Manchester United set to sell Pogba and Lukaku for £200 million

Tuesday, 30 Apr, 2019

United are still contending for a Champions League qualification position despite being three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, who they host at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are only three points off the pace, with those around them also struggling to get over the line, but have just two games remaining in their 2018-19 campaign.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he thinks Paul Pogba will still be at the club next season - but can not guarantee it.

"You can't guarantee anything in football but yes I think Paul is going to be here", said Solskjaer.

"I speak to the players all the time; they know my expectations and standards".

As an £89 million asset at Old Trafford and supposed club talisman, the 26-year-old has had to get used to operating under the brightest of spotlights. Really good. Then for some reason, the second half we didn't come out and play as we did in the first half.

"David knows he could have done better with the goal, there's no reason to hide that, but there's no chance any of us will point fingers because he's saved us so many times". "We are all in this together".

As they have with the majority of their recent challenges, they rose to it with consummate ease, scoring within 15 seconds of kick-off and scoring a further four to batter the league's bottom team. The 22-year-old had failed a fitness test ahead of Wednesday's 0-2 defeat.

"You can't say that we haven't invested enough money. We are trying to recover Kante but I am not sure at the moment". We have to do it our own way.

The former England worldwide added that, regardless of whether or not United qualify for next season's Champions League, having the right players at the club next season will be crucial. Maybe some of them could not have handled the Sir Alex way of managing but that doesn't matter.
