Manchester United star midfielder Paul Pogba seems extremely uncertain of his future after intense speculation of a move away from the club in the summer. The French World cup winner is a mainstay in the current Manchester United set up but has failed to live up to the expectations of everyone at the club. He has managed to show a glimpse of what he is capable of but has never been consistent enough to make a mark in the Premier League for Manchester United. Jose Mourinho however, says that he is in the dark regarding the World cup winner’s future but has told the media that he has not spoken about leaving the club. Pogba was handed the captains armband this season, which looked like a last ditched attempt to keep the Frenchman at the club during a transfer window that saw serious interest from Barcelona.
🗣 “If I watch Mr Raiola saying the player wants to leave, then I will believe. In this moment, I am completely in the dark. The only thing that is clear for me is that the player never told me that he wants to leave.”— PF | Transfer News (@PurelyFootball) September 15, 2018

Mourinho says, ” The only thing that is clear for me is that the player never, never in all these days we are together, told me he wants to leave. Paul came back after the World Cup in the week before the start of the Premier League so we have been together for about two months or so and he has never told me that he wants to leave. So I can only comment on what is real for me, not in what I read, not in what I listen to. I have no direct relation with the people that write or the people I listen to.”
Jose was also asked if the agent of the Paul Pogba was making arrangements for the midfielder to leave Manchester United. Jose says that he won’t believe anything and everything in the media and also says that he would only believe those claims once Pogba’s agent speaks to him about it. He says that the player has never spoken to him about his will to depart the club and made no further comments.
Manchester United travel to Watford for their fourth game. Watford are yet to lose a single game this season and will give it everything they have got to get at least a point against United. The players need to let everything that is happening outside the pitch alone and concentrate on the challenge on hand.
