GETTY Man Utd news Dimitar Berbatov gives verdict on United situation

The relationship is always the same, he's the coach and I'm the player.

Former Manchester United captain Eric Cantona has told the Mail on Sunday he would take a coaching role to make the team "play creative football once again" and reiterated his belief that Pep Guardiola should be the club's manager rather than Jose Mourinho.

'As long as you do not see me with the Barcelona jersey, it's because I'm in Manchester.

Pogba, who was linked with interest from Barcelona this summer, fanned flames last month when he claimed: 'There are things I can not say, otherwise I will get fined'. "There will always be rumours".

The former Real boss is said to have a burning ambition to manage in the Premier League and he would relish the chance of managing the Manchester club. "That leaves United and Spurs fighting for fourth".

And Pogba knows this.

After winning the World Cup with France, United fans were hopeful that they would get to see the complete Paul Pogba, but even by his own admission, he has not performed as he should so far this season.

"I'm very surprised if they have offered him a five-year contract in all honesty", Allardyce said on talkSPORT. He is appeasing both sides until the opportunity for a bumper contract or a move to Barça presents itself, but it's not helping him at the moment. So these media tactics are not necessary; he will win the battle.

Paul Pogba has opened the door to a move to Barcelona.

Constantly insisting that he can not discuss his future, but simultaneously bringing up Barcelona's interest, and hinting at a potential exit one day, doesn't actually help the situation.
