Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has confirmed that his client is not for sale amid reports that the France international could leave Manchester United.
Speculation has been mounting over Pogba's future owing to reports of a rift with Jose Mourinho.
Cameras captured a tense exchange between the duo in a Manchester United training recently and the World Cup winner has added further fuel to the fire that he could leave by refusing to commit himself when asked about his future plans.
Reports in the summer suggested that Raiola was trying to engineer a move to Barcelona for the 25-year-old but as deadline day approached his client stayed at Old Trafford and Raiola has made it clear United don't want to sell.
“I prefer not to talk about [Pogba],” he told Rai Sport.
“It's a very delicate moment and we all know that, but Manchester United have been very clear with everybody: Pogba is not on the market.”
Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy at United following his comments about Mourinho's playing style against Wolves.
“We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves,” Pogba said. “When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack.
“I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.
“Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press as we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Arsenal last season.
“When we play like this it’s easier for us.”
