Paul Pogba would want to finish his career at Manchester United without regrets, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted as questions continues to be asked of the midfielder’s future.
The Frenchman remains Manchester United’s record signing but has struggled to produce the levels that have been expected of him, given his £100million price-tag.
And while the midfielder’s quality cannot be questioned, he continues to be linked with a move away from the club with Pogba admitting last year that it was maybe time for a ‘new challenge’.
However, Solskjaer is keen to keep hold of his best players and replicate the success he achieved as a United player – and Pogba remains very much a part of his plans.
‘I don’t think you can ever question Paul’s professionalism. He is a very, very professional boy and he lives his life the right way,’ he said.
‘He wants to be the best he can be. He knows he’s a special talent and he doesn’t want to, in five or 10 years’ time, look back and think “I didn’t make the most of it.”
‘He is already a World Cup winner, he has won things with Juventus and us so I’m not surprised by his enthusiasm and dedication to us.
Pogba has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Juventus in the past year with Zinedine Zidane keen to link up with his compatriot.
A return to Turin has also been mooted but the coronavirus pandemic has left clubs rethinking their approaches to transfers.
Pogba has been restricted to just 10 appearances this season, where he has provided three assists due to an ankle injury.
