Jose Mourinho Dismisses Paul Pogba Exit Talk

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has indicated that Paul Pogba would not be leaving the club during this summer’s transfer window. The France international has experienced a mixed run of form this season and this has witnessed him feature on the substitutes’ bench on a couple of occasions.

Despite this, the Frenchman has remained a valuable member of Mourinho’s side since his arrival and the Portuguese manager has now ruled out the possibility of his exit by saying: “I think he’s going to be here next season. That’s my feeling. I can give the guarantee that I don’t want him to leave, that the club doesn’t want to sell him and I can give you the guarantee that we don’t have any approach from him or his agent or from any club. In this moment for me, he’s staying, yes.”

During the months of February and March, Pogba found himself behind Scott McTominay in the pecking order for a midfield spot but the international break thereafter has done wonders to his confidence. The midfielder managed to end his lean streak with a goal for France in a friendly against Russia and he has since come out with flying colours for the Red Devils.

Manchester United have been placed in the runner-up spot for the most part of the Premier League season and they can cement this position by picking up at least a point against West Ham United in midweek. Pogba is likely to start in his game despite failing to impress in the Brighton defeat and he needs to put in a strong showing to maintain his good run of form since April. Pogba has notched three goals and two assists in his last six appearances and this includes a brace which sparked a dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City.
