Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been urged to build his team around Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba revealed recently he wants a new challenge amid reports linking him with Real Madrid and Juventus but Danny Higginbotham believes if Pogba is happy, he is the kind of player Solskjaer can build his team around.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has also been linked with a move away from the club this summer but Higginbotham wants United to do everything to keep the goalkeeper at the club.

After finishing 32 points behind of champions Manchester City in the Premier League, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are under pressure to turn the club’s fortunes around.

“I think with De Gea, they need to be doing everything to try to keep him at the club,” Higginbotham told Sky Sports.

“Lukaku, I think from Solskjaer’s perspective he’ll look at it and think ‘where does he fit into the system that I want to play?’

“Paul Pogba, I know a lot of people have given him a lot of negativity during the season and after what he came out and said last weekend but if you can get him to stay at Manchester United and be happy, he would be the type of player I would build the team around.

“But you have to have the players around him to allow him to go and express himself.”
