Ole Gunnar Solskjaer addresses Paul Pogba future at Manchester United

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer addressed midfielder Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford in his pre-match press conference ahead of the new season.

The 28-year-old’s current contract is set to expire next summer, and he is yet to pen a new deal at the Premier League outfit.

He has been linked with an exit from Manchester this summer, with Paris Saint-Germain interested in securing his services.

The Frenchman will be eligible to sign a pre-contract with a foreign club in January, increasing the speculation regarding his future.

However, Solskjaer appears relaxed about the situation of the World Cup winner.

The Norwegian boss is adamant that all his dialogue with the midfielder is positive.

He said (as per Sky Sports): “It’s been spoken and written about so often, but every discussion I have had with Paul (Pogba) is a positive one.

“He knows what we want and hopefully it stays in the background, and Paul and us will make a decision together.

“It (the situation) will always be like this with Paul – he’s a media ‘magnet’.”

PSG signed Lionel Messi on a free transfer after La Liga rules prevented him from renewing his contract at Barcelona.

On that basis, it looks unlikely that the Ligue 1 giants could raise the money to launch a suitable offer for Pogba.

Considering his talent, United should make a renewed effort to convince him to pen a new deal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be aiming to win the Premier League title this season, and the Frenchman could play a crucial role.
