Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is certain that star player Paul Pogba will stay at the club beyond this summer despite the numerous transfer rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

Solskjaer was asked about Paul Pogba for the umpteenth time during his post-match press conference after the International Champions Cup (ICC) clash with Italian Serie A giants AC Milan on Saturday night.

Manchester United beat Milan on penalties after both sides had shared a four-goal salvo at the end of regulation time.

After the game, Solskjaer told reporters that Pogba will be a Manchester United player when the new season starts later this week before adding that the French World Cup winner missed the AC Milan game as a precaution.

He confirmed that Pogba was not injured and that he felt a pain in his back and that was the reason behind his no-show for the preseason clash with the Rossoneri.

Pogba made it clear that he wants to leave the Old Trafford outfit for greener pastures during an Adidas event held in the Japanese city of Tokyo.

The 26-year-old has two years left on his current deal with Manchester United who has the option of a third year.
