The Red Devils boss offered the latest updates on Paul Pogba’s future amid reports of interest from PSG.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims to have held ‘positive’ talks with Paul Pogba over his Manchester United future.
The French midfielder is out of contract next summer and hasn’t signed an extension. Talks between the player and club have made little progress, leaving United in a difficult position. Either they cash in on Pogba now or lose him on a free transfer in 11 months’ time.
Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in making a deal happen. The Ligue 1 giants could offer as much as £43 million to United for this summer, much to the chagrin of the club’s own supporters.

But Pogba has re-joined United for pre-season training in Scotland and his attitude appears to have left Solskjaer confident of keeping him at Old Trafford.
“I hope every player thinks this is the place to be to win trophies,” the United boss told ESPN.
“When you sign for Manchester United, you have to rise to the challenge. Paul has come back, and he’s fresh, and he’s always such a positive boy. The talks I’ve had with him have all been positive.”
Solskjaer also suggested he could welcome more new players after landing deals for Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Tom Heaton.
