Pogba still happy at Man Utd, insists Mourinho

Manchester United vs Leicester City

Earlier this week, Pogba told teammates, staff and executives at United that he was "desperate" to leave the club amidst a conflicting relationship with manager Jose Mourinho which has dated back to February, per Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail. "We have to try and get the best out of every player".

"I am not confident", Mourinho said of United's chance of new signings on Thursday morning, speaking ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester.

United didn't sign anyone on deadline day and even though the European transfer window remains open Pogba appears set to stay at United. "Yes I am a United fan and it was disappointing".

Courtois' replacement at Stamford Bridge is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when Chelsea paid his €80m release clause at Athletic Bilbao, but reports United are ready to make Leicester City's Harry Maguire the world's costliest defender now seem unlikely to come to fruition.

And now, according to The Sun, Manchester United were willing to spend as much as £100 million on Real Madrid centre-back and World Cup victor Raphael Varane.

"I'm coming into a club that has just won three Champions Leagues in a row and it's important to keep winning all the trophies we can", he said.

"I focus just on what we have and we go with everything we have to the first match". "You'll see then which teams are candidates". Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Man. United 2, Leicester City 0. I enjoyed last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position this club has had in five years.

"I am not sitting here having a discussion about Man Utd making the top four, neither should any of their supporters, neither should any of their board members, and neither, by the way, should any player or manager of that football club", he said. That's the only thing good enough for them.

The England stars were given an extended break following their exploits at the World Cup this summer and only rejoined the rest of the Foxes squad this week.

"Twelve months ago they were unprepared to do that deal, it beggars belief". It's not like Manchester United to do it like that. Craig Burley speculates about whether Jose Mourinho is being driven out of Old Trafford.
