Jose Mourinho confirms Paul Pogba will captain Manchester United on Sunday

Barcelona transfer news Man Utd star Paul Pogba is intent on joining Barcelona

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba is not like he is being portrayed now in the media.

Reports claimed the French midfielder was unhappy with life at United, particularly his allegedly strained relationship with Jose Mourinho, and had agreed personal terms with Barca. I think he showed that in the summer, I think he's showed that in good periods at United.

Asked about those remarks, Mourinho said: "I don't care".

The Belgian is singlehandedly the club's best option up front simply because of how much he suits Jose's style while the rest struggle a little to lead the line.

Looking to the match, I think the best way to look at it is to remember that three months ago we lost 1-0 there, " Mourinho said.

"Please don't write lies, please don't put Paul in a situation where he appears not to be polite, we've never had a heated discussion and it's always been about respect". "I don't think Antonio will play in the next match so [Pogba] will be captain again".

"We never had a hard - I don't know how you like to say - exchange of words. I repeat I want him to work the way he is doing and to play the way he is doing and, for me, that's the only thing that matters".

He is one of the most fascinating, incredible players in the whole history of Spain. We have to play every game like it was an important game.

"You have to ask Paul", said Mourinho.

"He's working well, playing well, he does for the fans, he does for the team and that's what I want, to play for the team and I couldn't be happier than what I am".

Mourinho confirmed Martial's fine revolved around recent events involving his late return following the birth of his second child. "If he doesn't that's football". I want him to play well, to play for the team, for the fans and that's what he did.

"Going back to the question is he the captain?"

United will still be without usual skipper Antonio Valencia on Sunday. Last season we thought he should before the game against Basel [in November]. The only potential suitors for him are all in Italy, and the Serie A transfer window will be closing in a little over an hour, with no traction at all on a potential move for Darmian.

"For me it's good news that Matteo is staying". They know how to play and they've kept the same team, they bought a few new players.
