Ole Gunnar Solskjaer very much interested in building his team around Paul Pogba

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he still hopes to build his Manchester United team around Paul Pogba – despite the France midfielder admitting he wants a “new challenge”.

In August last year, Solskjaer, then Molde manager, talking ahead of a Europa League qualifier against Hibernian, said he wanted United to keep Pogba – who at the time had asked to leave, amid interest from Barcelona – and make him the focal point of the team.

Eleven months on, Solskjaer is in the hot seat at Old Trafford and has to make a decision on Pogba’s United future after public admissions from the midfielder and his agent, Mino Raiola, that he wants to leave – with Real Madrid and Juventus keen to sign the 26-year-old.

Asked if he still believes Pogba is the man to get United back to the top, Solskjaer said:

Paul is a fantastic player, a fantastic human being and has always been a great professional.

I’ve had a great relationship with him, I had him in the reserves a few years back.

And I said [previously] , ‘if he’s in your squad, you’d build your team around him’, and I haven’t changed that much since then, so I would say the same now.
