There will always be talk about my future – Pogba
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba believes “there will always be talk” amid continuing speculation about his future at Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old fell out of favour last season and was linked with a return to Juventus, or Barcelona in the summer.
On Wednesday, Pogba fuelled speculation when he said: “Who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
However, on Thursday, he said: “It’s not me who’s talking. I’m trying to do my job and work on myself physically.”
The World Cup winner was speaking either side of France’s 0-0 draw with Germany in their opening Uefa Nations League match.
When asked if he was “fed up” with all the speculation, he replied: “I got back late [from the World Cup], so I’m trying to perform as well as possible.”
Asked about his relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho, Pogba replied: “We have a pure coach-player relationship, that’s right.
“One thing I can assure you, I will always give 100% – no matter which coach I always give everything for United. I cannot say more.”
The former United youth player returned to the club on a five-year deal after four years with Juventus, signing for a then world record £89m fee in 2016.
Last season, he was dropped to the bench by Mourinho for both legs of United’s Champions League last-16 defeat by Sevilla.
But he was made captain for the opening two games of the Premier League season in the absence of Antonio Valencia and has scored twice so far.
