After Jose Mourinho handed Paul Pogba the captain's armband for Manchester United's opening Premier League fixture against Leicester, it looked as though the pair had finally put their troubles behind them.

Yet Pogba has now stirred the rumour mill over his future once again, with comments to the media that suggest his discontent under Mourinho's leadership will not evaporate any time soon. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined". "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said.

"What do you mean being the real Pogba?" he asked. I am the same, it's the same Paul Pogba. "It's a different team, obviously".

FC Barcelona haven't ruled out adding to their first team squad this summer.

'If you're not happy doing what you're doing, there's no point doing it, right?

The Frenchman was made captain for the Leicester match, with former captain Michael Carrick and coach Kieran McKenna the ones to tell Pogba of the decision. "For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought". "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me". Just try to help the team as much as possible, like they helped me too.

"I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in", Mourinho said.

The Catalan club will similarly keep in touch with agent Mino Raiola and monitor Pogba's happiness at Old Trafford, as well as his relationship with Mourinho, and are ready to launch another offensive when the window reopens.

Despite the Premier League transfer window closing last week, players can still be sold to European clubs and both Juventus and Barcelona are believed to be keen on Pogba.
