United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, says he thinks Paul Pogba will still be at the club next season but cannot guarantee it.

The France midfielder whose contract expires July 2021 has been linked with a move to join Zidane’s Real Madrid in the summer.

Pogba has scored 24 goals in 83 league appearances for United since rejoining from Juventus in 2016 and was also named in the PFA Team of the Year on Thursday – the only player on the team dominated by Man City and Liverpool..

Solskjaer said: “I think he will be here next season.

“Paul has done fantastic for us. We want him to do well. He is a leader in the dressing room.

“If I could guarantee I would say yes. You can’t guarantee but I think he will be.”

Speaking at a news conference before United’s game against Chelsea on Sunday, Solskjaer also said he had no intention of dropping goalkeeper David de Gea despite recent mistakes from him.

Against Manchester City on Wednesday, Bernardo Silva’s low shot went inside De Gea’s near post and the keeper was at fault when Leroy Sane’s shot also went straight through him.

“I trust David. He is best player we have had for the last six or seven years. He will be fine,” Solskjaer added.
