Amid rumors that he will sign for Barcelona this summer or in an upcoming transfer window (remember, the transfer window in Spain is open for a few more weeks), Manchester United star Paul Pogba has given a cryptic response regarding his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
It certainly seems like Pogba is making a point by mentioning the fans and teammates but not Mourinho, as the fire is fuelled further about a potential exit. "That's the main thing, get the players in".
And as United's season kicked off with victory over Leicester Pogba's mighty display showcased his special talent - and brought some straight talking from the intelligent £89 million midfield power-house. That's all I'll say'.
A 2-1 victory on Friday night, built around a stirring performance and an early penalty from World Cup victor Pogba as well as Luke Shaw's first career goal, might have been cause for good cheer but Mourinho chose the occasion to revisit his concerns over the club's recent business.
"It's a different team, obviously".
Pogba was not the only United player to impress me.

Ukraine midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko before the transfer deadline rejected the offer Wolverhampton and chose to stay in Manchester city .
"I still enjoying playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team".
"Of course the boys with the proper pre-seasons, they were in much better condition", Mourinho said.
"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young". The manager has names but after, it's how we feel.
Despite having just four days training after his post-World Cup break, he put in a match of the match performance against Leicester.
'So obviously it's easier to go and speak and express yourself, and we went for an objective and the big one was to win'.
The midfielder who amassed a total of 718 appearances for the club questioned the Portuguese manager's idea of a "new-look" for United, saying former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has already left the club with a ideal recipe for success.
