"I’m completely in the dark" - Jose Mourinho unsure of Paul Pogba’s future

"I can only comment on what is real for me, and not on what I read or what I listen to", said the Portuguese.

However, De Gea brushed off the criticism as he prepared to face Young Boys Bern in United's opening Champions League group game in Switzerland on Wednesday night.

"I'm really happy to be at this club".

It's a long time for Manchester United not to win this cup so we are ready to do it.

De Dea, who has been the club's Player of the Year in four of the last five seasons, is widely regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world and wants a contract that reflects that.

The 27-year-old insists he has not been distracted, though, and said: "Normally, I never listen to the people who speak about me.

I'm focused on my job and trying to help my team, trying to improve every session and trying to be as good as I can". "If I watch Mr Raiola on the screen saying the players wants to leave, and that he is organising a way for him to try to leave or so on, then I will believe".

"Getting two wins on the bounce and coming into a month where there are so many games, I think we are building momentum at the right time".


They were rewarded with a foothold back into the game through Gray's goal, which infused the team with renewed belief and United suddenly looked shaky as Watford poured forward in search of an equaliser.

"Well, we are not used to playing on artificial grass so it's going to be a bit different", he said.

In February, Sevilla dished out a humbling 2-1 loss that saw Jose Mourinho's men bow out of the Champions League in the last-16.

Chris Smalling believes two hard-fought away victories is the ideal way for Manchester United to prepare for the return of the Champions League.


"They can hold the ball, they can make runs, they are good in the air, they are physical, clever, so I think these three guys [Smalling, Lindelof and Fellaini] were very important for us today again, and when a central defender can score a goal, even better".

He added: "With [the club captain] Antonio Valencia we need to protect his clinical situation, apart from that we go with everything we have and have to try to win".
