Paul Pogba says don't blame him for Man Utd transfer speculation

But he was made captain for the opening two games of the Premier League season in the absence of Antonio Valencia and has scored twice so far.

The France World Cup victor, who moved to Old Trafford in 2016 in an 89.3 million-pound ($115.4 million) deal from Juventus, has endured a strained relationship with United manager Jose Mourinho.

He said: "I'm trying to work on myself physically".

Reports on Wednesday claimed the pair had called a truce, but Pogba subsequently gave an interview with Sky Sports Germany during which he hinted his situation could change come the January transfer window, amid continued interest from Barcelona and Juventus.

"I still have a contract, I am playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months".

Speaking about his relationship with coach Jose Mourinho, he said: "We have a pure coach-player relationship". I got back late, so I'm trying to perform as well as possible. That's how it is.

"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".

France next play Netherlands in the Nations Cup on September 9, before Pogba returns to Manchester United, who next play Watford in the Premier League on September 15.

But he has failed to live up to the price tag and Mourinho's frustration with him has been obvious.

Pogba was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona over the summer, with the France worldwide reportedly at odds with Jose Mourinho.

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov has said that manager Jose Mourinho, or midfielder, Paul Pogba, should not leave the club.
