‘Paul Pogba Is Happy At Manchester United’- Solskjaer
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Paul Pogba is happy at the club, amid rumours linking the midfielder with Real Madrid.
Pogba described the Spanish giants as “a dream club for every player” while on international duty with France, and Real boss Zinedine Zidane has said he likes the 26-year-old “a lot”.
But Solskjaer said on Monday:
“He didn’t talk about himself.
“He said anyone would like to play for Real Madrid.”
Pogba rejoined United from Juventus in 2016 for a then world record £89m but his future at Old Trafford appeared in doubt earlier this season.
There were widespread reports of acrimony between the Frenchman and former manager Jose Mourinho, before the Portuguese was sacked in December and replaced by Solskjaer.
Pogba has scored nine goals since the Norwegian took charge.
“Paul is happy here, he’s playing well,” said Solskjaer.
“He’s going to be a big, big part. You like to build your team round him and that hasn’t changed at all.”
