Barcelona Transfer News Man Utd star Paul Pogba is intent on joining Barcelona

Despite 'The Sun' revealing that Pogba and Jose Mourinho had a conversation, which didn't go well, they've now stated that the French midfielder "won't leave Old Trafford".

Yet Mourinho struck the opposite tone.

"The truth is that we've been together for two years and I can't ask anymore from him".

"Manchester United is a big club and it would nice to play against them, but I am more looking forward to playing a home game in front of our fans".

The Frenchman missed out the Red Devils tour of the USA due to his involvement in the summer World Cup exploits but returned early for training and was a surprise starter against the Foxes.

"He is very polite, very educated, never had a fight with me". We never had a warm or hard, I don't know how you like to say, exchange of words.

"I don't care. I don't care".

Barcelona tested the waters earlier in the month but their offer of £50m plus two players was rejected out of hand.

Also, after the team left the stadium, Pogba posted this message on Instagram: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on". "I want him to work the way he's doing, for me that's the only thing that matters".

Martial's fine relates to the forward's inactivity for over a week following the birth of his child in July.

However, Mourinho set the record straight in his weekly press conference and confirmed there were no issues between the pair and he would retain the captaincy for now. "I don't know", he said. "If he doesn't that's football".

"He plays against Leicester, he's outstanding, man of the match for me".

Antonio Valencia has spent nine seasons at Old Trafford and was named as the first choice captain for the majority of last season. Last season we thought he should before the game against Basel [in November].

But Mourinho is pleased Darmian is set to be a United player when the 7pm (UK time) deadline passes in Italy on Friday.

"Everybody has a bad day and has little ups and downs in the performance level". "He's loved by the group for his human nature".
