine Zidane returned as their manager.

Pogba, who has been named in the PFA top-flight Team of the Year, had a brilliant resurgence after Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho, but his form has dipped again in recent weeks.

The Sun reports that Pogba is 'tearing Manchester United's dressing room apart' which will likely see the end to his time at the club.

The 26-year-old is understood to have told team-mates that he doesn't think United have 'made any progress' since he left for Juventus seven years ago.

The report adds that United fear that Solskjaer can't handle Pogba's big personality and that he 'needs a firm hand to keep him in check'.

According to The Sun, Pogba 'remains a powerful and influential voice among the rest of the squad' and 'runs the United dressing room'.

If true, the reports will be music to the ears of Real Madrid boss Zidane, with Pogba's agent Mino Raiola reportedly cancelling a meeting with United last week over the possibility of a new contract as his client is 'so determined to quit'.
