Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Real Madrid to forget about signing Paul Pogba regardless of the amount they present to the club.
Throughout the summer, Pogba was linked with a transfer to the La Liga side, having said he was keen for a new challenge ahead of the 2019-20 season. The Frenchman ended up staying at Old Trafford, but speculation about a switch to Spain has continued to simmer.
Speaking ahead of the Red Devils’ clash with West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday, Solskjaer made it clear he has no issue with Pogba, per Paul Wilson of the Guardian:
“I don’t listen to the president of Real Madrid. I am not worried now and I will never be worried in the future about Paul staying here. If it all kicks off again in January, there will be no worries then either. If we have to live with the speculation again, then we will handle it like we did in the summer.
“Paul is going nowhere, he is working hard and is totally committed to Manchester United. He is one of our big characters, someone who will walk out on to any pitch and be full of confidence. That’s what I look for in a United player. You need a big personality to play for this club.”
