Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is losing patience with Paul Pogba over his contract stand-off. The Daily Mail says Ferguson is growing increasingly exasperated with Pogba's refusal to sign a new contract at Manchester United.

The French midfielder, 19, is rated as one of the brightest prospects at Old Trafford, but Ferguson has so far failed to convince him to commit to the club beyond the end of the season, as Juventus hover with the offer of a four-year deal worth £20,000 a week.

Pogba is said to be reconsidering his position and will keep his options open for now.
