Pogba told My future is currently in Manchester united.

Paul Pogba has cast doubt on his Manchester United future saying who knows what will happen in the near future.

Pogba’s future has been the subject of plenty of speculation amid reported interest in the World Cup winner form Barcelona and former club Juventus.

In an exclusive interview  the 25-year-old midfielder refused to take the opportunity to declare his intention is to remain at Old Trafford in the long-term.

Pogba has endured a somewhat fractious relationship with Jose Mourinho at times, with the Portuguese criticising the midfielder on a number of occasions.

At the start of the season, the France international went as far as saying he feared being fined if he said what he really thought when asked if he was happy and comfortable at United.
