Pogba still required at Man Utd, despite talk of a move away

Despite constant rumours linking French international midfielder Paul Pogba with a move away from Manchester United, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists that Pogba will stay put at Old Trafford. Juventus and Real Madrid have both been in contact with Pogba's agent and management team regarding a transfer move.

Pogba is believed to be unhappy at United and had recently indicated that this summer would be a good time to leave the club.

Paul Pogba was not a part of Man Utd's squad for the club's final pre-season friendly, leaving the press to speculate on the World Cup winning player's long term future at the club.

Solskjaer took the time to discuss Pogba with journalists, when asked if Pogba would be staying put: "No doubts at all. I wasn't expecting him [on the flight to Cardiff]. I spoke to him after training and he didn't feel right. He'll probably be back early on next week training.

"It's not an injury, it's just some pain. He's not injured, but I wasn't going to risk anything this weekend. He should be OK for Chelsea."
