Ole wants to secure Pogba’s long-term future at the club

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to secure Paul Pogba’s long-term future at Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old World Cup winner has been linked with moves to both his former club Juventus and Real Madrid, and before the COVID19 pandemic, it had appeared that the France midfielder was set to leave United this summer.

However, since recovering from an injury Pogba has built up an impressive rapport with Bruno Fernandes as the Red Devils close in on a Champions League spot and Ole is looking to keeping the star in the club.

“Of course we want to keep the best players around the club and hopefully we can do something,” said Solskjaer.

“Since Paul has come back he’s looking better and better. He’s enjoying his football so let’s see where it takes us.”

Solskjaer is expected to make signings this summer, with Borussia Dortmund’s England international Jadon Sancho among the players he is keeping a close eye on.

However, Dortmund’s valuation of over £100m does not fit with Solskjaer’s view of the summer market.

“The whole world has changed both financially and the perception we’ve got on values,” the Norwegian added.

“Every time I put the case in front of Ed [Woodward – the club’s executive vice-chairman], I think it’s a sensible one and a realistic one. I’ve always got the club in the front of my mind.

“I don’t think short term, I always think long term and try to make good deals. I’m always quite careful with money.”
