There will always be rumours - Pogba brushes off Barcelona talk


United could now make a move for the 21-year-old midfielder in the January transfer window, with Manchester City also interested in the Portugal global midfielder, according to The Sun.

Pogba has remained an ever-present starter for United in the 2018-19 campaign despite the uncertainty surrounding his future.

Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has played down reports of a January move to Barcelona, although he stopped short of denying a desire to leave.

"Listen. I joke about Manchester City but they are playing great football", he said.

"Rumours are rumours", Pogba said.

He has also tried to talk down the prospect of a move away from Old Trafford.

However, in a column in the last few days, Phil Thomas believes if any one of Mourinho or Pogba is going to quit soon, it will be the manager.

Apple said the tariffs would raise the cost of its US operations and put it at a disadvantage to foreign rivals. Trade Representative's public notice and comment period for the proposed additional tariffs ended Thursday.

The former United youth player returned to the club after four years with Juventus, signing for a then world record £89m fee in 2016.

One thing I can assure you: I will always give 100 per cent, no matter which coach I always give everything, I cannot say more.

The Mirror report that the 1998 World Cup winning star has told close friends that he is expecting a call from Manchester United amidst Mourinho's tribulations at the club.

It wouldn't be the first time the two Manchester clubs had gone head-to-head for a big name signature after United gazumped the Citizens in the race for Alexis Sanchez during the winter transfer window last season.

Pogba did little to cool rumours with what appeared to be subtle criticism of manager Jose Mourinho following United's opening-day win over Leicester.

"I think what's happening is two massive egos, and [neither] of them are backing down right now", he told Sky Sports.
