Solskjaer is sure that Pogba will stay, but only if United wins the trophies

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident that Paul Pogba will stay at the club, but only if they win trophies.

Pogba has admitted in the past that he would love a new challenge elsewhere, and only recently has his agent Mino Raiola said he has “finished” at the club.

Speaking ahead of the quarter-final clash of United’s Carabao Cup against Everton on Wednesday night, Solskjaer said the club could play a role in convincing the Frenchman to stay.

“At Man United there is always a requirement to win trophies and the more you win trophies, the more players will want to play for us, and then there is a higher standard that you have to set yourself,” Solskjaer told ESPN.

“It’s a demand for the players, it’s a challenge for the players that we want them to get better and better. Paul has been here for a while and of course he wants to win more trophies.

“It’s up to us to win trophies, and then to see who will be part of the team going forward.”

Solskjaer is confident the midfielder will do his best despite talks about his immediate future.

“He has a very, very good attitude towards training and his football,” Solskjaer added.

“He loves football and is ambitious and wants to succeed like most others – most of the others on the team. We’re not all the same, but I’d say this team impressed me with its attitude, the spirit and the way they work in their business.”

Real Madrid and Juventus are two sides that love the 27-year-old, although PSG has also been declared a possible destination.
