Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally taken his time to comment on Paul Pogba’s claims having shown interest in joining Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid.
Just before the start of this season, the Frenchman was in the middle of a controversy over renewal of his contract at the Old Trafford club.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has been on the trail of the midfielder and Pogba was recently quoted to have stated that it would be a ‘dream' to play for the reigning Spanish champions.
The comment has reignited speculations about the player’s future, but United manager Solskjaer rubbished the claims saying the former Juventus star is still a Man Utd player.
The tactician said during a press conference as quoted by Daily Mail:
"Paul's our player, he's going to be here for another two years, and I'm sure he's focused 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."
Meanwhile, the player is also having the backing of his team-mates at Old Trafford club.
The 27-year-old also stated that he is doing everything possible to take the Red Devils to the next level, but he dreams of playing for Real Madrid in the near future.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has always hoped for the player to move away from the English club especially when the star admitted he wants a new challenge.
Zinedine Zidane would love to work with the £89million United No.6 at the Bernabeu. After a season disrupted by injuries and coronavirus, he stayed put this summer.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Jesse Lingard has emerged a shock transfer target for top Portuguese side FC Porto as the Man United star is seeking for a season-long loan move this summer.
The 27-year-old has fallen out of favour in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and the forward is looking to revive his career elsewhere.
The Portuguese transfer window is still open until October 25, and the Primeira Liga champions are keen on landing the Englishman.
