Man United weigh up massive January swap deal

Paul Pogba has admitted that there will'always be talk around his Manchester United future

Paul Pogba has admitted that there will'always be talk around his Manchester United future

Pogba has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the wake of his troubled return to United from Juventus in 2016.

Pogba featured in a friendly clash against Germany during the global break and was coy about his future.

The reasons Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba will win any "fight" against manager, Jose Mourinho at the club has been revealed. "I'm trying to do my job and work on myself physically", he said following France's 0-0 Nations League draw with Germany.

"I'm under contract", Pogba told Telefoot.

His praise for Sir Alex Ferguson reflects badly on José Mourinho, who is under growing pressure to improve results at Old Trafford as Zinedine Zidane waits in the wings.

United finished 19 points behind Manchester City last season as Guardiola's cavalier tactics tore through the Premier League.

Apple responds to President Trump's proposed tariffs
This morning on Twitter , Trump urged Apple to build new manufacturing plants here in the U.S. to avoid the tariffs. Apple said the tariffs would raise the cost of its US operations and put it at a disadvantage to foreign rivals.

The recent toning down of Mourinho's language towards Pogba is perhaps a sign of his realisation that there can only be one victor in what has become a two-way battle of egos.

"As long as you do not see me in a Barcelona jersey, it's because I'm in Manchester".

Asked about his relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho, Pogba replied: "We have a pure coach-player relationship, that's right. I always give everything for United - I can not say more".

Despite only being in the second year of his five-year deal following his switch from Juventus, ESPN have claimed that United have pulled themselves out of talks with Pogba's agent Mino Raiola.

Manchester United are considering rivalling Man City in the race to sign Ruben Neves from Wolves in January.

Perhaps it is all a game to Pogba and his representatives because they know, whatever the outcome, they will emerge as well-remunerated winners.
