Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will stay at the club for the next two years according to his manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils boss made this known in his pre-match press conference for the away trip to Newcastle United on Saturday night.

Solskjaer said Pogba is a Manchester United player and that he’ll be at the club for the next two years.

The club has activated the one-year option in his contract to take it until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The Frenchman would have been eligible to start speaking with foreign clubs as from the start of next year if the one-year option was not triggered.

He had less than a year on his Manchester United deal before the decision to trigger the one-year option was made.

Pogba is in his second spell at Manchester United whom he signed for in a then world-record fee of £89m in 2016.

He has scored 25 goals in 111 appearances for his team since his return from Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

During his time in Turin, the French midfielder scored 28 goals in 124 appearances.

He has 10 goals in 74 France games including one of the goals in the 4-2 victory over Croatia as the French team secured a second title at the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament.
