Manchester United go for potential but can Solskjær nurture it? | Paul Doyle

And there are few better clubs to realise your potential at than United, regardless of the problems they've had since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013.

"Everyone within the club from the manager to the owner knows Paul's wishes", he told The Times.

"It is such a great feeling to sign for this football club", Tielemans said after it was confirmed that he will rejoin Leicester.

Paul Pogba has had a really torrid time at Old Trafford ever since his return back to England and now reports are ripe that Juventus want to bring him back for the upcoming season.

The Red Devils get started in Australia with two matches against local side Perth Glory before a fixture against Yorkshire rivals Leeds United.

But Pogba will be told to put in a written transfer request which endorses the fact to the United fans that the player no longer wants to play for them.

The World Cup victor has failed to live up to his record €105 million price tag since returning to the club, showing only brief flashes of his ability.


Amid all the negative press around Manchester United at the moment, one positive has been the £50m signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.

Sporting's Bruno Fernandes is also on Solskjaer's radar, while the Reds have been linked with the likes of Radja Nainggolan and Real Madrid's Isco and Gareth Bale - the latter two as part of a proposed swap with Pogba.

Internationally, Tielemans has been capped by the Red Devils 23 times and was a member of the Belgium squad that finished third in last summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

It remains to be seen whether United entertain offers for Pogba, or whether manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sticks to the club's current stance that he is not for sale. We're in the process of that.

"I can't wait to get going and integrated into the squad".

Defender Tuanzebe, 21, has committed until 2022, also with the option of a further year, after spending last season on loan at Championship play-off winners Aston Villa.
