Jose Mourinho, the Manchester United manager says Paul Pogba never told him if he wanted to leave.
On his return to Manchester after France’s triumph at the World Cup, Pogba has cut a glum figure but Mourinho insists the midfielder “wants to stay”.
Mourinho said: “I can only comment on what is real for me, and not on what I read or what I listen to.” On the other hand, the player says that he would be fined if he discussed his true feelings after the opening day victory over Leicester.
During an an indifferent 2017-18 campaign for Pogba, the Frenchman fell out of favour at Old Trafford. However, his inspired performances in Russia, including a goal in the World Cup final against Croatia, has linked with a move to Barcelona this summer.
Speaking before France’s Nations League match against Germany this month, Pogba said: “My future is currently in Manchester. I am playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
However, Mourinho dismissed those comments, saying it is the “player’s problem and his relation with the media”.
