Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes there could be campaign in Spain to get Paul Pogba to Real Madrid

Last month, the France midfielder admitted it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Real, who are managed by countryman Zinedine Zidane.

And Solskjaer has not noticed a chance in Pogba’s demeanour despite increased transfer interest from La Liga giants Real.

“There might be a campaign, there might be press,” the Norwegian said. “You never know what there is, but in my talks with Paul he’s always been positive here.

“I don’t see a difference in him when I chat to him.

“So, he’s focused on performing and he’s a proud player, who always gives his best.

“I thought first-half (in Wednesday’s 1-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona), yeah, we speak about Fred and Scott (McTominay), but I thought Paul made us play, settled us down a bit in the first-half especially.

“We just fell away towards the end. But the effort that he put in physically was tremendous.”

Pogba has not scored or assisted a goal in his past six games.

But Solskjaer is not worried by his star man’s form.
