Man United man to sign new contract at Old Trafford

The 25-year-old France global is one of a number of regulars left out of the team for Tuesday's League Cup encounter with Derby County. "We are here to attack", Pogba told the media after the match.

Mourinho said on Sky Sports shortly before kick-off that Pogba and others had been "rested" for the Derby game.

The Portuguese midfielder joined the Wolves a year ago and helped them gain promotion to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old World Cup victor tried to force through a transfer to Barcelona days before the window closed but United chiefs were unwilling to sell their prized asset.

The squad, which includes World Cup victor Paul Pogba and David de Gea, is said to have become a source of frustration for Mourinho following a lack of transfer activity.

Following the 3-2 defeat to Brighton, he admitted his attitude had not been right and after the draw with Wolves questioned why United were unable to produce more attacking football at Old Trafford, while appearing to point the finger at Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba's relationship looks to have taken a turn for the worse with numerous outlets including BBC Sport and The Telegraph stating that Jose Mourinho has told the midfielder that he will never captain Manchester United again.

"No fall out. The person who made the decision to be second-captain was also me".

"The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager's decision", the source added.

It was largely attributed to Jose Mourinho's side being knocked out of the Champions League early last season.

United were in action against Derby in the Carabao Cup third round. That's Old Trafford. We're here to attack. We know that position is one that requires continued effort and investment to maintain.
