There have also been persistent murmurings of a broken relationship with Mourinho, with Pogba having failed to hit top form in a 2017-18 season that saw United finish 19 points behind Manchester City in the table.

Former captain Michael Carrick and fellow coach Kieran McKenna informed Pogba that he would lead United in his first match since winning the World Cup.

His message sparked a flurry of tweets from United fans looking for hidden meanings, with some seeking reassurance that the player was settled at Old Trafford and not likely to jump ship to Barcelona.

The second game of United's Premier League campaign is at Brighton next Sunday. We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games.

Other fans were not so sympathetic.

But in comments attributed to Pogba in today's British newspapers, he says: "There are things I can say and there are things I cannot say. otherwise I will get fined".

"In the second half I have Andreas Pereira and Fred both with a yellow card".

The Ministry of Commerce says it would impose tariffs at four different rates (5% to 25%) on the USA goods that would be targeted. Administration officials believe that the US$505b Americans spend on Chinese products each year gives them leverage over China.

This could hint that Shaw will play a big part in this season, and if the backing from his once worst enemy continues, then who's to say he won't have a massive season?

However, the Red Devils managed to keep hold of Pogba as transfer deadline day passed and it looks increasingly likely that he will stay in Manchester for the season ahead.

"I mean, Manchester United, we have to show on the pitch, we have to play well, we have to be focused and we need people to trust us".

"It was nearly as if they were saying 'look this is Old Trafford, and we are United - this is how we play'".

Shaw forced a save from Kasper Schmeichel just past the 40-minute mark, settling a pass from Juan Mata after some nice build-up play from United before firing right at the Leicester keeper.

"I still enjoying playing football, I still love football and I still give my best with the team, for the team".

"I won't be full from a World Cup", Pogba told Sky Sports.

"I ran the London marathon in April past and it fell on the same weekend as the FA Cup Semi Final against Spurs, so I took him there and that was his first game".
