He loves to play, so he's not very happy when he can't help his team-mates, and he's always giving it his all.

MANCHESTER, April 13 ― Paul Pogba is staying focused on Manchester United despite growing speculation linking him with a move to Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

While a third made a huge claim about the full-back's future at Old Trafford.

Since the Norwegian took the job, Pogba has scored nine goals and assisted a further seven in 19 games but according to French publication, Les Parisien the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor wants out.

Solskjaer acknowledged the possibility of Real Madrid taking an active interest in the World Cup victor and perhaps even mounting a publicity campaign to try to sign him.

"I think that you can see that in his ideas on how to play the game and getting back to what United was before".

Sources have told ESPN FC that Solskjaer is set to oversee a summer clear out that could involve a number of senior players. It's not just about one player. It's not just about Paul.

"He had his highest ever output physically on so he's never ran as much in a Man United shirt as Wednesday night". Given Manchester United's fine run of form under the Norwegian, prior to those two defeats, few were surprised at the decision but the run of indifferent form appears to have continued since he signed on the dotted line. "That was brilliant. The effort and attitude are there", Solskjaer said.

Considering who might take on the role, the manager said: "We've had Antonio, he's going".

"I'm under no illusions that this is not going to be plain sailing, it's going to be hard", Solskjaer said, per Goal.

"Please, no more Ashley Young", one supporter said.
