Mourinho insists Pogba is 'happy and proud' at Man Utd despite Barcelona rumours

The World Cup winner returned to training this week to reports that his agent is trying to orchestrate a move, but the manager insists all is well

Jose Mourinho insisted Paul Pogba is happy to be back at Manchester United following France's World Cup victory, despite reports linking the midfielder with a move to Barcelona and Juventus.

Pogba played a crucial role for Didier Deschamps' triumphant side in Russia, and the 25-year-old star returned to United training on Monday ahead of Friday's opening Premier League fixture of the season against Leicester City.

La Liga champions Barca are reportedly interested in taking Pogba to Camp Nou, with the transfer window still open until August 31 for most of Europe's major leagues, while former club Juve have also been linked.

However, United had no intention of letting the midfielder go, a point manager Mourinho affirmed, though he added that the Frenchman may not feature against Leicester at Old Trafford.

"My perception, he arrived Monday, happy, proud, a desire to work," Mourinho told a press conference.

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. He's one of the players that I have to speak to, to see how physically and mentally he feels.

"But it's the same conversation as with [Ashley] Young, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Jesse] Lingard, it's the same.
