"I am performing at Manchester United, I am enjoying myself and I want to do everything I can to get the club back to where it deserves to be. I am going to give my maximum, like my teammates. I prefer to concentrate on football and on returning to fitness."

"Nobody has said anything to me. I have not spoken with Ed Woodward," Pogba continued.

"I have not been spoken to about an extension. For the moment, I am at Manchester United and I am thinking above all to hit my top form.

"I think that there will be a moment where the club comes to speak to me and maybe offers me something, or not.
