Manchester United captain-turned-coach Michael Carrick has dismissed suggestions Paul Pogba’s future lies away from Old Trafford.
Brought back from Juventus two years ago for a then world-record fee, Paul Pogba has been unable to fulfil his undoubted potential on a consistent basis.
Questions over Pogba’s relationship with manager Jose Mourinho have also been raised this term, with the midfielder’s non-committal answers in a recent interview fuelling talk about him.
However, Carrick — captain at United last season and coach next — gave short shrift to the suggestion Pogba could be on the move.
“It’s a bit of a silly question, really, I think,” he told Sky Sports. “Of course he has got a future.
“He’s a big player for us, he’s a great age, he’s got his peak years ahead of him.
“It’s not even something I’d give a second thought to, to be honest.”
