The French World Cup victor has an uneasy relationship with Old Trafford boss Mourinho triggering talks of a summer exit with Pogba's agent Mina Raiola desperate to move him to Barcelona. "That's the main thing, get the players in".

Charlie Nicholas has ruled out Jose Mourinho lasting the season at Manchester United.

Pogba is unhappy about Mourinho's suggestion that his World Cup success was due to being "isolated" and better able to concentrate on his football.

Claude Puel accused Leicester of lacking a clinical edge as they slipped to an opening-day Premier League defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"I mean, Manchester United, we have to show on the pitch, we have to play well, we have to be focused and we need people to trust us". United will rely on Pogba to win the ball in midfield and create scoring chances for Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

We have big and multi-functional coaching staffs, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager. "Everybody was on the same page".

Mr Musk said in a tweet on Tuesday that he had secured financing for the deal, but he did not publicly provide further details. Musk's personal stake in Tesla is nearly 20 percent, meaning he would need roughly $70 billion to take it out of the market.

"In the periods Leicester were stronger we played as a team and coped well".

"We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]. We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games".

"[United] is a different team, obviously".

"I still enjoying playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team".

Paul Pogba's third-minute penalty - awarded after Daniel Amartey's handball with just 75 seconds on the clock - and Luke Shaw's second sealed Leicester's fate on Friday night, with Jamie Vardy's late goal mere consolation for the Foxes.

It was well-timed after a week of stories about the strained relationship between player and manager, but the former Juventus man insists the armband didn't change anything once he got onto the pitch. I know it's long, it can disturb the goalkeeper, but that's how I take it.
