Man Utd players are frustrated at Mason Greenwood and annoyed at the falling standards at the club, according to reports.
The Red Devils were heavily criticised for their poor performance in their 1-0 loss to Wolves on Monday with the Red Devils remaining in seventh place in the Premier League table.
The summer arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane heightened expectations that Man Utd could get closer to their rivals.
However, the Premier League side sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier in the season before replacing him with Ralf Rangnick as interim boss until the end of the season.
The results have been okay under Rangnick with 10 points taken from his first five Premier League matches but the displays have been poor.
There have been reports over the last few days over growing unrest in the Man Utd dressing with a number of players wanting to leave the club.
The Daily Mail insist that there is a ‘toxic’ atmosphere at United and Rangnick has ‘identified a selfish element’ that the club need to sell on.
And the Manchester Evening News now claims that Man Utd players are ‘sick to death of the dwindling standards’ at the club ‘and resentment is festering among some of their under-used players’.
‘Several high-profile players’ were already ‘disenchanted’ before Rangnick’s appointment while other are annoyed about their lack of playing time in a bloated squad.
Some Man Utd players believe Jesse Lingard is ‘overdue a run’ in the team, while Greenwood’s ‘apparent greediness is also believed to have riled some teammates’.
A source has told the Manchester Evening News that ‘confrontation is brewing between a number of players and Rangnick if moves are not sanctioned this month.’
Meanwhile, former Man Utd midfielder Paul Ince has not seen progress under Rangnick and thinks the supporters are getting “hoodwinked” again.
Asked if there had been progress, Ince told Sky Sports: “If I’m being totally honest, then no.
“It reminds me of when Ole first took over at Manchester United and he had an easy fixture list – Cardiff, teams like that – and it came off the back of a (Jose) Mourinho team where the players didn’t really like Mourinho and the atmosphere was hostile.
“Ole came in, had a great fixture list to go into, changed the system, changed certain things, made it a happy camp and they started winning games.
“I think we all got hoodwinked into the fact that this was the way forward and we were making progression. I get that same feeling now.
“The fixture list that Ralf has come into is the perfect fixture list for any manager managing a big club like Manchester United. The performances have been absolutely – apart from the Palace one at home – they’ve been bang average, they really, really have.
“If you could ask any Manchester United fan sitting there now who knows about football, do you see a progression in the development of what we have seen over the last five games? – you actually have to say no.
“Do you see Ralf being the manager come the end of the season? The answer on the basis at this moment – and it is early doors – you’ve got to say no.
“I’m not sure if this job is a poisoned chalice. It’s the biggest job in the world, the biggest club in the world, but it’s like a poisoned chalice.”
