Ole Gunnar speaks out on Pogba's future amid transfer links

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended Paul Pogba, as rumours linking the French international with a move away from the club continue gathering momentum. 

Despite the rumours and interest from various clubs, the World Cup winner is currently with the team for their preseason tour of Australia.

Speaking during a press conference, the Norwegian revealed that he has had a chat with the wantaway midfielder, and they are not pressured in any way to sell him or any of their players. 

"It's been a long summer, hasn't it?" Solskjaer said at the WACA Stadium. "There's been loads of talks and speculation about many of our players, both ins and outs," 

"But for me it's business as usual. When you're at Man United you expect all these things to pop in the summer. I've spoken to Paul, I've spoken to Rom...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,"  he said. 

Pogba has a long-standing interest in joining his fellow countryman Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, with Juventus also keen on taking him back to Italy.

The former Juventus man cut a frustrated figure towards the end of last season, having flourished under Ole Gunnar in the first few matches.
