Paul Pogba focused on Manchester United despite Real Madrid 'campaign' - Solskjaer

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Paul Pogba has not had his head turned by a ‘campaign’ for Real Madrid to sign him.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to the outgoing European champions this summer, most strongly by the press in both Spain and France.

“There might be a campaign, there might be press, you never know what there is, but in my talks with Paul he's always been positive,” Solskjaer said, in quotes cited by ESPN.

“I don't see a difference in him when I chat to him. He's focused on performing and he's a proud player. He always gives his best.”

Pogba is said to have a strong desire to win the Ballon d’Or and this would be out of his reach whilst still playing at Old Trafford.

The midfielder returned to United in the summer of 2016 from Juventus in a €95m deal, which was then a world record.
