United star informs Mourinho that he will depart at end of season

The United manager, asked to guarantee that Pogba would not leave, made clear that he wanted the player to stay, but was cautious beyond about his long-term future.

"I think he's going to be here next season", Mourinho told the press ahead of Thursday's Premier League match at West Ham.

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.

"Unless the squad is a flawless squad - where, if you buy a player you don't like, then you buy another one - you have to keep in your squad players that you don't love - when I say love, I say it footballistically - and players that you don't totally believe have the level to the squad".

Romelu Lukaku, though, is still in a battle to be available for the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19.

"In two years, we managed to have him, even with the important injury he had at the end of last season, but we had him for lots of matches, being important, probably going to the World Cup [with Gareth Southgate's England]".

"I think he's going to be here next season", the coach said of Pogba.

"I trust some more than others to bridge that gap".

"In my squad, I have some players where I would like to have better than what I have". I worked with the players for a couple of years. To impress me? He impresses me.

"When I say love, I say it footballistically - players you do not totally believe have the degree of the group but you must keep. If he's now on 200, I hope, next season, he goes into the 250s".

"Football is not full of them, and not just football, society is not full of them, so when you find one of them you have to value and you have to keep". In my squad, I have some players where I'd love to have greater than what I have.

England worldwide 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.
