The Man Utd squad have travelled to Australia this week as they begin their pre-season schedule ahead of what promises to be a crucial campaign.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will run the rule over his players as he looks to get them in the best shape possible ahead of the new season, as they look to bounce back after the disappointment of last year.
Unfortunately for the Norwegian tactician, it appears as though Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard might not be on great terms, as these Man Utd fans below spotted something interesting in a video uploaded by the club shortly after they touched down in Perth.
As seen in the clip below, it appears as though Victor Lindelof has to step in and calm things down as Pogba and Lingard have an exchange, with the latter looking less than impressed with what was said to him.
It’s unclear as to whether there was a genuine issue between the pair at this stage, or perhaps if the video has caught an innocent moment and made it look worse than it actually is.
Nevertheless, as seen in the reaction below, it has emerged as a concern for some Man Utd fans, as the last thing that they want to be worrying about is possible in-fighting among the current squad.
As noted by The Times, Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has publicly revealed that his client is looking for a move away this summer, and so having him on the pre-season tour may not be the smartest idea in terms of team morale and focus.

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.

Wouldn’t surprise me at all if it’s real, look at Jesse’s face ?

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

Oh dear, 0:11 in, Lindelof seems to break up Pogba & Lingard. It’s all going to shit and we haven’t kicked a ball. This season could turn very sour very quick. https://t.co/UP4u6qSHpu

A bit of a feud going on between Pogba & Lingard, at first glance it looked like Lindelöf was just hugging Pogba, however on second glance you see the facial expressions of Lingard & Pogba plus the body language and looks as though there is a problem. #MUFC pic.twitter.com/Il7gFiFLfU
