Paul Pogba news

Pogba - Solskjaer provides transfer update

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has discussed recent developments surrounding Paul Pogba's proposed exit out of Old Trafford this summer. The French World Cup winning star, who has indicated that he is ready to quit Man Utd, has been working with his agent Mino Raiola to push a transfer through to former club Juventus.

Pogba has explained in interviews that he feels up to a new challenge, but has since reported back to Manchester United for pre-season training.

According to numerous reports, Solskjaer has kept faith in the player, despite Pogba's desire for a move elsewhere.

Solskjaer, in talks with reporters, quipped: "As far as I'm aware there have been no bids for any players. We are Man United and we don't have to sell. It's business as usual.  

"Paul has never been a concern for me. He's working hard, he's a true professional and a proud boy, same answer again. I can't be sitting here talking about what Paul and his agent are saying. He's got a few years left of his contract and he's been fantastic.

"I'm here to talk about the season pre-season coming. Paul's never put himself out of the team, always given his best and I can't report anything. Agents talk all the time and we've not had any bids, that's all I can say for this matter."
