Paul Pogba has confirmed he could leave Manchester United in January.

The midfielder, who helped France win the World Cup earlier in the summer, is said to have a strained relationship with Jose Mourinho.

After returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016, Pogba’s second spell at the club has been blighted by reoccurring reports of bust-ups with the Red Devils boss.

Pogba was thought to be keen on a move to Barcelona before the summer transfer window closed and he has refused to rule out a departure in January.

"There was a lot of talk, but it was just like that, I’m under contract in Manchester," he told Sky Germany.

"My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I’m playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.

"One thing I can assure you: I will always give 100 percent, no matter which coach I always give everything for United – I cannot say more."

Asked about his relationship with Mourinho, Pogba remained coy, adding: "We have a pure coach-player relationship, that’s right."

Amid rumours linking Pogba with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona, Luis Suarez says the Frenchman would be welcome at the Nou Camp.

"Pogba’s an elite player who’s won everything," former Liverpool striker Suarez told RAC1 on Tuesday.

"He has a lot of quality and he’s one of the references at United. I think he would like to be competing for more than he is at the moment.

"He’s not a player that belongs to Barca, but he would always be welcome."

Pogba hinted at his frustrations at Manchester United last month after a Premier League fixture by saying "there are things I cannot say otherwise I will get fined".

Having lost consecutive league games to Brighton and Tottenham, the Red Devils bounced back with an important victory over Burnley before the international break.
