Manchester United players are reportedly growing frustrated with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his treatment of French midfielder Paul Pogba.
With the France international's future at the club in doubt as his contract approaches its expiry date, he has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
Solskjaer has been keen to attempt to keep Pogba motivated as he tries to convince him to sign a new deal with United and also perform on the pitch.
However, the added attention Solskjaer has been giving the 28-year-old is believed to have left some members of the United dressing room feeling frustrated.
ESPN report that Pogba's team-mates have been left frustrated by what they view as preferential treatment.
This comes despite recent praise for Solskjaer and his man-management style of coaching.
Solskjaer's predecessor Jose Mourinho often bemoaned the fact that he had tried to motivate Pogba with a mix of public praise and criticism to little avail.
Will Paul Pogba leave Manchester United in January? Let us know in the comments section below.
By the time Mourinho left the club in 2018, his relationship with the former Juventus midfielder had completely broken down.
Solskjaer has refrained from criticising Pogba in public and is believed to have gone out of his way in private to keep the midfielder happy and engaged at the club.
With Pogba out of contract at the end of the season, he could well be sold in January with French giants Paris Saint-Germain understood to be long-time admirers.
His agent Mino Raiola has been particularly vocal in recent months, fuelling rumours of an exit while also blaming Solskjaer for his client's inconsistent performances.
If Pogba were to leave in January, then he may have played his final game for United after he suffered a thigh injury in training last week while on international duty.
He is not expected to return until the end of December, meaning he will miss the end of United's Champions League group stage campaign as well as their next nine league matches.
