Solskjaer insists Paul Pogba will not be sold by Man United
Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that Paul Pogba will not leave Old Trafford in the current transfer window even though the French midfielder has less than a year left on his contract.
United are looking to persuade the Frenchman to sign a contract extension and further commit to the club.
“Yes, I expect Paul to be here when the first of September comes,” Solskjaer told reporters.
“If you’ve got a five-year contract or a one-year contract, when you sign for Man Utd you have to rise to the challenge of performing on a consistent level.”
The 28-year-old, who is in the last year of his contract with United, has been linked with a move away from the club with clubs like Paris Saint-Germain reportedly showing interest.
“I have no worries about Paul whatsoever,” the Norwegian manager said. “Paul is enjoying his football and I’ve said many times, my job is to make sure we’re getting the best out of Paul and Bruno (Fernandes) and all the very good players we’ve got within a team structure.”
