Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba believes “there will always be talk” amid continuing speculation about his future at Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old fell out of favour last season and was linked with a return to Juventus, or Barcelona in the summer.
On Wednesday, Pogba fuelled speculation when he said: “Who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
However, on Thursday, he said: “It’s not me who’s talking. I’m trying to do my job and work on myself physically.”
The World Cup winner was speaking either side of France’s 0-0 draw with Germany in their opening Uefa Nations League match.

When asked if he was “fed up” with all the speculation, he replied: “I got back late [from the World Cup], so I’m trying to perform as well as possible.”
Asked about his relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho, Pogba replied: “We have a pure coach-player relationship, that’s right.
“One thing I can assure you, I will always give 100% – no matter which coach I always give everything for United. I cannot say more.”
Last season, Pogba was dropped to the bench by Mourinho for both legs of United’s Champions League last-16 defeat by Sevilla.
But he was made captain for the opening two games of the Premier League season in the absence of Antonio Valencia and has scored twice so far.

Tunisia: former President Ben Ali confirmed dead
All time, former Tunisia’s President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali has died in exile aged 83, his family says.
Ben Ali led the country for 30years and was credited with delivering stability and some economic prosperity.
But he received widespread criticism for suppressing political freedoms and for widespread corruption.
In 2011, he was forced from office following mass street protests. This triggered a wave of similar uprisings across the Arab world.
At least half a dozen countries in the region saw their president fall or conflicts break out in the wake of the former Tunisian leader’s downfall, in what became known as the Arab Spring.
Gantz refuse’s Netanyahu offer on unity government
After a vote tally showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tied with his main rival.
Israel’s weakened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saw his offer on Thursday for a coalition with his strongest political rival, Gantz, swiftly rebuffed after failing to secure a governing majority in a tight election.
Netanyahu’s surprise move was an abrupt change of strategy for the right-wing leader. Its rejection could spell weeks of wrangling after Tuesday’s election, which followed an inconclusive national ballot in April.
Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party emerged from the second round of voting this year slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud, but also short of enough supporters in the 120-member parliament for a ruling bloc.
Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
