Solskjaer: Pogba still focused as Real Madrid reports swirl

Pogba says Barcelona will be mindful of United's last-16 comeback against PSG

But Pogba has a contract at Old Trafford until 2022, and Solskjaer said the 26-year-old had not had his head turned.

He is without another two players against West Ham on Saturday, with Red Devils defensive pair Ashley Young and Luke Shaw both suspended for the game, one for a sending off against Wolves last time out, and the latter for accumulating 10 bookings.

The United manager confirmed yesterday that, as expected, club captain Antonio Valencia would be leaving upon the expiration of his contract this summer.

He added: "I think his most positive feature is the way he is close to the players and he understands them very well too because he had a long career as a player himself and he played a long time here at this club too".

However, Solskjaer says talks between Herrera and the Red Devils are still on-going, while also confirming the midfielder's absence through injury.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss internal deliberations. He's wonderful person." But, he added, "Frankly, there's only one person that's running it. "You know it.

Zinedine Zidane's return to the Bernabeu helm has fuelled talk, while the wheels appear to be in motion with the kind of campaign often associated with the Champions League holders when they target a player.

"I don't see a difference in him when I chat to him".

"We've been fantastic but lately we haven't been ruthless or clinical enough in front of goal", Solskjaer said.

Solskjaer said he only wanted players who were ready to take on that challenge, although he stopped short of suggesting that there would be a summer clearout. He's focused on performing and he's a proud player.

"After 15 minutes [against Barcelona in the 1-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg loss on Wednesday], yeah we can speak about Fred and Scott [McTominay], but I thought Paul made us play".

United, lying sixth with 61 points after a poor run of results, are locked in a battle for third with Chelsea (66 points), Tottenham Hotspur (64) and Arsenal (63). "He always gives his best".

Pogba scored four goals and assisted three more in Solskjaer's first three games as manager, clearly boosted by a change in manager with the pair having worked together before in the club's youth system.

"He had his highest ever output physically on so he's never ran as much in a Man United shirt as Wednesday night".

"The effort and attitude is there".
