However, Pogba could well have ended up leaving Old Trafford if the club had not made this change in December.
Speaking to Telefoot, Pogba said: ‘Of course. It comes into your mind’ in response to a question about his brother looking to escape Mourinho.
‘But today he is where he is. He was under contract so he had to grit his teeth and keep working.’
Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus were among the clubs linked with the 25-year-old as he struggled under Mourinho.
Now, however, Pogba is surely going to be staying where he is after finally looking happy and playing his best football at Man Utd.
