Wright believes if Pogba was to perform to the level he did for France at the summers' World Cup, United would get the results to ultimately end the feud.

Pogba featured in a friendly clash against Germany during the worldwide break and was coy about his future.

Manchester United have put contract talks with Paul Pogba on ice following increasing speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, according to reports.

However, on Thursday, he said: "It's not me who's talking".

"I think Paul Pogba is the person who could just really blast this out of the water by playing well".

Although United remain confident of convincing the Frenchman that his future remains at Old Trafford, the club are unwilling to continue talks while he remains unsettled with the Catalan giants' public pursuit.

United have endured a mixed start to the 2018-19 Premier League campaign, with six points from their first four games and defeats against Tottenham and Brighton. One thing I can promise: I will always give it 100 percent, regardless for which coach.

Pogba had a bust-up with Mourinho in February and was named on the bench for a number of crunch fixtures last term. Now he is set to return to his club duties for Manchester United. Clubs including FC Barcelona were linked and it seemed like he would leave the Manchester-based club this summer. They know where I am.

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona said that the Red Devils are showing "no fun and no creativity" under Jose Mourinho, adding that he prefers Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

"But I have not read that he says he wants to sign for the club".

'If United do flop this season, there is every chance Mourinho, not Pogba, will be the one out of the door, with a thank you and goodbye from the power brokers'.
