According to reports, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has rejected a mouth-watering £350k per week deal that will see him become top earner at Manchester United.

Pogba is believed to be in favour of a move to Paris Saint-Germain and isn’t interested in remaining at Old Trafford.

Speaking after the defeat to QPR, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he’s keen to keep Pogba but he also hinted that the Frenchman’s future isn’t up to him.

Asked if Pogba has rejected a contract – and whether United will therefore need to sell him – Solskjaer replied: “There’s always speculations about Paul.

“The talks between the club and Paul’s representatives, I’m not in the detail of every single one of them so I’ve got nothing to say really about that.”

Probed further on PSG’s interest, Solskjaer continued: “There’s always speculation about Paul and there’s always clubs being interested.

“Of course, we’ve seen Paul at his best and Paul knows what we feel about it. And of course I’ve enjoyed my time working with him and hopefully we can work together.”

Asked if there is a possibility that Pogba could leave Old Trafford on a free transfer for a second time, Solskjaer responded: “That’s speculation again. Let’s see what happens.”
