Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played down Paul Pogba’s recent comments about Real Madrid and insists the midfielder is happy to remain at Old Trafford.

Pogba fuelled speculation about his long-term future after describing Madrid as a “dream” club, while on international duty with France.

The midfielder also expressed his admiration for Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who in turn suggested that Pogba could one day join him at the Bernabeu.

However, Solskjaer has played down talks of a summer move for Pogba and insists the France international wants to remain with United for the foreseeable future.

“Definitely, I said that a few years ago as well,” Solskjaer stated during his pre-match news conference ahead of Manchester United’s Tuesday’s Premier League clash against Wolves

“Paul is happy here, he is playing well. There was talk about the international break and what kind of issues that causes.

“One of the issues is, the players are always available for the press. They are open, and he answered a general question about any player would like to play for Real Madrid.

“He didn’t talk about himself, he is happy here.”

While Solskjaer is confident of keeping Pogba this summer, questions remain over the future of a number of first-team players.

Spanish duo Juan Mata and Ander Herrera are both out of contract at the end of the season, while David de Gea is yet to commit to a new long-term deal.

However, Solskjaer believes talks will progress quickly now his own future is secure at Old Trafford.

“At least now players that are being offered contracts, they know who their manager is going to be,” he said.

“I know that I’m staying so it’s not just my advice anymore, it’s my wishes that we are working with.”
