Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that Paul Pogba is happy at Old Trafford with the Norweigan coach also revealing that he wants to build his team around the French midfielder.
Pogba rejoined Manchester United from Juventus in the summer of 2016 and has undoubtedly played the best football of his Old Trafford career since Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho back in December.
However, the 26-year-old sent the transfer rumour mill into overdrive last week, claiming while on international duty that it would be a dream to play for Real Madrid, while Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane has since admitted how much he admires his countryman.
Solskjaer though seems unperturbed, believing the £89 million man remains happy in Manchester, and when asked if he’d like to build his side around Pogba, he replied:
“Definitely. I said that a few years ago as well,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“Paul is happy here, he is playing well. There was talk about the international break and what kind of issues that causes.
“One of the issues is, the players are always available for the press. They are open, and he answered a general question about any player would like to play for Real Madrid.
“He didn’t talk about himself, he is happy here.”
United face Wolves away this evening, knowing that anything but a win will seriously dent their chances of finishing in the top four this season.
