United have taken a stern stance in talks, insisting the World Cup victor is not for sale.

In case you didn't know.


Like Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, Pogba was one of United's stars who shone at the World Cup away from Mourinho, and question marks remain about how the Portuguese can get the best out of his star midfielder.

The French midfielder's future continues to be the source of much speculation following reports of a bust-up with Jose Mourinho.

The man responsible for handling superstar Paul Pogba's contract negotiations reportedly wants him to join Spanish giants FC Barcelona in this transfer window. However, United stood firm and told Barcelona they would not listen to any offers for their record signing. We are respectful with players who are in other clubs.

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. Raiola is known to have approached United about a raise for Pogba after Sanchez moved to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is in England trying to broker a move out this week.

In theory, Barcelona would have until the end of the month to sign Pogba before the transfer window closes in Spain. These tactics are employed by the agent as publicity stunts and rarely amount to anything.

Jose Mourinho wants Pogba back at Old Trafford and is hopeful he can replicate his form on the worldwide stage for United.
