Paul Pogba pledged to continue giving his best for fans, teammates and, "the people that trust me" in the wake of renewed speculation about his Manchester United future. Two years after returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in a world-record deal, Pogba, 25, is reported to be so unhappy that he has informed executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward of his desire to leave.

Pogba only returned to training at the start of the week after helping France to win the tournament but he was thrust into the starting line-up on Friday and given the captain's armband, when his penalty set United on course for a 2-1 win against Leicester. "Of course it makes me proud to wear this [armband] at a big club like Man United. I always give my best for the fans, for my teammates and for the people that trust me," he said.

Friday's win was a welcome boost at a time of discontent. "The performance wasn't the best, but it's better to start like this and finish well than start very well and finish bad," he added.
