Barcelona director finally addresses Paul Pogba rumours

Pogbs converted penalty for United

It was a memorable night for World Cup victor, Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman has done nothing to try and extinguish speculation that he's unsettled and unhappy at Old Trafford.

The World Cup-winner was handed the captain's armband by Jose Mourinho ahead of the Red Devils' season opener against Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.

Barcelona director Ariedo Braida has admitted that his club are unlikely to move for Manchester United star Paul Pogba.

The relationship between Pogba and Mourinho came under scrutiny on numerous occasions last season, while the France international's performances at this summer's World Cup led to claims that Mourinho could not get the best out of the midfielder.

"I never speak about [specific] names, you know it", Bartomeu told Spanish TV station TVE after Barca's 2-1 win over Sevilla in the Spanish Supercup on Sunday night, when asked about Pogba.

"The fans weren't happy, the stadium was starting to have empty seats and then they think, "right, we need to win" and they bring in Jose Mourinho, who likes powerful, robust, strong players".

The midfielder was arguably United's best player throughout, bossing the midfield while being the main creative outlet for the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford.

"Ajax, Manchester United and Barcelona are the three bastions of European football in terms of style of play", said Neville.

"I did watch it, it was a bit boring at times, but that is what you become accustomed to with Mourinho".

Though he has suggested all is not well at United, Pogba insisted that he will continue to give his all for the club.

Mundo Deportivo has claimed that Barca will attempt to buy the France worldwide before the transfer window closes in Spain, but Braida suggested those reports are untrue. There are problems, I was surprised to see him play [against Leicester].
