And when questioned about his future at Old Trafford shortled during United’s pre-season tour, the 26-year-old brushed off the question.
“Who needs to talk? There’s no need,” he declared.
Pogba’s super agent Mino Raiola recently spoke out about his client’s future on talkSPORT radio, saying: “The player has done nothing wrong. He’s been professional and respectful.
“The club has known his feelings for a long time. Hopefully there will be soon be a satisfying solution for all parties.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to tie Pogba down at the club, and suggested he could be handed the captain’s armband next season.
“Yep [Pogba could be United’s next captain]. We’ve got quite a few possibilities there and when the season starts we’ll announce it,” said the United boss.
When asked why he sees the World Cup winner as potential captain material, he added: “Well, I don’t think that needs explaining. We’ll discuss that later on.”
