Solskjaer makes last effort to keep Pogba at Old Trafford

Paul Pogba seems determined to leave Manchester United this summer, but Red Devils' coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will make one more try to keep the Frenchman around next season.

In a report published by ESPN, the Norwegian boss is keen on building his team around Pogba next season, despite all the late criticism the player has earned for his "lack of commitment" to the club. In order to see Pogba playing for the Red Devils next season, Solskjaer would be willing to give Pogba the captain's armband.

A shirtless Pogba listens to insults from fans moments after losing the final game of the season against Cardiff at Old Trafford.

The player became the team's top scorer in the recently concluded 2018-19 season, but that did not help him escape the criticism from fans and experts, who believe that he had a direct influence in Jose Mourinho's sacking, while also adding his constant social media posts as a source for complaint by the team's supporters.

Manchester United missed out on UEFA Champions League games for next season after finishing sixth in the EPL race this year, and Solskjaer wants to keep most of the team's best players around, which include Pogba. With former captain Antonio Valencia set to leave the club, the captain's armband is up for grabs, but it will be up to Pogba to decide if he wants to wear it again.
