Solskjaer Reacts To Pogba Meeting With Zidane

After Paul Pogba was pictured with Zinedine Zidane during the latest international break, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reacted to their meeting, amid speculation Real Madrid still want to sign the Frenchman.

Reports: Man Utd Want Six New Signings In Squad Overhaul

With Pogba in Dubai recovering from an ankle injury, and Zidane recently attending a conference in the Middle East, the pair were pictured in conversation on a beach during the latest international break.

The photo has, perhaps unsurprisingly, fuelled transfer talk, especially considering the 26-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a switch to Los Blancos, but United boss Solskjaer has played down rumours that the club's record signing is on his way out of Old Trafford.

"Here we go with the picture! I've not heard Paul Pogba say he doesn't want to be here. Paul wants to stay here and play well," he said, according to The Independent.

"Paul is part of our plan going forward and Paul knows that. I've spoken to him so many times.

"He's been playing through the pain barrier and he's been criticised left, right and centre, but when he came back for Rochdale, Arsenal, he could easily have opted to not try to play them, but he wanted to play.

"He wanted to try to get back, it was too painful so he had that scan, but he's on the way back. He's mending, he's recovering.

"He's been on a few days off working but he's away from here, and then there's a picture. When you're at Man United, you do get pictures, speculation; I don't have any problem with that at all."
