Moyes: Man Utd can top Premier League by December

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho

The midfielder, 25, won the World Cup with France in the summer and scored in United's 2-1 win over Leicester in Friday's Premier League opener.

A 2-1 victory on Friday night, built around a stirring performance and an early penalty from World Cup victor Pogba as well as Luke Shaw's first career goal, might have been cause for good cheer but Mourinho chose the occasion to revisit his concerns over the club's recent business.

Pogba, who was given the captaincy by Mourinho on Friday, summed up what it meant for him to be happy and comfortable.

Paul Pogba said he needs to be happy to perform at his best for Manchester United, adding that he would be fined if he spoke his true feelings. That's all I say.

The Guardian report that the Red Devils plan to revamp their recruitment policy and while Jose Mourinho - as well as his future successors - and current executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will continue to be involved heavily in identifying and signing targets, the new director of football will be tasked with streamlining the process.

"If you're not happy, you can not give your best", Pogba said.

"There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined", he added.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique confirms global retirement
Even before the World Cup, Pique had hinted that Russian Federation 2018 would be his last major tournament as part of La Roja . The 31-year-old made the last of his 102 global appearances in Spain's World Cup last-16 loss to Russian Federation .

Pogba was overlooked as the permanent successor to Michael Carrick as club captain, with Valencia instead getting the nod from manager Jose Mourinho - a decision that reportedly upset the midfielder.

"Having the armband, it's not like "oh, I will show that I am a real captain and have to do extra work".

"I always love the club", he continued. "I love the club".

"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me".

"I wonder if Jose's words the other day, "Let's wait until the end of November", I would be very surprised if United weren't top of the league come the end of November".

"I think that the fixtures that have come out for them and the way it's worked, I think will give them every opportunity to be there". United have denied that happened, while it was also reported that Mino Raiola, the player's agent, had even struck a deal with Barcelona - a scenario the club have vowed to reject.
