PAUL POGBA wants to stay and “win prizes” at Manchester United despite continuous links with a move away, according to the star’s agent.
Real Madrid and Juventus have both been linked with the French World Cup-winning midfielder for months.
And fresh speculation has recently mounted that he will attempt to force a transfer out of Old Trafford next month.
However, Pogba’s representative Mino Raiola has eased fears of an exit and insisted his client will not get “angry” with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer due to the respect he has for the Red Devils boss.
Speaking on the future of United’s club-record £89m signing, the super-agent confirmed Madrid tried to sign him last summer but vowed the 26-year-old would not push for a move.
Raiola told The Telegraph: “I think that Paul really went home. Paul could have gone elsewhere. But he really chose with his heart, to go home.
“Paul is a very, very nice person. For example, he’s not able to be angry at Ole because Ole treated him so good when Ole was an older player and Paul was a younger player and the respect and the love that he received from Ole means he cannot get angry at Ole.”
EXCLUSIVE by Daniel Cutts: OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER arrived Carrington for Manchester United's Christmas lunch where he will help serve the food in a bid to spread festive cheer among his squad.
The Norwegian and the rest of the team turned up in their swanky motors ahead of the do Solskjaer told the players they must attend.
Solskjaer has told the squad he expects them to attend which will be different to last year under Jose Mourinho.
Last season the players arrived in drips and drabs and the Special One stayed in his office for most of the time in what was a sombre affair.
It was described as the worst Xmas lunch at United for a couple of decades by people who could be bothered to attend.
There was a notable dip in the mood last season and Solskjaer is keen to avoid that this time around.
In years gone past, the youth team would perform a pantomime while Sir Alex Ferguson was once hit in the face with a mince pie as part of the light-hearted festive fun.
FORMER Manchester United graduate Callum Whelan has heaped praise on the academy at Old Trafford and says Paul Pogba is just too good to keep up with.
The 21-year-old said: “The standard's a joke. For me it's the top standard.
“When Pogba came, he was the standout, where I look back and thought, that's not even the standard above.
“I don't know if you can get to that standard.”
ARSENAL starlet Gabriel Martinelli has revealed that training with Manchester United has had a positive impact on his football.
The Brazilian also hailed Paul Pogba for making him feel comfortable during that time.
He told DAZN: ''There was a project between Ituano and Manchester United, and they always took a player. And I always came for these trips.
''I could neither speak English nor French, but he [Pogba] said tudo bem and took the picture with me nicely, he was super humble.
''Those training days were super important for me to adapt to the style of play, the players and how fast the game is here''.
