Jose Mourinho has publicly declared that he wants Paul Pogba to be a Manchester United player next season.
The £89 million France international has come in for increased scrutiny this season after a number of less than impressive performances for the Red Devils. His poor form, which coincided with a run of poor results for his club have seen speculation grow that Jose Mourinho wants to force English football’s most expensive player out of the club.
However, speaking to the media ahead of his side’s penultimate fixture of the season, Mourinho tried to put those rumours to bed, insisting that he wants, and expects him to stay beyond this summer.
“I think he is going to be here next season. That’s my feeling,” Mourinho said.
“I can give the guarantee that I don’t want him to leave. I can give the guarantee that the club does not want to sell.
“And I can give the guarantee that we don’t have any approach from him, from his agent, or any club. So in this moment, for me, he is staying.”
Pogba has started to look a bit more like the confident player that we saw at the beginning of the season in recent weeks, even picking up Manchester United’s Player of the Month award for April, after his two goal heroics in last months Manchester Derby.
