United have denied that happened and the same outlet said that Mino Raiola, the player's agent, had even struck a deal with Barcelona - the kind of interest that the club have vowed to reject.
Jose Mourinho received an instant reward for handing Paul Pogba the captain's armband when the World Cup-winning midfielder paved the way for Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester City as the Premier League season opened on Friday.
Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw inspired Manchester United to an opening-day victory as they ignored background noise and their deadline-day frustration to overcome Leicester.
"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me".
Paul Pogba appears uneasy at Manchester United.
"There are things and there are things that I cannot say otherwise I will get fined", declared Pogba, as he was asked about his future at United and suggested he can only perform at his best when he feels wanted by his manager. Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was incredible, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield.
Despite being able to broker a number of lucrative sponsorship deals around the globe, Woodward has failed to deliver players for all of the managers in his tenure, with current boss Jose Mourinho being the latest Man Utd boss to vent his frustrations at not receiving his transfer targets. I want to play for England and I want to be involved again.
Mourinho said "football is changing, and managers should be called head coaches" after beating Leicester, who he flagged as a side that should not be underestimated as they "invest more than us".
"I won't be full from a World Cup", Pogba told Sky Sports. With Leicester still relentlessly chasing the equaliser, United looked to step up their attacking play to double their lead.With the 60th minute passing and Manchester United still only one ahead, Leicester brought Ghezzal on for his debut in the place of Amartey as well as replacing Maddison with Vardy.
"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us", the 55-year-old said.
'But he just lifts it over Kasper Schmeichel and when they lift it to the upper part of the net, keepers never get them'. Leicester were strong in a few periods of the game, but we coped with that as a team which is also an important thing.
The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most.
