The France midfielder has been heavily linked with a world-record transfer to United, which sold him to Juventus for less than 1 million pounds in 2012, and the move is reported to be close.

Asked if he was confident it would be Pogba, Mourinho said: "I don't like to speak about other clubs, or about players from other clubs". What matters to me is only what happens in my house, not the house of my neighbour, .

In fact, the British media reported earlier this week that Pogba could be announced as a Manchester United player next month, which would be enough time for him to be ready for the Red Devils' opening English Premier League match against Bournemouth on August 14. It stays like this.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho admits that he has not been entirely satisfied with his side's pre-season campaign.

"A young defender that needs time to be a top one but who has top potential".

"I think you are getting one of the best midfield players in the world. I am happy with the effort of the club".

Mourinho said he meant to use Sunday's game between his FA Cup holders and Premier League champions Leicester - the traditional curtain-raiser to the English season - to give a run out to as many members of his squad as possible.

The Red Devils take on the Premier League champions this weekend at Wembley in the traditional season curtain-raiser at Wembley but unsurprisingly much of the talk has centred on the French midfielder. That is a competition that changes a lot at the start of the season, with 15 matches and playing on the Thursday.

The prodigious playmaker left United in 2012 after struggling to break into the club's first team and has been massively successful for Juventus over four years - winning four Serie A titles.

"We brought Micki [Mkhitaryan] here, we know the quality he has".

"I made the decision to be with 23 players plus three goalkeepers, and I had to make my decisions".

"He's at a big club, in a league where he'll nearly certainly be a champion". Does it make sense in the way the player can give you that investment back? But the way we work we try to bring them on as fast as we can.
