Boateng called Mourinho to turn down Man United

The 23-year-old arrived as one of best central midfielders in Europe, signing a lucrative five-year deal.

Jose Mourinho was bent on signing two centre backs, a part of his squad he felt he needed to improve if his side were to challenge for the title. The 23-year-old has so far been linked with moves to Juventus, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Manchester City as he seems quite happy to allow his contract to run down to within six months of expiring before he makes his decision in January.

Pogba certainly doesn't help himself.

"My future is now 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", Pogba said.

"These are good things; yeah we strive for more, but these are good things, these are positive things".

But we do know what former United right-back Gary Neville thinks of Pogba, though.

'As long as you do not see me with the Barcelona jersey, it's because I'm in Manchester.

Boateng went onto reveal that he personally spoke to Mourinho regarding Manchester United's interest.

'My future is now 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'. While he may be seen as an upgrade to what is now available to Mourinho, it's hard to see United making such a move without some players being moved on to allow it to happen.

"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice it would be: 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional'. You don't need to do that".

That's the least you'd expect if you're getting paid £290,000-per-week...
