Ole Gunnar Solskjaer updates on Pogba’s future after fifth assist in two games

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on the future of French midfielder Paul Pogba after his impressive start to the new season.

The Manchester United midfielder has been the subject of interest from Paris Saint-Germain this summer with his United contract set to expire in the summer of 2022.

Reports suggest that the Red Devils offered the World Cup winner a new deal towards the end of last season but he is yet to respond to the offer.

United have begun the new Premier League season with a win and a draw from their opening two matches, including a 5-1 home win over Leeds United.

Solskjaer was asked after United's 1-1 draw at Southampton on Sunday whether Pogba's five assists in the opening two matches underlined the importance of securing his future.

"That's going to be the question every week now until he does," explained Solskjaer.

"As I've said all the time, Paul is a top player and the talks between the club and his representatives, which I am not involved in, continue.

"But he knows how much I care about him and we want him to play well."

Solskjaer also confirmed he had no worries over the Frenchman's attitude despite his future remaining up in the air.

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have been the main side linked with Pogba if he were to leave United and are reportedly ready to sign him on a free next summer.

United had been keen not to lose Pogba on a free and were believed to be ready to sell him this summer to PSG for £50million but this move was put on ice as PSG signed Lionel Messi.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out a move for the player, however, but has also not confirmed that PSG will make an approach for Pogba.

The 28-year-old has been in impressive form so far this season for United as he assisted four of their five goals in their opening day thrashing of Leeds.

He then provided the assist for Mason Greenwood to equalise in the 1-1 draw away to Southampton on Sunday.

This means Pogba has already racked up a quarter of the number of assists required to equal the Premier League record for most in a season with 36 matches left to play.

Thierry Henry has held the record for 18 years after providing 20 assists for Arsenal during the 2002/03 season.
