Manchester United reportedly have no plans to sell Paul Pogba in January, and they will reject any moves for the Frenchman in the winter window.
According to Mark Ogden of ESPN FC, there is "growing interest" at Juventus about re-signing the midfielder, and Barcelona are long-term admirers, although the Catalans' financial situation would make a move unlikely.
Against the Cottagers, United enjoyed arguably their most comfortable game of the season, coming away 4-1 winners. Pogba was not on the pitch for a minute:
Pogba's relationship with manager Jose Mourinho is clearly strained, and there were recent reports he told team-mates that "he can't go on with this situation much longer," per Miguel Delaney of The Independent.
It has long seemed apparent that one of them will eventually end up leaving the club, but it is unlikely to be in January if United are not prepared to sell Pogba.
United have kept patience with Mourinho through a poor start to the season. It will be hoped the Portuguese can oversee some better performances in the Christmas period after the morale-boosting thrashing of Fulham.
The Red Devils have five matches before the end of the year, starting with Wednesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Valencia.
Mourinho has outlined his intention to put Pogba back in the starting XI for that fixture:
He will hope to see a good performance from the World Cup winner, as Pogba will be vital for United in the second half of the season as they aim to break into the Premier League's top four.
