Manchester United News: Solskjaer Shuts The Door On Paul Pogba

Breaking: Paul Pogba Has Told Manchester United He Wants To Leave

It seems like there's always something going on with Paul Pogba and Manchester United, as the midfielder reportedly wanted to leave the club in the summer, but the Red Devils refused to let him walk.

Mino Raiola has openly talked about his client's desire to leave Old Trafford, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has constantly played down the situation.

So, when asked about Florentino Perez' words hinting at a potential move for Pogba in January, the Norweigan pretty much shut the door on any potential deal for Pogba:

"I don't listen to the president of Real Madrid. But Paul is working hard here and he is totally committed to Manchester United. We have seen that while he's been injured. He has been working like crazy to get himself fit because he wants to play for us and he wants to help his team-mates. I am not worried now and I will never be worried in the future about Paul Pogba staying here. 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 as we did in the summer. Paul is going nowhere. He is happy here when he's playing," Solskjaer told the media, as quoted by The Telegraph.

Both Manchester United and Real Madrid have struggled to start the season, so perhaps some new faces would be better for both parties, but Solskjaer has constantly claimed that Pogba is a major part of his project going forward.

As for Los Blancos, they could again turn their attention towards Donny van de Beek or Christian Eriksen if United refuse to listen to offers for the World Cup winner.

We haven't heard the last of this and we all know Raiola's ties with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, so it'll be interesting to see how he orchestrates Pogba's departure next season.
