Jose Mourinho Eyeying $107 Million Deal For Juventus Superstar – Reports

Jerome Boateng Personally Called Jose Mourinho In The Summer, Has Revealed What He Said

"I had enquiries from Paris-Saint Germain and Manchester United, and I considered them", Boateng told Bild.

"As a fan, honestly, part of me is that no one is bigger than the club and I am not interested in people who are looking left and right". "We are together two months or so". "Not because I wanted to leave Bayern Munich by all means". Never. He never told me he wants to leave.

"So I can only comment on what is real for me, not in what I read, not in what I listen to". I have a direct relationship with the players - not just Paul.

And it seems many United fans already want him to leave the club. "That's my conclusion, no?"

Pogba's Old Trafford career has been the subject of intense speculation since the summer with reported interest from Barcelona and his former club Juventus.

When Manchester United splashed a world-record £89 million to re-sign Paul Pogba in 2016, it was supposed to be a transfer for the next decade.

"For example, this week I read a few things Gareth Southgate supposedly said. That's all I can say".

Neville the pundit would say: he's a talented player but I want to see more consistency and leadership.

"There are moments when I laugh, I joke around, I love dancing", he added.

"You have to ask him".

"If you live it from within, as happened to me in the first 4 years, you are not amazed at the path and the triumphs".

Pogba is set to start against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening as United look to dent the host's ideal start to the season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed he is "in the dark" over Paul Pogba's outspoken agent Mino Raiola's intentions for the French World Cup victor.

The Manchester United target did reveal that he spoke personally with Jose Mourinho who wanted to strengthen his defense after also being linked with a move for Leicester City's central defender Harry Maguire and Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld. "Don't be someone who is seen as a mercenary or a mutineer".
