Mourinho coy on Pogba


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has refused to be drawn on speculation that the club are close to agreeing a deal for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward did not join the squad for the pre-season tour of China amid reports that United have tabled a bid for the France international.

Juventus want in excess of £100million for the player, who left Old Trafford four years ago, and there is growing speculation that the deal could be concluded in the near future.

Mourinho, however, was remaining coy when asked about the deal.

"I don't confirm and I don't deny. I cannot tell you," Mourinho told reporters in China.

United have already completed the signings of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer and Mourinho is confident he will sign one more player before the transfer deadline at the end of August.

"I don't think it is correct to speak about players of other clubs. My directors did a fantastic work to do 75 per cent of the job I ask them to do. I gave them a few options. We have just 25 per cent to do until 31 August," he stated.

We are in great conditions to have a great market. We are calm. We have three faces to fill the profile. I am confident Mr Woodward will get the player we need to get a good balance.
