United's pre-season saw them go on tour to the United States, playing five games before travelling to German for a friendly with Bayern Munich.
By their usual standards, Manchester United have had a disastrous summer transfer window.
However, the Red Devils are believed to have informed the La Liga giants that they aren't desirous to strike Pogba off their books.
With just hours left before the summer transfer window closes, disgruntled Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he's not confident of signing any more players.
The centre-back position didn't become an issue until this summer and since then the club's hierarchy have felt that the options open to them have not warranted the investment required. I'd prefer to look to the bench and to have them rather than to have 16-year-old boys without experience and without the power to be Premier League player directly.
"But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group".
And Sherwood is adamant that Mourinho needs to try and send out a "positive vibe".
Three early points and a ideal start to the season.
Sanchez is set to partner Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata in attack with main striker Romelu Lukaku having only recently returned to training following the World Cup.
"I focus just on what we have and we go with everything we have to the first match". As soon as they want you, surely they've got to make it happen.
"There's nothing you can do now, the window is closed, he has to carry on, knuckle down and get the best results for his club". He needs to send out a positive vibe. "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.
"Now is the time to knuckle down and get on with it and start sending a positive message about the whole club".
