Jose Mourinho admits he is unable to give a guarantee that club-record signing Paul Pogba will be at Manchester United next season.
Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, is understood to have offered the midfielder — who cost £89million from Juventus two years ago — to a host of Europe’s top clubs, with Paris Saint-Germain said to be interested in a move for the France international.
Asked about the 25-year-old’s future on Wednesday, Mourinho said: “I think he’s going to be here next season. That’s my feeling.
“I can give the guarantee that I don’t want him to leave, that the club doesn’t want to sell him, and I can give you the guarantee that we don’t have any approach from him, his agent or from any club.
“In this moment for me, he’s staying, yes.”
After starting only four of 11 matches in all competitions over two months from late January, Pogba has been a regular in the side over recent weeks.
“I do not have any problem with Mourinho, I do not think he has either,” he said during one of several recent appearances on French television
“He is the coach, he’s going to make choices and I as a player, I accept them. That is all.
“For now I’m at Manchester United, I really only think about the present. Transfers are not in my head. You know, if I listened to everyone, I would be everywhere.”
