Mourinho Expects Paul Pogba Top Stay At Man United

Mourinho added: "Of course we can keep [those players]". It's an honor to wear the captain's [armband], and just to wear the shirt and play at Old Trafford.

"No", was the Portuguese's emphatic response when asked whether he felt loaning out the young Rashford would have any benefits.

The Frenchman has endured three hard campaigns in England, and is said to be frustrated with life in Manchester and the lack of first team starts with the FA Cup finalists this season. A lot of points.

"What does he need to do to impress me?"

Mourinho admitted that his squad needs improvement in the off-season both in terms of quality from the transfer market but also from within in terms of mentality. He impresses me. 'That's the reason why he was selected for every match of the season, absolutely every match of the season and that's why he played in so many of them, so he doesn't need to leave to play. You buy a central defender, you don't like, and you buy another one.

But Sheringham believes 20-year-old is at an age where he must play more matches for Manchester United.

Ever since Man U was beaten at Brighton and Hove Albion by 1 - 0, Mourinho was analytical of his side's play, saying their poor show clearly demonstrated that few of his team players "are not as good as people think". It is not like you always lose against the big teams because you are afraid of them or you always lose against the small teams because you don't respect them. That's normal. I know the players. "If he's now on 200, I hope, next season, he goes into the 250s".

United are set to finish second in the Premier League, having beaten every other team in this season's top six - but that has left the manager questioning their consistency. The club had a great many years from him playing football. He has had a major doubt on the mental state of his team, post stating that something "doesn't smell right" within the club.

It remains to be seen whether Carrick will be handed a place in the squad for United's FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19th, though Mourinho's comments suggest that Sunday's game will be his last.

Consequently, talk has been rife that Manchester United may offload Pogba to one of Real Madrid, PSG or Barcelona this summer. "That's my feeling. In this moment, for me, he's staying, yes".
