Jose Mourinho insists Paul Pogba remains happy and motivated at Manchester United despite reports claiming the France star is unsettled and wants to join Barcelona.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed he will be without at least six players for the start of the Premier League season.

Coming in for a world record transfer fee of around £89 million, the World Cup victor took a while to get going back in Manchester, but he did help the club win both the League Cup and the Europa League in his first season back.

Eurosport's Team of the Tournament.do Ronaldo and Pogba make the cut?

Speaking at a news conference to preview Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester, Mourinho told reporters he does not expect any deadline-day activity at Old Trafford, despite also being linked to centre-backs Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng. "I would love to see that!"

United were asked if they would be interested in signing Atlético Madrid defender Diego Godín, only for the Uruguay captain to sign a new contract with the Spanish club a few days later.

Leicester manager Claude Puel: "We lost Riyad Mahrez, who was a very valuable player for us, so it was important to keep our best players and have good additions to the squad".

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight.

"Because you're not telling me Man Utd couldn't go out there and spend money on players". The time has come for United to win more trophies.

Three early points and a ideal start to the season.

However, Eurosport understand from reliable sources close to the club that Pogba has not made any financial demands to the club.

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho. "I like to work with my players".

"And I think United should be big enough, three or four months into the season, if we are seeing the same things as previous year, just get rid of him".

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".
