Paul Pogba's Manchester United future unsettled by Jose Mourinho's criticism

Paul Pogba's Manchester United future unsettled by Jose Mourinho's criticism

Super agent Mino Raiola is pushing this week to engineer a move out of Manchester United for Paul Pogba.

It was a hard season at Old Trafford for Pogba previous year, but he ended it on a high being a key player for France as they lifted the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Valverde did little to dispel the rumours that the reigning La Liga champions would be interested in making an approach, although they are likely to face stiff competition for the signature of the player if he were to become available, with Juventus offering a potential route back to Turin for their former player.

With Mourinho known for not staying at a club for longer than three seasons, fans seem to be wary ahead of his third campaign at United.

Yet it is said that renowned agent Raiola has had discussions with Barca to discuss a move - one which Pogba himself would be open to, according to the Mail.

Conor McGregor will fight against Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov for UFC lightweight title
McGregor was arrested, but was sentenced last month to perform five days of community service, avoiding jail time in a plea deal. McGregor was an event first and foremost, and whether or not a competitive fight ever came out of it was never really the point.

Pogba has yet to return to pre-season after his World Cup exploits in Russian Federation, despite the fact United kick off their Premier League season on Friday.

Pogba endured a turbulent time at Old Trafford last season.

Instead of praising Pogba's performances, Mourinho urged him to "understand" why he had done so well in Russian Federation and appeared to suggest the player lacked the same focus for his club.

"There are a lot of names that always get circulated around in the rumour mill - all of them are good players and we respect them themselves but we also respect the clubs they are now at".

The France worldwide has been linked to Spanish giants Barcelona following his impressive performances in winning the World Cup with his country.

Manafort trial: Star witness testifies against ex-Trump aide
Manafort attorney Kevin Downing says that Rick Gates will testify at the conclusion of the testimony of Manafort's tax preparer. At the end of the day, the prosecutors said they expected to have three more hours worth of direct questioning for Gates.

"Why? Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football".

Raiola's ask for bigger wages was followed by claims from Pep Guardiola that Manchester City had been offered the chance by the 50-year-old to sign Pogba in the January transfer window.

Reports that Raiola had spoken with Barcelona and was set for talks with United over Pogba's future began to circulate in Spain and Italy on Monday.

The deal could hinge on Marcos Rojo leaving United and he has yet to be convinced that a move to Everton is the best option for him.
