Paul Pogba is non-committal about his long-term future with Manchester United but says he does not have to be "best friends" with Jose Mourinho.
Pogba's second season back in the Premier League has been a mixed one, with Mourinho publicly questioning his contribution at times, which has also seen him left out of the starting XI or taken off early.
The France international, signed for £89m, has seen his name linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and, while he did not rule that out, it did not appear to be a priority for him when he spoke with French TV network Canal Plus.
"We are never sure of anything but contractually it's sure, yes," he said when asked about his position at United.
"I can never look far into the future. It also depends how it goes with the club, how things work out.
"I grew up with a father and a mother who were Marseille supporters. Paris (PSG) was never really part of my daily life. But later on, yes why not play at the Parc des Princes? It's a great pitch and a nice stadium."
Pogba is also thankful to Mourinho for making him United captain during the season and said there is no need for them to have a perfect relationship off the field.
Manchester United are interested in signing Willian from Chelsea this summer, according to Sky sources.
"There were times where I wasn't playing, I was on the bench. There was a lot of talk, people thought it wasn't working out," Pogba added.
"But a coach and a player don't have to be best friends, we don't have to go to restaurants together. I had a few little problems too... football is sometimes all about the mental side. He put me on the bench and I gave my response on the pitch. I always give everything I've got.
"He made me progress in leadership. I had the armband with Mourinho, it was the first time in a club, it's important for me, it makes me grow to be also a leader in the France team."
