Boateng reveals reason for turning down Mourinho and Man Utd

Boateng reveals reason for turning down Mourinho and Man Utd

"I called Jose Mourinho".

Although United have insisted the midfielder is not for sale following reports he may be open to another move away from Old Trafford, the club may decide to cash in on him in the year ahead if he continues to be unhappy in Manchester.

Pogba returned to Old Trafford in a then-world record move from Juve in 2016, but his second spell hasn't run smoothly and there are suggestions that his agent, Mino Raiola, has promised his client that he will move next summer.

He said: "I think when we give him time, and we keep our patience with the players and with him, I think we can actually focus on what's happening".

He understands Manchester United's public posturing about not selling him, but believes the club are only trying to protect the investment they have made in the midfielder.

And while Pogba is a fan favourite as well as a marketing dream, Neville has called for the 25-year-old to act more professionally or find a new club as the Red Devils would cope without him. While he may be seen as an upgrade to what is now available to Mourinho, it's hard to see United making such a move without some players being moved on to allow it to happen. I feel well at Bayern.

'So Paul, if you want to go play somewhere else, let's make that work for you because Manchester United will be fine, don't worry about that'.

"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice it would be, 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional".

'My future is now 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'. Don't be someone who is seen as a mercenary or a mutineer.

Doucoure is likely to face off with Pogba in the Premier League clash, with the battle in the centre of the park always a pivotal one. You don't need to do that'.
