Solskjaer reaches final Pogba verdict

English Premier League

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a final decision on the future of club-record signing Paul Pogba.

The 26-year-old midfielder has suffered an injury-ravaged season at United, restricting him to just eight games and has been linked with a second exit from the club.

A public spat between his agent Mino Raiola and Solskjaer also intensified the speculation that he could return to Juventus or link up with compatriot Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.

However, amidst the upturn in fortunes at the Red Devils since the turn of the year, it's believed that Pogba has now expressed his desire to remain at Old Trafford.

And when quizzed about the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, Solskjaer told BBC Football; "Paul's our player. He has two years left on his contract.

"You can expect Paul to be here [next season]."

United hold an option of extending Pogba's current deal that expires in 2021 by a further season due to a clause in his contract.
