Solskjaer: Pogba will be at Manchester United for another two years

French World Cup victor Paul Pogba looks to be staying at Old Trafford despite interest from Real Madrid, as Manchester United triggered a one-year contract extension for the player whose deal was set to expire next summer.

The Premier League transfer deadline expired on Monday, October 5 but clubs in the division can still sign players from the lower leagues of English football until the end of Friday, October 15.

The comment raised more questions over his future at Old Trafford, but at least United have the reassurance of knowing their investment in the 27-year-old midfielder is protected.

"Paul's our player", Solskjaer told the press prior Manchester United's game against Newcastle on Sunday.

'We want to see the best of Paul and I'm sure in the next couple of years we'll get the best out of him'. He has 25 goals in 111 appearances since returning to Manchester United that year.

Pogba rejoined United from Juventus in a then world-record deal in 2016, but has been hampered by injuries and inconsistent form for much of his second spell in the Premier League.

In 72 career global appearances, Pogba has notched 10 goals, including one score in France's 4-2 victory over Croatia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.
