#5 Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba’s future at the Old Trafford is one of the most talked-of events in football right now. His reported erratic relationship with Mourinho, coupled with Barcelona’s courtship of him is making it very difficult to comprehend as to what exactly is happening.
The Frenchman himself is seemingly contradicting himself when speaking about his future. The former Juventus midfielder was quoted yesterday as claiming that no-one can know for sure as to what the future holds with regards to him and Manchester United.
"My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I'm playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months," he told Sky Sports Germany.
However, there is now a completely different set of quotes coming out from the World Cup-winning midfielder’s mouth. Even though he was quoted as being unsure about his future yesterday, he now claims that he is not the one doing the talking.
He also added that his only focus now is to improve himself physically after joining the United camp late after a grueling World Cup and dismisses all the rest as just whispers in the air.
“It's not me who's talking,” Pogba said.
“I'm trying to work on myself physically. I got back late from the World Cup, so I'm trying to perform as well as possible.
“I'm just trying to do my job and for the rest, there'll always be talk.”
In the recently-concluded window, the Red Devils academy graduate was linked with Barcelona on a regular basis. However, the deal never went through but there are talks about him forcing a move in January to either one of Juventus and Barcelona.
