Despite his recent impressive displays, it looks like not much has changed regarding Paul Pogba’s situation at Manchester United.

After Mino Raiola’s bombshell “it’s over” comment about a month ago before Manchester United’s doomed match against RB Leipzig in the Champions League, the French international has been in excellent form and was instrumental in their win against Aston Villa, which secured them the second spot in the Premier League, level on points with Liverpool.

Despite Pogba’s impressive displays in United’s incredible unbeaten run, reports from The Mirror claim, that the World Cup winner is reluctant to sign any new contract with the club and Solskjaer seems to be aware of the situation, with plans of selling the midfielder in the next summer window already in place.

In the month of October, rumours lingered on about Pogba making an exit, but United managed to tie down the Frenchman to the club till 2022 by triggering a one-year extension clause in his contract.

But in face of recent events involving Pogba being unhappy along with his agent Mino Raiola linking him with a return to Juventus, it was time the club tried to recoup some of the £89 million that they paid for him.

Also news from various media sources state that a potential swap deal involving either Paolo Dybala or Cristiano Ronaldo could also be on the cards as United prepare for the departure of their star midfielder.

Even though Juventus looks the most likely destination for the Frenchman considering Raiola’s recent comments, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly also shown interest in the World Cup winner.

Solskjaer in a recent interview has spoken about Paul Pogba’s situation at the club, as reported by the Daily Mail:

"‘Paul has been here now for a while and, of course, he wants to win more trophies. He’s got a very, very good attitude to training and playing football.‘He loves football, he’s ambitious, he wants to have success – like most of the others that are in the squad. We’re not all the same.’"

Solskjaer has acknowledged Pogba’s efforts in recent games and states that his urge to win trophies has never been a question. But despite his impressive performances, it appears to be clear that the club and the player will part ways at the end of the season.

With Bruno Fernandes now taking charge of United’s midfield, Solskjaer might very well be planning to bring in some new talents to provide cover for the Portuguese with the transfer fee they receive for Pogba.
