Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane sets sights on Manchester United job

Though that amounted to nothing, and Barcelona officials have been quick to curry favour with United to not damage the lines of communication, doubts remain about Pogba's long term future at Old Trafford, particularly under the guidance of notorious agent Mino Raiola.

He said: "I'm here for two years and a couple of months and the only player that was fined was Anthony Martial, so is not easy to be fined here, so you have to ask him".

"He's working well, playing well, he does it for the fans, he does for the team and that's what I want".

At a press conference, the 55-year-old told reporters: "I want him to play well, I want him to play for that team, the fans, and that is what it is".

As reported by the Express, Fred, who arrived as one of three new signings made by Jose Mourinho, was also strongly linked with a move to the other half of Manchester to play under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad.

Asked if he has a problem with CEO Ed Woodward, Mourinho said: "That's football".

Paul Pogba's man-of-the-match display against Leicester came on short rest and he is likely to have more energy in his legs for the trip to Brighton.

"He's working extremely well here but I have to say in his defence, write what you want about him, write what you want about me but please don't say lies". "I develop the scouting team and its structure".

'He never had a fight with me.

Mourinho also laughed off suggestions that Pogba would have faced a fine for talking his mind - pointing out that the only United player to have been fined on his watch was Anthony Martial, fined £180,000 for failing to return to their pre-season U.S. tour following the birth of his child. As well as the European triumphs, Zidane won one league title and two Club World Cups during his time in the Spanish capital.

It seems somewhat unusual to suggest a player that you've constantly nagged at for showing a lack of application should have been made club captain the minute he entered the training ground, but that's our Paul.

"If Jose does try to take on too many players at United, I would not be surprised if the same thing happens again".
