Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up about the future of Paul Pogba.

Following Manchester United‘s arrival in Perth, Australia, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held his first press conference of the pre-season on Wednesday.

With a host of journalists attending the conference, it was only going to be a matter of time before questions regarding the future of team talisman Paul Pogba came up.

As expected, Ole was enquired about the same, and he responded by addressing the speculation surrounding a number of his star players.

“Well, there has been loads of talks and speculation about many of our players,” said Solskjaer (via M.E.N.). “For me, it is business as usual. When you are at Man United, you expect these things to pop up in the summer.

“I have spoken to Pogba, Lukaku, Rashford, Jesse, and as far as I’m aware we don’t have any bids for any of our players. We do not have to sell players.”

Then speaking about Pogba’s attitude thus far in training, he added: “Paul, it looks like it is going to be media. He is a top professional, there have never been any problems. We have a few years left of his contract and for me he has been fantastic.”

Lastly, Solskjaer also addressed rumours of a rift between Pogba and Lingard that emerged due to the training video footage, by stating: “Jesse and Pogba walking around, portrayed as fight between the two boys, but that is nothing. No problems whatsoever.”
