Pep Guardiola in rare defence of Jose Mourinho

The Sun reports that the 27-year-old believes his earnings should put him on a level with the likes of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez, with the club said to be playing hardball on his demands.

France next play Netherlands in the Nations Cup on September 9, before Pogba returns to Manchester United, who next play Watford in the Premier League on September 15.

Since trading Liverpool for Barcelona, Suarez has gone on to enjoy huge success in the form of three La Liga titles, a quartet of Copa del Rey trophies, and the Champions League, and he'll no doubt add to his ever-expanding collection by the time the season is out - will Pogba be by his side in the New Year?

However, his latest remarks have left some scratching their heads.

These comments, however, came after an earlier interview he gave to Sky Germany that did add to the uncertainty surrounding his happiness at Old Trafford.

On Wednesday, Pogba fuelled speculation when he said "who knows what will happen in the next few months".

Pogba has reportedly had issues with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, which has persisted from last season.

Pep Guardiola backs Jose Mourinho to turn things around
And Mourinho says the 29-year-old is planning to use the two-week worldwide break to improve his fitness ahead of a busy schedule for United.

But since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, United have failed to go close in either the Premier League or Champions League, while Barca have won three La Ligas in that time and the Champions League once.

Do you think Pogba will eventually leave United if Mourinho stays as coach?

However, Mourinho is well aware of the threat posed by Sean Dyche's men, who drew 2-2 on their last visit to Old Trafford having led 2-0 - they also emerged with a point on their previous visit.

"They say I'm in danger, but I don't think so".

"I said that [it would be difficult] in the summer before the competition started", said Mourinho.

The Frenchman, though, was intent on leaving United this summer after seeing his relationship with Mourinho deteriorate during his second campaign at the club and he was keen on joining Barcelona.
