Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he has spoken to Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku amidst transfer speculations.
Solskjaer revealed that he told the duo that the club won’t be forced to sell them.
‘For me it’s business as usual. When you’re at Man United you expect all these these things to pop in the summer,’ said Solskjaer.
‘I’ve spoken to Paul, I’ve spoken to Rom, Rashy, Jesse, I’ve spoken to all of the players, more or less, over the summer, you keep in touch with them, as far as I’m aware up until now, we don’t have any bids for our players, so there’s no reason to say most of our players have long contracts, we’re Man United, we don’t have to sell players. ‘What I have to say about Paul, for example, it looks like it’s gonna be a media, I don’t wanna call it… but it’s an agenda against Paul.
‘He’s a top, top bloke. He’s a great, great professional, he’s never been any problems, he’s got a heart of gold. ‘And, for example, Jesse and Paul yesterday walking around and it’s portrayed as a fight between the two boys and I know you’re here to sell players and sell stories, but there’s no problems between the boys at all, they’re all professional, pre-season has been very good so far. ‘I’m here to talk about the whole team, pre-season and the season coming, Paul’s never put himself out of the team, he’s always wanted to play, he’s given his best and I can’t report anything.
Despite Pogba’s agent Mino Raniola stating expressing his clients desire to leave the club, Solskjaer stated that Manchester United have not received any bid for him.
‘Agents talk all of the time and, as I said, we’ve not had any bids, from any clubs, that’s all I can say about this matter. ADVERTISEMENT ‘Paul’s never been a concern for me, when he’s on the pitch, he’s working hard, he’s a true professional, he’s a proud boy. ‘Same answer again, I can’t be sitting here talking about Paul and what agents are saying. We’ve got a few years left of his contract and he’s been fantastic since he’s come back for training.’
