Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says midfielder Paul Pogba is looking forward to the new season, as the Frenchman edges closer to a return from holiday.

Our no.6 is currently enjoying a summer break following his participation at Euro 2020 and is expected to return soon, with the start of the Premier League season approaching on 14 August.

Ole is currently working with a youthful squad during our pre-season campaign and he confirmed after the friendly at QPR that more of our international players will return in the next 10 days.

During a press conference with journalists following the six-goal match in West London, Solskjaer was asked about Pogba and revealed talks are ongoing regarding his contract. 

The manager also stated the former Academy graduate is looking forward to the new campaign.

“There's always speculation about Paul and clubs being interested, and we've seen Paul at his best,” said the boss.

“Paul knows what we feel about it and I've enjoyed my time working with him and hopefully we can work together. The talks between the club and Paul's representatives, I'm not in the detail of every single one of them. I've got nothing to say about that. Let's see what happens.” 

Continuing, Ole said: “The talks are ongoing between Paul's representatives and the club representatives. All the dialogue I've had with Paul is he's looking forward to the season.”

United’s attention has now turned to the third friendly of the summer, against Brentford at Old Trafford on Wednesday. Tickets for that match are available to buy.
