Pogba ‘not sure’ over United future, discusses PSG links

Paul Pogba has refused to rule out the possibility of leaving Manchester United this summer.

The club’s record signing turned in another below-par performance during United’s FA Cup final defeat on Saturday which brought the curtain down on a frustrating season for the Frenchman.

Having been dropped to the bench by Jose Mourinho, Pogba admits he has had some ‘”mental” issues with the manager while refusing to allay fears among some supporters that he could quit the club two years after joining from Juventus for £89million.

When asked whether he would stay at United for next season, Pogba told Canal+: “You’re never sure of anything. Contractually, it’s on, yes.

“There were times when I wasn’t playing. I was on the bench. Much has been spoken about.

“People thought it was wrong but a coach and player don’t have to be best friends. One is not forced to go to the restaurant together. I had some problems – it’s mental.

“He put me on the bench, I answered on the pitch, I give my maximum every time. It made me grow in leadership.

“I had the armband with Mourinho, it was the first time in a club. It’s important to me, it makes me grow up to be as a leader in the France team.”

Should Pogba and United part ways, a move to France has been discussed as a possibility for the Paris-born midfielder.

The 25-year-old, however, played down any links with PSG.

“Walking on the Parc des Princes? With a club, no for sure,” he said.

“Honestly, it doesn’t appeal to me.

“I grew up here, my father supported Marseille and so did my mum. Paris wasn’t really in my daily life.”
