United legend weighs in on Paul Pogba transfer rumours

Dimitar Berbatov believes Paul Pogba will remain at Manchester United despite rumours he could move to Barcelona before the end of the month.

Pogba was dropped at back end of last season by Jose Mourinho, leading to rumours he could leave the club this summer.

And the Frenchman has since cast doubt over his United future following last week’s win over Leicester City, stating that “if you’re not happy, you cannot give your best” and suggesting he cannot speak his true feelings over his situation for fear of being fined.

Barcelona had a bid rejected for Pogba last month, however it is rumoured the Catalans will again try to land him before the end of month.

But Berbatov believes Pogba will remain at Old Trafford, and that the situation between the France international and Jose Mourinho can be sorted out.

Berbatov told Betfair: “I was very happy with the display of Paul Pogba against Leicester, it was a real captain’s performance.

“He was everywhere on the pitch, passed it well, took the penalty with confidence – considering it was the first game, it was very encouraging.

“There has been chat in the media about him being unhappy.

“But I think the newspapers and social media are always focused on that side of things, trying to find problems that aren’t necessarily there, constantly exaggerating.

“It’s on the pitch that matters. These stories are not good for anybody, but Jose and Pogba will figure it out.”
