Pogba still happy at Man Utd, insists Mourinho

Pogba still happy at Man Utd, insists Mourinho

According to the Argentinian manager, the whole transfer saga with Manchester United has been a load of smoke and mirrors, as the Belgian centre back is firmly staying with the Lilywhites.

United would have paid up to £100m (€111m) for Varane but the Frenchman was never available and as the options were put to them over the course of a transfer window there were too many good reasons to ignore them.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez are set for a "defining season" at the club.

"I don't know what Ed Woodward and Mourinho have been doing, but I am sorry, this is not the Man United I know of recent years, sitting on their hands, watching other player and other clubs spend money".

Courtois' replacement at Stamford Bridge is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when Chelsea paid his €80m release clause at Athletic Bilbao, but reports United are ready to make Leicester City's Harry Maguire the world's costliest defender now seem unlikely to come to fruition.

"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazil global Fred, FC Porto teenager Diogo Dalot and experienced Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant this summer. I think it will be seen now in the games when we play with Paul, with Fred with Lukaku and with all the rest who are playing.

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

United host Leicester at Old Trafford this evening in the Premier League curtain-raiser. Even the statistics, as great as they are, do not equate to the gulf.

The Portuguese went some way to countering suggestions he is unhappy with his squad at his pre-match press conference. "I am happy with all the players at the moment". "I like to work with my players".

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".
