Jose Mourinho expects Paul Pogba to stay

Anthony Martial of Manchester United in action during the Premier League match between Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester United at Amex Stadium

Carrick also won the Champions League's sister competition, the Europa League last season, as United brushed past Ajax 2-0, while he also has a Club World Cup and six Community Shields in his trophy cabinet.

During a pre-match press conference on Wednesday, Mourinho confirmed that the Belgian striker will not be available for Man United's remaining matches in the Premier League due to injury.

It is also claimed that the likes of Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC have shown interest in landing the teenager this summer.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to captain Michael Carrick.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said last month that Pogba had been offered to the club by agent Mino Raiola during the January transfer window and it has been reported in recent days that PSG have also been asked if they want the midfielder.

While Mourinho's words seem positive, they still leave room for inference that he can not guarantee that the player himself wants to stay.

Mourinho added: "Obviously we could keep [those players]".

XI Jinping took Kim Jong-UN in Dalian
Kim's father, Kim Jong Il, feared flying, fuelling speculation that the younger Kim may not be willing to travel far to meet Trump .

With second place in the Premier League nearly assured, the final two league fixtures are all but games for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to experiment with his line-up ahead of the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 19.

Set to take up a coaching role at United, Carrick recently appeared on the bench against Swansea City in March as part of Mourinho's backroom staff, and the Portuguese tactician believes his current captain has the right attributes to make it as a top-level coach.

"Unless you can do that, you have to keep players you don't love - when I say love, I say it "footballistically" - and players you don't totally believe have the level of the squad".

"What does he need to do to impress me? If he's now on 200, I hope, next season, he goes into the 250s". Unless there's an ideal squad, where you purchase one goalkeeper you do not like, you get another one; you purchase a central defender you do not like, you get another one.

"So, in this moment, for me, he's staying".

While there are definitely players within the United squad who would benefit from moves, it's tough to put Pogba in that bracket.
