Spanish giants FC Barcelona have not given up on signing Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, according to reports coming out of Spain.

As such, it was expected that Sanchez would be effervescent against Leicester City, sharper and more focused than his teammates and opponents ahead of a crucial campaign for Jose Mourinho's team.

But he complained about what he sees as preferential treatment afforded to the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham.

Jose Mourinho received an instant reward for handing Paul Pogba the captaincy when the World Cup-winning midfielder paved the way for Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Leicester as the English Premier League season opened on Friday.

"Fred didn't play for Brazil, Lee Grant is going to be third choice goalkeeper and they've lost a great midfield player in Michael Carrick, Daley Blind's gone - just nothing has happened".

"I'm not confident", he told a pre-match news conference when asked whether another signing might be made.

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred. "I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"I don't want to speak too soon after one game but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world", he said.

"I have my players and I like my players", he said.

"But it's the same conversation as with [Ashley] Young, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Jesse] Lingard, it's the same".

"Romero, he had a surgery after his injury before the World Cup", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News.

"I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches".

"To know how they feel physically mentally to try to give us a help, if they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour".

"In football, you need time to work and you need players on the pitch to work with which we didn't have until now".
