The Brazilian had a promising debut against Leicester on Friday

Mourinho surprised many fans and pundits by starting the French World Cup victor when many felt he would be left out having not completed a proper pre-season.

But if Barca offer them the chance to make a profit on the player they signed for a then world-record fee of $115 million two summers ago, and someone who has never really hit top form consistently, should United snap their hands off?

"I still enjoying playing football but like I said, when you are comfortable or confident and are good in the head, it's going to be easier".

"There was no question that United would let Pogba go to Barcelona, I'm not sure they could afford him anyway".

"It's my style of taking penalties, I've always done".

There's no doubt Pogba has always been surrounded by great leaders and there were plenty of fans calling for him to be named the club's captain.

"I am someone who is not (in) a role that I give to myself". I know it's long, it can disturb the goalkeeper, but that's how I take it.

Pogba disclosed "everybody was on the same page" in his national team dressing room, from manager Didier Deschamps to the kitman, physio and players. "For sure they are going to have a very good season".

Pogba also emphaisezed on the importance of aiming for success with the club and the responsibility that came with wearing the armband.

Former United defender and Sky Sports pundit Neville said: "The club have spent £700m since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, it's a fortune".

Manchester United are hoping to solve this summer's transfer woes by appointing a director of Football according to reports. "For me, it was a dream come true". "We play against a team that invest more than us".

While United have denied that occurred, Wallace feels there will be only be one victor if the club's hierarchy have to make a decision between keeping the player or their manager.

Pogba scored and dominated as United's captain in their 2-1 home win against Leicester City to kick off their season.
