Football transfer pundit Ian McGarry has revealed what is going to happen between the Manchester United owners, the executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho’s future at Old Trafford has strongly come under threat as his side have poorly started the 2018 Premier League season.
There is also a poor relationship between Mourinho and United’s club-record signing Paul Pogba which brings a worse atmosphere in the dressing room.
But Ian McGarry admits he heard that United are planning to part company with the Portuguese boss.

“There’s clearly a dysfunctional relationship between Mourinho and Pogba. It’s not going to wait,” McGarry told the Transfer Window podcast.
“It’s worsened for that dressing room dressing down to be given and there’s a massive decision to be made.”
“At this moment in time the Glazers, from what I’ve heard, not even Woodward for that matter, are willing to part company with Jose Mourinho on the basis of a resolution with Pogba.”
“However, parting with Paul Pogba may still be the best case scenario for the club.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Mino Raiola has already been in touch with Woodward regarding what was said in the dressing room last Saturday evening and be demanded his player be given priority.”
“I do wonder if Ed Woodward is intelligent or if he is intuitive enough,” McGarry added.
“Even though the Pogba experiment in bringing him back, and remember it was Ferguson who let Pogba go, he did want to keep him but saw the dangers going forward of Mino Raiola as his agent and Pogba’s own ego and personality, they didn’t fight to the death to keep him. They let him go to Juventus.”
“I wonder if Woodward is both intuitive enough and courageous enough to back his manager and say ‘this is our Beckham moment in transfer window 2019 and we need to get rid of the virus to allow the club and the players, who are around Pogba, to express themselves as a team rather than as an individual and make this club work again’.”
Mourinho, whose side are languishing down in eighth with 18 points behind leaders Man City, is said to have called Pogba a ‘virus’ in the dressing room last week.
