Paul Pogba: Nemanja Matic frees me to score for Manchester United

"It's a good start for us".

Juventus have been persistently linked with a move for Emre Can, while Adam Lallana is now sidelined with a thigh injury suffered during pre-season.

Jesse Lingard says there is a buzz amongst the Manchester United players at the moment.

EFL Cup, Community Shield and Europa League glory in Mourinho's first season largely overshadowed their sixth-placed Premier League finish, but there is now a requirement to kick on further.

Pogba's record breaking £89m move from Juventus to United was the big transfer story of last summer, yet Neymar's €222m switch from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain put that deal into the financial shade last month.

The French midfielder turned in an impressive performance as he scored in United's 4-0 win against West Ham on Sunday, with the arrival of Nemanja Matic at United this summer likely to give Pogba more freedom to break forward this season.

"We're obviously back in the Champions League this season so there's many more trophies we can win".

"I think his age helps and obviously he comes from a club in the Premier League so he's not needed very long to settle in at all".

"I'm not saying Liverpool necessarily need a new goalkeeper but the Manchester United goalkeeper has been the standout player over the last couple of years". But an offer of 40 million pounds (US$53 million) for a 29-year-old was too good for Chelsea's hierarchy to turn down. Even if Mourinho has experienced the Premier League before it was at Chelsea.

The club staged an art exhibition alongside sponsors Tag Heuer that saw Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick, Chris Smalling and Jese Lingard rub shoulders with graffiti artist Alec Monopoly as a series of new murals were unveiled at the Theatre of Dreams.

Asked if the mood has changed in the dressing room, Lingard said: "You could say that". Now he is at Manchester United - different team and more experience'.
