1:27 Puel 'understands Maguire speculation'

Paul Pogba will NOT agitate for a move away from Manchester United this month.

Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Raphael Varane were all linked, but no deals materialised in the window.

For now, though, expect to see Pogba at Old Trafford at least for the first half of the upcoming season.

Mourinho has consistently complained in recent weeks over his lack of backing from the United board and also had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with.

"I don't think I was playing as well as I could with my attacking capabilities last season, and that's what I'm known for".

"I don't remember in my career to be in so much in trouble to make my changes because I wanted to make five or six and I could only make three".

Neither side were able to put out their strongest side with players returning from the World Cup and Vardy, Lukaku and Young among those on the bench, while Andreas Pereira played in midfield for Mourinho.

"Will his style of play bring us an EPL (English Premier League) title?" But at the same time, I feel I wanted more attack and I feel that Martial coming into the game in the last 20 minutes for Alexis could have given us the second goal to kill the game. "But very complete performance, he just has to keep going, the mentality was very good, the tactical discipline was very good too and he had the power to move forward and score an important goal for us".

"We don't have a penalty-taker, it's how we feel, and I made a decision to take it", Pogba told Sky Sports.

Fresh off the back of a sensational World Cup-winning campaign this summer with France, Paul Pogba was thrown straight into the starting line-up for United, being given the captain's armband as well.

And his next comment has already led to backlash from Manchester United fans on social media after Mourinho said finishing behind City wasn't such a bad thing....

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us". "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies".

He wanted many more, as he pointed out numerous times on United's preseason tour, but as deadline day rumbled on there was still no news.

It's reported by The Sun that United were actually prepared to shell out £100m for French World Cup victor Varane, but Real Madrid were not interested in selling.
