Solskjaer defends Pogba, says Man United don’t need to sell

"Paul Pogba had played a lot more games, more opportunities than me when I was at Man United".

And so Daniel James, the Wales winger signed from Swansea City this summer, had to sing "Follow Me" by Uncle Kracker in front of the rest of the squad.

However, Pogba had a public falling out with Jose Mourinho last season.

McTominay was the star of the show - the Scotland worldwide apparently has quite the voice.

This is it. This is the Inter blitz we've been promised, as Piero Ausilio, the club's director of football, has travelled to London to hold talks with Manchester United for Romelu Lukaku. I don't want to call it... but it's an agenda against Paul.

"For example Jesse and Paul walking around - it's been portrayed as a fight between the two boys".

"Paul's never put himself out of the team, always given his best and I can't report anything other than that agents talk all the time".


"I'm positive, of course with David I've said many times how lucky I am and happy we are to have him in goal". "He is got a heart of gold", he added.

"I know you're here to sell papers and sell stories but that's nothing, no problems between the boys at all. Pre-season has been very good so far".

He now has one year left on his contract at Stoke but Pro Soccer Talk understands that QPR are waiting for Cameron's situation at Stoke to be sorted out before making their move.

De Gea's contract expires in 2020 and prolonged negotiations have failed to yield an agreement, posing the risk United could lose one of their most valuable assets for free, but Solskjaer is not resigned to losing the 28-year-old.

"I think for him it was amusing watching the press conference, it started with two questions about Australia and he thought he was going to be in for a gentle ride and then the bounces started coming about how he turns things around and what he can do this season".

"I've not spoken to the manager about it", he said.

Though a fan favourite in his playing days, there will be pressure on former striker Solskjaer to achieve early results after failing to secure Champions League qualification last term.
