The 23-year-old, who became the world's most expensive footballer when he sealed an £89 million return to Old Trafford, missed the start of a season with suspension and has only been training with his new club for 11 days after an extended break at the end of his Euro 2016 excursion.

However, Mourinho is confident he is in a condition to face the Saints, even if he is unlikely to last the 90 minutes.

We played with some players against Leicester with less training than Paul.

We had guys coming back from the Euros, who were on holidays, had one week of training and they played against Leicester (in the Community Shield), not at the top of their game, not ready for 90 minutes but they played and performed and it was a good way for them to accelerate that process. In this moment they are in the building-up process of their form.

Paul has been training for more than a week, around 10, 11 days, adaptation is really easy because he is a boy from here, he knows the club, he knows everybody. There's no need for time to adapt.

He needs time to build his condition and his understanding in the way the team tries to play. Yes, he's ready to play. Ninety minutes? I don't believe. Super performance? I don't believe. But in condition to accelerate his process of integration in the team, that's for sure.

Watch: Pogba comes home

Manchester United finally have their man - the world's most expensive footballer.

They've confirmed the signing of Paul Pogba for £89 million.

It was a very modern transfer - instead of the traditional football shirt and scarf to welcome him back - United released a clip of him in a rap video.

A world record fee, eclipsing the £85 million Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale three years ago.

Pogba, who's 23, says he's delighted to rejoin the club. And no wonder, with reports he'll earn more than 200 thousand pounds a week.

David Chisnall has the story.
