Jose Mourinho demands 'best' of Cup hero Paul Pogba


Napoli do not know whether Manchester United will play ball, but coach Carlo Ancelotti is ready to welcome Darmian.

The newspaper says United have ended their interest in Ivan Perisic and switched their attention to his international-mate following his excellent performances at the World Cup which saw Croatia reach their first ever final.

"So I think a team that is working for six weeks minimum with all the players except one central defender and one striker that can join in the last week and probably be available. that is clear it's a much better situation for them".

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is willing to let Darmian depart Old Trafford this summer and the Italy global has been linked with several clubs. Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football.

"During a season you can do something important, then something less important and after that something a lot less important and you start to lose your focus. until you do something important again".

"When we welcome players back from the World Cup, I hope we can give them the opportunity to continue advancing their ambitions and perform in the Premier League".

Mourinho hailed the 25-year-old's performances throughout the competition as "absolutely brilliant". It's not good for him or me, not good for anyone", said Mourinho.

The forward impressed for Croatia at the World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this month, attracting interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world. "You are in the group phase, you go to the last 16, to the quarterfinals, to the semifinals, to the finals", he added.

"So I think it was the ideal environment for him".

Paul Scholes has given a brutal assessment of Paul Pogba, after the midfielder's magnificent campaign in the World Cup, where he helped his national side, France, win the title.

But as questions are being asked why United aren't getting more out of him, Mourinho claims the closed-off nature of tournament football suited the Frenchman.

"This feeds the concentration of a player, so I think it was the ideal environment for him".
