Paul Scholes: 'Paul Pogba must use his brain'

Reports: Manchester United Ready To Spend £50m+ On Harry Maguire

Jose Mourinho has said that the World Cup provided the "perfect habitat" for Paul Pogba to flourish after a hard season with Manchester United.

United were runners-up to Manchester City last season, finishing 19 points behind the champions, and lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

The Red Devils manager has voiced his frustrations at the club not strengthening his squad this summer.

So a team working for six weeks minimum with all the players except one defender and one striker that can join in the last weekend and probably be available: "this is clear it's a much better situation for them".

Mourinho was speaking to the media in Los Angeles before his side's pre-season friendly against AC Milan on Thursday.

"Mourinho's comments about Pogba not having "given his best" for United and having a propensity to "lose focus" and "lose concentration" over the course of a season don't make any sense", said Parker.

Asked how many new players he would like to bring in, Mourinho said: 'I would get two more players'.

Mourinho suggested Pogba had been more consistent at the World Cup because he felt "extra commitment" to France and hinted he should adopt the same approach when he gets back in a United shirt. So against Leicester and Brighton the situation is not incredible for us.

"This feeds the concentration of a player, so I think it was the flawless environment for him".

"We bought a fantastic player [Diego Dalot]".

Manchester United are in hot pursuit of England's World Cup hero Harry Maguire, but will have to let go of Marcos Rojo to fund a move.

The 28-year-old has enjoyed a successful two seasons at Juve but is believed to be interested in a new challenge although he was coy about his future recently when welcoming new signing Ronaldo to Juventus.
