Paul Pogba has suggested he cannot predict what will happen in the upcoming months as rumours of his departure from Manchester United continue to gain traction.

Pogba’s played a starring role in France’s World Cup winning campaign this summer and detractors are suggesting he is not reproducing that level for Manchester United

Pogba has moved to silence those who question his commitment, but left the door open for any potential move away from Old Trafford in January.

He told Sky Sports Germany: “There was a lot of talk, but it was just like that, I’m under contract in Manchester.

“My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I’m playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.

“One thing I can assure you: I will always give 100 per cent, no matter which coach I always give everything for United – I cannot say more.”

Pogba rejoined United from Juventus in summer 2016 for a then-world record fee of £89m, but his form has been fleeting whilst he has excelled at national level.

The obvious connection to draw was it had something to do with the management of his mercurial manager Jose Mourinho.

Pogba’s suggestion that he gives everything, no matter what coach, could be seen as a slight towards the Portuguese.

Pogba was linked to a summer move to Barcelona after his World Cup performances which were only strengthened when the documentary Les Bleus: 2018 showed Pogba taking a leading role in the dressing room in the latter stages of the tournament in Russia.

Despite scoring the first goal of the Premier League season, a penalty against Leicester, Pogba has looked like the Pogba of last season.

Regardless of why this is the case, United fans will be worrying that Barcelona’s gravitational pull over the world’s best players could see their star man leaving midway through the season.
