Paul Pogba has fuelled speculation about his Manchester United future by refusing to rule out an exit from Old Trafford. The Reds have endured an uncomfortable start to the season as their inability to further strengthen their squad was compounded by shock back-to-back defeats that ramped up the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho.
Sunday’s 2-0 win at Burnley was welcome relief for United ahead of the international break, but Pogba has stirred the pot just days into it.
There have been questions over the club-record signing’s happiness at United over recent months and the World Cup winner has done little to dampen such talk.
“There was a lot of talk, but that’s the way things are,” Pogba told Sky Sport Deutschland. “I’m under contract in Manchester.
“My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract. I’m playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months?”
These comments are unlikely to go down well at Old Trafford, where the club hierarchy was never moved to sell a player attracting interest from Barcelona, while Juventus are also said to be keen on taking him back.
