There are problems, I was surprised to see him play [against Leicester].

Pogba was asked by reporters Friday night if he is "happy and comfortable" at the club, but his answer neither confirmed nor denied the tension that is being widely reported by the media right now.

United went on to win 2-1, with Pogba, fresh from a World Cup-winning campaign that he was lauded for, scoring the opener. "That is the way I think football is going", said Mourinho in an interview with Sky Sports.

Pogba seems to have found his ideal midfield partner at Old Trafford, something Mourinho has been searching for ever since he arrived in Manchester.

It's also claimed that Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is keen to get the France global out of Old Trafford.

"There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

"I can not see United selling one of their greatest assets right now, the relationship between Mourinho and the player appears to be strained and it really doesn't need to be", he added.

A disastrous transfer window, that saw the Red Devils sign just three players including third choice goalkeeper Lee Grant, has forced a change at the upper echelons of Old Trafford.
