Pogba still happy at Man Utd, insists Mourinho

Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Bayern Munich's Jérôme Boateng are also claimed to be on Mourinho's radar, despite contrasting World Cup performances for Colombia and Germany respectively. He said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

While United and other Premier League teams in England will not be able to bring in players after August 9, they can still sell players to other teams around Europe until August 31.

The Red Devils haven't won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson got his hands on his 13th an final top-flight crown. Can Paul Pogba get the best out of Paul Pogba?
