Pogba integral part of Man U rebuild

Sports | Reuters 18 Jul 2019

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to build his team around midfielder Paul Pogba despite media speculation linking the French World Cup winner with a move away from Old Trafford ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

Pogba's agent said the 26-year-old intends to leave, while the player said in June he could seek a new challenge elsewhere amid reports linking him to Juventus and Real Madrid.

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

Pogba, who joined United from Juventus in 2016 for a then-world record fee of 89.3 million (HK$866 million), has blown hot and cold in his second stint at the club.

"We know Paul has been criticized by a few but he's loved by loads more," Solskjaer added.
