Wenger tells Solskjaer on what to do about Pogba
Arsene Wenger, a former Arsenal manager, has told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he needs to convince Paul Pogba that he will only earn his move to another club, by coming up with the goods at Old Trafford.
At present Pogba’s future is up in the air, after his agent Mino Raiola this week claimed the midfielder “needs a new team, a change of air”.
Pogba’s agent clarified that his exit in January would be the “best solution”, claiming his client is unhappy in Manchester.
The 27-year-old is keen on a “dream” move to Real Madrid, or a return to former club Juventus.
“I believe you have to explain to a player that no matter what his future plan is, his interest and his job is to perform at the present [club],” Wenger told ESPN’s Caught Offside podcast.
“It’s the best way to prepare your future, to play well in the present.”
