Manchester United to appoint Director of Football to solve transfer woes

13 August 2018

Shearer said he will "not be surprised" if Pogba, who has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, left Old Trafford this summer.

United will fight hard to keep their star midfielder and £89m record signing. "That is the way I think football is going", said Mourinho in an interview with Sky Sports.

"Pogba was one of the stars of the show as France lifted the World Cup last month and he should have been strolling back to United in joyous mood after a career defining tournament that confirmed his status as one of the best players the world".

Wes Brown expects Paul Pogba to "get his head down and play" despite suggestions the Frenchman is unhappy at Manchester United.

Manchester United beat Leicester City 2-1 Friday night in spite of all the drama that now surrounds the club.

Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.

However, the former Juventus midfielder hinted at an ongoing impasse with Mourinho by stressing: "If you're not happy, you can not give your best", Pogba said.

"His passing was good, he was heading balls out of the box and his commitment to the cause could not be questioned, so I hope he finds a way to fix any damage there might be in his relationship with Mourinho and focuses on giving his all to United".

Following the Leicester win, Mourinho again praised Pogba, calling him "a monster" for completing 80 minuted despite a short preseason, but there still appears to be resentment on Pogba's end as to how he is being treated by his manager.

Manchester United are hoping to solve this summer's transfer woes by appointing a director of Football according to reports.

"And of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup - because it's something that, in a competition like that, every player trains a lot - and he was very confident".

And ex-Liverpool ace Collymore says Mourinho isn't the right man to take United forward, claiming it's time for the Special One to leave. No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do.
