Paul Pogba has admitted that his relationship with Jose Mourinho is strained, but has insisted that they both share the common objective to win.
Pogba has been the subject of plenty of media chatter in recent months after showing inconsistent form during his two-year spell at Manchester United, with Jose Mourinho having publicly demanded that he put in the mature performances that he displayed at the World Cup at club level.
He was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window, and his recent comments have done little to dampen the speculation surrounding his future.
However, his latest comments have seen him admit that he does have some problems with Jose Mourinho, but has dismissed talk linking him with a move to the Nou Camp as ‘rumours’:
“To speak about a transfer… I am under contract,” Pogba told Telefoot.
“There have always been little things with the coach, our relationship is still the same, manager-player. We have common objectives, which are to win.
“So long as you see that I am not in a Barcelona shirt, that is because I am at Manchester United, there will always be rumours.”
