Paul Pogba has refused to deny that he could leave Manchester United over the course of the season.

Manchester United are reluctant to sell Pogba, and rejected a bid from Barcelona during the summer transfer window of £50m and two players.

However the French World Cup winner has reportedly decided that he wishes to leave for Barcelona, and he has also been linked with a transfer to his former side Juventus.

Pogba spoke to Sky Sports Germany before his side's friendly against Germany on Thursday night, and was happy to entertain a future move, saying:

“There was a lot of talk about it [a transfer] but it was like that. I am under contract at Manchester [United].

" My future right now is with Manchester. I have a contract. Currently, I play there, but who knows what will happen in the next couple of months."

Jose Mourinho's relationship with Pogba has been a source of tension since the start of last season, and Pogba was less than effusive in his praise for his manager:

“We have a coach-player relationship, it’s like that.

“One thing I can promise: I will always give it 100 per cent, regardless for which coach. I give it my all for United always. That’s all I can say.”

Pogba has played poorly for much of last season and started in inconsistent form at the start of this season. He has claimed he is not able to speak about his true feelings without being fined.
