Solskjaer optimistic De Gea won't run contract down

Paul Pogba will head to Australia with his United team-mates

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played down talk Paul Pogba is unhappy at the club, hinting that the media may have an agenda against the star midfielder.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is employing Sir Alex Ferguson's old tactics at Manchester United, says James Cooper.

With speculation of a transfer growing, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has insisted his client has "done nothing wrong" when he publicly revealed his desire for a new challenge away from the Theatre of Dreams last month. "It's business as usual", the Norwegian is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"As far as I'm aware we don't have any bids for any of our players". There is an agenda against Paul but he is a top, top bloke.

"He's a great great professional and has a heart of gold".

"I don't think Alexis's injury was too bad", Solskjaer said in a press conference in Perth, where United have started their pre-season tour of Australia. He has never put himself out of the team. "But at the moment Pogba and Lukaku and the rest of them remain here in Perth as Manchester United players". I have spoken to Pogba and spoken to Romelu.

While Bumrah started the show by dismissing Martin Guptill for 1, Yuzvendra Chahal snared the all-important wicket of Williamson. That was one delivery that Taylor initially found hard to get away as the dot ball count increased with each over.

Juventus can not afford to meet United's valuation this year with the club still paying off Cristiano Ronaldo's huge contract worth £300m in wages over four years, say The Sun.

"So my decision [to sign the new contract] wasn't a hard decision because I don't feel like we've done that yet. You have to have the right players at the right price and if you look at the squad we've got now there are so many good players".

The Sun reports that, privately, Solskjaer, who is described as "desperate" in the story, will ask Pogba to stay at Old Trafford for one more year and help drive the rebuilding project.

Manchester United have never been a selling club and have never given in to pressure.

Some players will leave before the summer is out but Solskjaer has yet to show the ruthless edge he promised after United tailed off so dramatically towards the end of the season.

United will play Perth Glory at Optus Stadium on Saturday, before facing Leeds United four days later. They're fantastic players, there's loads of players here that I know are going to be successful at this club.
