Man United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Wednesday debunked the rumors that French world champion Paul Pogba is patiently waiting for an offer to leave the club. Solskjaer said there hasn’t been any offer so far for the French world star.
“There are no offers for our players, the agents are talking all the time,” said the Norwegian technician after training in Perth where his team launches a preseason tour tainted by rumors of departure from Pogba to Real Madrid or Juventus.
“We are Manchester United, we do not have to sell players. Things were going as usual and the club was under no pressure to separate from Pogba or ‘any other player, said Solskjaer.
The Norwegian coach, who took charge as a manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, debunked the statements of Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola who said there would soon be a satisfactory solution” between his player, who wishes to leave Manchester United, and the club.
“The player did nothing wrong, he was respectful and professional in all areas,” said Mino Raiola on British radio talkSPORT on Tuesday. “The club has known its feelings for a long time,” he added, referring to Pogba’s desire to be transferred.
“When we are at Manchester United we expect such topics to come up during the summer,” said Solskjaer, whose side will face Perth Glory on Saturday and Leed United on Tuesday.
