Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drops update on Paul Pogba's future

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drops update on Paul Pogbas future

Pogba is going nowhere - Solskjaer

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stressed that Paul Pogba is totally committed to the Red Devils despite the continuous speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

The Frenchman was heavily touted to join the Madrid giants during the summer after he acknowledged that he would prefer a fresh challenge after three years in Manchester.

However, no deal materialised during the course of the European transfer window but this has not ceased the speculation regarding the midfielder's future at Old Trafford.

Speaking before the Hammers game, Solskjaer said that Pogba is going nowhere and the World Cup winner is fully committed to the team's cause for the season.

"Paul is working hard here and he is totally committed to Manchester United. I am not worried now - and I will never be worried in the future about Paul Pogba staying here," Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

"If it all kicks off again with Madrid in January then there will be no worries then either. If we have to live with the speculation again then we will handle it like we did in the summer. Paul is going nowhere."

Pogba has been sidelined since the international break with an ankle injury picked up during the away game at Southampton. Solskjaer has yet to confirm a suitable return date for the former Juventus man.

Aside from Pogba, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are out of contention for Sunday's clash against West Ham United at the London Stadium.
