Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted Paul Pogba is happy to remain at Old Trafford, despite the midfielder’s recent comments about Real Madrid.
Pogba gave insinuations about his long-term future after describing Madrid as a “dream” club, while on international duty with France.
The United star doesn’t hide his admiration for Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who has also suggested that Pogba could one day join him at the Bernabeu.
However, Solskjaer has played down talks of a summer move for Pogba and insists the France international wants to remain with United for the near future.
“Definitely, I said that a few years ago as well,” Solskjaer stated during his pre-match news conference ahead of Manchester United’s Tuesday’s Premier League clash against Wolves
“Paul is happy here, he is playing well. There was talk about the international break and what kind of issues that causes.
“One of the issues is, the players are always available for the press. They are open, and he answered a general question about any player would like to play for Real Madrid.
“He didn’t talk about himself, he is happy here.”
