Jose Mourinho feels Paul Pogba will be at Manchester United next season as the manager guaranteed neither him nor the club want to sell the star French midfielder. The club had from him many great years playing football and now, when his body says "enough", the club and myself will want to keep the man.

'It's a muscular problem, ' said Mourinho.

England global Marcus Rashford has been used on the left wing for a majority of the campaign and has scored six goals in 33 league appearances for United but media reports have linked the 20-year-old with a loan move next season to gain experience.

As Wheeler noted, the France global midfielder has recently been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Mourinho was adamant that Rashford would not be going anywhere next season despite suggestions that he could be allowed to leave on a loan deal.

Set to take up a coaching role at United, Carrick recently appeared on the bench against Swansea City in March as part of Mourinho's backroom staff, and the Portuguese tactician believes his current captain has the right attributes to make it as a top-level coach.

"I give my assistants very good conditions for their evolution and I think Michael can be very positive for us".

The Frenchman's agent has already sounded out Real Madrid, Juventus, Manchester City and PSG, report the Daily Record.

"I trust some [players] over others that could bridge that gap". The most important quality is to be a man and football is not full of them.

"If you go to the Premier League managers, I don't say every one, but I say the majority of them will tell you the same. So, in this moment, for me, he's staying", Mourinho added.

Mourinho said last week that there was "no chance" of goalkeeper David de Gea, voted the club's player of the year, leaving after he was linked with a move to Real Madrid. To impress me? He impresses me. "Unless there is a flawless squad, where you buy one goalkeeper you don't like, you buy another one".

Mourinho has no plans for a major overhaul of his squad, arguing he does not have the finances to buy players at will, which could be interpreted as a criticism of Manchester City.

With second place in the Premier League nearly assured, the final two league fixtures are all but games for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to experiment with his line-up ahead of the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 19.
