Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has denied suggestions of a fallout with manager Jose Mourinho, insisting he’s on good terms with the Red Devils coach, reports The Sun.

The French international re-joined United from Juventus in 2016 and has gone on to make 90 appearances in all competitions over two stints at Old Trafford, scoring and creating 32 goals.

He’s struggled for consistency under Mourinho but has still contributed 15 goals in 23 Premier League outings this season. United look on course for a second-placed finish in the top flight and have an FA Cup final to play for next month.

Victory at Wembley could see the 25-year-old win his third trophy since coming back to England, but there will still be question marks over his long-term future. The consensus is that he’s unhappy in Manchester and instead wanted to join Real Madrid in 2016.

Regardless, Pogba has downplayed the rumours he and Mourinho aren’t seeing eye to eye and describes their relationship as that of a typical player and coach at any club – he listens to his boss and takes on his advice.

Pogba told Canal Football Club: “I do not have a problem with Mourinho. I do not think he has one either. He’s the coach, he’s going to make choices and I, as a player, I accept him. That is all.

 “For now, I’m at Manchester United. I really only think about the present. Transfers are not in my head. You know, if I listened to everyone [on links to Paris Saint-Germain], I would be everywhere. I’m just thinking of the present, the FA Cup final and the World Cup.”
