Say what? - Pogba reacts to being 'offered' to Man City by Raiola

Jose Mourinho has drawn up a list of six players he wants to sign

Jose Mourinho has drawn up a list of six players he wants to sign

I think we have 10 more points than last season, something like that.

Sky Sports will show Manchester City vs. Manchester United live on its Main Event and Premier League channels. City had become champions of England for the third time - the same as Huddersfield Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"That's why it will be so important that in the bad moments, more are going to happen, bad moments will happen next Tuesday (as well), that they feel our supporters are there".

"United won't play the way Liverpool play, they haven't got the legs to do that all around the pitch".

He has created another 15 Premier League goals this term, along with seven efforts of his own, and is a leading contender for the PFA Player of the Year award alongside Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah. There has not been one since. "We try to pass the ball because we believe the players are football players to play with the ball and we try to let them enjoy [being] with the ball".

Gabriel Jesus has started up front in Aguero's absence and admitted he produced one of his worst performances in City's 3-0 Champions League defeat at Liverpool, but Guardiola is backing the Brazilian to respond.

United haven't had a bad season by any stretch of the imagination, and the progress they have made under Jose Mourinho hasn't always been obvious, but it's most definitely there.

And the former Arsenal forward believes Mourinho will "turn up and play for 0-0" - because United can not match Liverpool's attacking intent. No team has ever wrapped up the league with more than five games to spare, with United now holding that record from season 2000-01. "United defend differently from Liverpool". Several of his players have a point to prove, reputations to recover after too many poor showings.

He explained: "Pogba is an exceptional player".

The 26-year-old has played 135 times for City, scoring 34 goals and assisting a further 57 strikes.

It's a scenario that Jose Mourinho and Alexis Sanchez, in particular, would have hoped to avoid. It is early days for the Chilean at his new club and he is working hard in training.

A deal for Pogba would have been a huge shock midway through the Premier League season, particularly with the latter having set United back £89million in August 2016, which was then a world record.

After decades of living in United's shadow, City have changed the balance of power in Manchester firmly in their favour and are on the verge of their third title since 2012.

There has been speculation about Paul Pogba's situation at Manchester United and this story does nothing to quell the exit talk surrounding the midfielder as the summer transfer window draws ever nearer.
