Solskjaer ‘positive’ over Pogba’s Man Utd future


Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that his talks with Paul Pogba have been “positive” amid speculations that the France midfielder is set for a move to Paris Saint Germain.

Pogba is yet to agree to a new deal with Man United. The current deal expires in June 2022.

The 28-year-old has been linked with a transfer away from England, but Solskjaer insists the World Cup winner remains positive about his United future.

“I hope every player thinks this is the place to be to win trophies. When you sign for Manchester United, you have to rise to the challenge,” said Solskjaer.

“Paul has come back and he’s fresh and he’s always such a positive boy. The talks I’ve had with him have all been positive.”

The ‘Red Devils’ have added Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane to their squad.

England forward Sancho joined the club from Borussia Dortmund and Varane from Real Madrid.

Solskjaer admits further high-profile additions are less likely following that spree.

“Anything from now is a bonus,” he said when asked about further signings before the deadline.

“I have to say that with the two signings we’ve got, we’ve strengthened where we wanted to strengthen. Let’s see what happens. You never know in football. Anything can happen, ins and outs.”

Solskjaer hopes to have Sancho and Varane on the bench for Man United’s Premier League opener against Leeds next weekend.

Ending Man United’s four-year trophy drought is Solskjaer’s goal this season as he looks to win the first silverware of his reign.
