EPL: Solskjaer speaks on Pogba leaving in January

0

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has maintained that Paul Pogba will not be sold in the January transfer window.

Pogba was touted for a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, having expressed a desire to undertake a new challenge at the end of last season.

The France international was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, but Solskjaer ultimately convinced the playmaker to stay in Manchester for the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

Unfortunately, Pogba has been unable to make a significant contribution to United’s cause since then, having struggled with a persistent ankle injury.

Solskjaer does not expect the 26-year-old to return to action for another month, with another bout of surgery on the cards as he continues his recovery.

Pogba sat out United’s 0-0 draw against Wolves in their third-round FA Cup tie at Molineux on Saturday evening, and Solskjaer was forced to field questions over his future once again post-match.

When asked if there was any chance the World Cup winner could leave Old Trafford in the winter market, the United manager responded defiantly: “You won’t see Paul [Pogba] go in January.”
