Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brushed off Paul Pogba’s latest comments that it would be ‘a dream’ to play for Real Madrid.
United’s record £89million signing has been persistently linked with a move to the Bernabeu where his French compatriot Zinedine Zidane is in charge.

‘Paul’s our player,’ said the United boss. ‘He’s going to be here for another two years and I’m sure he’s focussed on doing his best for us.
‘We want to see the best for Paul and I’m sure in the next couple of years we’ll get the best out of him.’
