  • Man Utd transfer news Harry Maguire

Amid rumors that he will sign for Barcelona this summer or in an upcoming transfer window (remember, the transfer window in Spain is open for a few more weeks), Manchester United star Paul Pogba has given a cryptic response regarding his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

Jamie Vardy of Leicester City celebrates with Kelechi Iheanacho of Leicester City after he scored their second goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Leicester City at Old Trafford on August 10, 2018 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

A 2-1 victory on Friday night, built around a stirring performance and an early penalty from World Cup victor Pogba as well as Luke Shaw's first career goal, might have been cause for good cheer but Mourinho chose the occasion to revisit his concerns over the club's recent business. "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

Pogba, who was given the captaincy by Mourinho on Friday, summed up what it meant for him to be happy and comfortable.

If you're not happy, you can not give your best.

"We've learnt from the past that, if he takes too many players on like he did at Chelsea and Real Madrid, then there's only one thing that will happen". That's all I say.


It's been widely claimed for quite some time that Pogba doesn't get along with Jose Mourinho, who made comments after the victory that appear to verify some tension between the club manager and CEO Ed Woodward.

"I am surprised by what Pogba has said, because it's pretty bold, I think it shows his confidence".

"When you have everybody with you, everybody next to you, you know they want to fight for you, obviously it's going to be easier", he said.

He is anticipating a hard season as a result, and criticised the club's board for failing to deliver on plans he had put in place "for many months".

"I always love the club (United)".

"When you look at Mourinho when he first came into the Premier League, he was happy, he was cheeky, he was smiley, he was arrogant in a good way", Shearer said on Match of the Day. "For me, it was a dream come true".
