Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issues stern warning to Paul Pogba as transfer talks develop | Football | sport


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted Paul Pogba has the right attitude at Old Trafford. However, he also warned Real Madrid and Juventus transfer goal that no one is taller than the club. The French international is keen to leave the Red Devils for a new challenge elsewhere after nearly five disappointing years.

Pogba wants to leave United, with Juventus currently favorites to sign the 2018 World Cup winner against Real Madrid.
But Solskjaer, speaking ahead of his side’s Premier League clash with Leeds on Sunday, insisted the player was focused.

Although it is, however, the Norwegian has issued a warning to the France international – insisting that no one is bigger than the club.

“Paul was here as a kid in the Under-18s, we signed him very early on, he comes with Man United DNA in him,” he said.

“He knows what we’re talking about. Man United is being in a team. I wouldn’t stand for anyone to think he’s bigger than Man United because nobody is.

“Absolutely no one is and Paul knows it. It’s not just Paul, it’s for all of us.

“Paul is unhappy at Manchester United, he cannot express himself as he wants and as people expect.

“He needs a change of team, he needs a change of scenery.

“He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but the best solution for all parties is a transfer in the next window.

“Otherwise, the Old Trafford club, with whom I have a great relationship, know full well that they could lose him on a free transfer, as at the moment the player has no intention of extend the contract.

Solskjaer, however, insisted he was not dissuaded by the club from dealing with Raiola.

The Norwegian is reportedly keen to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, although he was dismissed by the 20-year-old in January.

“I leave the negotiations with the agents at the club. I rarely speak to officers, ”Solskjaer says.

“I talk to the players and that’s the most important thing for me. I need to see them in the eye.

“It’s really my say. I think it’s important, the relationship between player and manager is like in the good old days.

“I want players who can also handle life. You can’t just go through agents.
