- Paul Pogba will remain at Manchester United beyond January transfer window
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the club has no reason of letting the Frenchman leave soon
- The Frenchman has admitted that he wants to leave the club for Real Madrid
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Paul Pogba will not be leaving the club when the winter transfer window opens next month.
The Frenchman has not featured for the Red Devils since September after sustaining an ankle injury in their draw against Arsenal.
Pogba was expected back earlier this month but his illness relapsed and that extended his stay outside off the pitch.
The Russia 2018 World Cup winner will not rule out a chance to seek fresh challenge with Real, but the plan failed to pull through.
Solskjaer insisted on Friday told Independent UK: "He’s not getting sold in January. He’s training, but he’s not been training with us for long. He’s training and that’s a step forward for us.
"[The ankle injury] was something that really needed sorting but I don’t think I should give you all the medical information.

"He’s now feeling good and getting better, it’s worked. When he comes back and plays well, with a smile on his face and does what he did a year ago when I came here.
"Paul has been fantastic and we’ve got one of the best players in the world when he plays. Let’s see how he feels, I’m not going to push him. We need him to be 100% fit.”
