Solskjaer: Man Utd working on more signings

Solskjaer: Man Utd working on more signings

After having a quite good season individually a year ago, it was expected that Pogba would stay in England and give it a go under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but it isn't to be now.

Pogba revealed at the end of the season that he is considering leaving Manchester United and on Friday his agent Mino Raiola claimed the club are aware of his client's wish to find the exit door.

He said: "Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on".

However, it seems as though the fans aren't the only ones who have had enough of the Frenchman, with former Manchester United defender Paul McGrath saying that his old side would be "idiots" to allow him to run the club. "Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are".


When asked directly if France worldwide Pogba would travel with the squad for a pre-season tour of Australia on Sunday, Raiola said: "I can not tell you anything".

The first time around, the money and project on offer at Manchester United was too tempting for the French midfielder, with the club also offering Juventus €20 million more by way of transfer fees as compared to Barcelona. "I live day by day".

United had previously insisted Pogba would be on the flight.

Just last month, the Times claimed both clubs have enquired after him.


The Norwegian has been at the helm since December, replacing Jose Mourinho, whose tenure ended in disappointment that he could not deliver a sustained Premier League title challenge.

However, Real Madrid and Italian champions Juventus have repeatedly been linked with Pogba, who is contracted to United until 2021.

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted his targets would be primarily young, British players, there was a collective grown among the Old Trafford support.

The English transfer window closes on August 8, but the Italian window doesn't shut until August 23, while the Spanish transfer deadline is September 2.
