Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Paul Pogba will be his player next season despite constant speculation.
Reports emerged this week that Pogba has reportedly rejected Man United‘s £350,000-a-week contract offer. The new deal would make the midfielder the highest-paid player at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils do not want to risk losing the World Cup winner for free at the end of next season and reports are suggesting that the club would sell the midfielder if they received around £50million.
Solskjaer, whose side lost 4-2 to QPR earlier today in pre-season, has refused to weigh in on the recent reports surrounding Paul Pogba but admitted that there are always clubs looking to sign the midfielder.
