Solskjaer ‘offers Paul Pogba captaincy at Manchester United’ in bid to convince him to stay and shun Real Madrid move
Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is offering Paul Pogba the captaincy in a bid to convince the midfielder to stay at Old Trafford and shun Real Madrid move.
The French midfielder, 26, has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Man United this summer, with Real Madrid a likely destination.
United will be without a captain from the end of next month when Antonio Valencia leaves the club. His deputy, 33-year-old Ashley Young is likely to play a reduced role next term with United targeting a new right-back this summer.
According to ESPN, Solskjaer is willing to offer the 26-year-old the armband in a bid to keep him at the club ahead of a squad overhaul this summer.
