Manchester United are being damaged by their political pantomime

A report from RMC claims that Pogba instead wants to remain at Old Trafford, and become a leader for the next generation.

World Cup victor Pogba was rumoured to have been pushing for an Old Trafford exit in the lead up to transfer deadline day.

The midfielder was arguably United's best player throughout, bossing the midfield while being the main creative outlet for the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford.

Mourinho had implied Pogba - whose agent Mini Raiola has reportedly been talking with Barcelona - had flourished under Didier Deschamps at the World Cup because he could not be distracted by his entourage or by his commercial obligations.

Thoughts on Pogba's current situation at Old Trafford?

"What do you mean being the real Pogba?" he asked.

"There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", commented Pogba.

Pierson then spoke to Patton's statement refuting Manigault's claims of having heard a tape with Trump using the racial word. Last night Trump denied allegations he used the N-word and called Manigault Newman 'wacky and deranged'.

The World Cup victor did little to ease the situation after stating that there are things he "cannot say otherwise I will get fined". "So I asked Paul and he put himself forward for the team and was very, very good for us".

On Sunday, Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu left the door open to a move for Pogba, while vice president Jordi Mestre told ESPN FC that the club would be open to any "big opportunities" between now and the end of August.

"I think he is brilliant, he has to try and do his best for the team like any other player".

"I actually like the signings Jose Mourinho has made, they're more along the lines of the players I'd like to see at this football club".

The Frenchman has been linked with a potential move away from the English topflight and the Spanish champions have emerged as his likely destination.

Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez on Friday argued over who should take a penalty kick during their 2-1 win over Leicester City thanks to goals from both Pogba and Luke Shaw.
