Pogba Unaffected By Real Madrid Transfer Talks


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has leapt to the defence of star player Paul Pogba who has endured a poor run of form in the past few weeks.

While speaking ahead of his side’s home game with West Ham United in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told reporters that Paul Pogba has not been affected by talks of a possible transfer to Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid.

French World Cup winner Pogba stoked the flame of a possible Real Madrid transfer when he revealed in a recent interview that it would be a dream to play for the reigning European champions.

He also talked about how he idolised Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane while he was growing up.

Zidane was recently named the Real Madrid manager just eight months after he resigned from the same job.

The French football legend had called it quit as the Real Madrid manager last summer despite leading the Los Merengues to a third successive Champions League title with a 3-1 win over Liverpool in their final clash.

Paul Pogba has been heavily linked with Real Madrid after his admission as stated above but Solskjaer believes that the Frenchman has not been affected by those transfer talks.

He scored nine goals in the first three months under Solskjaer who took over at Manchester United in December but has failed to find the back of the net for almost two months.
