Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says midfielder Paul Pogba is staying at Manchester United for the rest of the season.
The France international has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford throughout the summer, with Real Madrid and Juventus both reported to be interested in a big-money move for the 26-year-old.
Pogba’s comments following Manchester United‘s 4-0 win over Chelsea last weekend increased speculation he could still leave this summer, the World Cup winner saying a “question mark remains” over his future.
The transfer window is open for European clubs until September 2, however Solskjaer is adamant the midfielder will not be leaving and insists Pogba remains happy at the club.
“I’ve got no concerns on Paul. For me, he is going to stay,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference.
“I don’t think it is odd saying, ‘I enjoy playing, I have fun with my team-mates, I enjoy what I’m doing, I love my job — and I’ve enjoyed the game’.
“Of course, that sentence with the question mark about him — there’s always question marks about Paul Pogba.
“There’s not one press conference where I have not answered a question about Paul Pogba.
“Eighty percent of what he said is ‘I enjoyed the game’ and his time now.”
