Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Paul Pogba will remain at the club this summer.

The Frenchman has experienced a tough season at Old Trafford, featuring just eight times in all competitions due to injury problems.

Pogba’s absence has only increased speculation over his future, with the midfielder reportedly unhappy at Man Utd and being linked with a move away.

Does Pogba have a future at Man Utd? Five things to know…

  • Paul Pogba has constantly been linked with a move away from Man Utd.
  • The Frenchman has a year and a half remaining on his current contract.
  • He has played just eight times this season due to injury problems.
  • Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has previously disagreed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the future of the Frenchman.
  • But Solskjaer is adamant Pogba will remain a Man Utd player next season.

Tensions between Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola and Solskjaer have risen over the season as a result of the rumours and the pair entered a war of words last month.

Things have since settled down between the pair, but the doubts surrounding Pogba’s future remain as the summer edges closer.

However, Solskjaer remains confident Pogba will remain a Man Utd player next season.

“Paul’s our player. He has two years left on his contract, a year plus the option of another,” he told reporters after Man Utd’s 5-0 win over LASK in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.

“You can expect Paul to be here [next season], yeah.”

Prior to the win in Austria, which was played behind closed doors due to coronavirus fears, Solskjaer revealed Pogba would be returning to training soon having not yet reunited with his teammates.

However, Pogba’s return has been delayed even further after the Premier League’s suspension until at least April 3 due to coronavirus. So far, eight of the 20 Premier League clubs have had personnel in self-isolation due to the virus, with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi both testing positive.

The second leg of Man Utd’s Europa League last-16 tie against LASK has also been suspended by Uefa.
