Man Utd boss Solskjaer upbeat over Alexis fitness

Paul Pogba will head to Australia with his United team-mates

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has moved to hose down speculation that Paul Pogba is unhappy and set to leave the club, declaring the media have an "agenda" against the French World Cup victor.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the 26-year-old Leicester City defender to become the new leader of his revamped side and United will back him with a lucrative contract offer.

Pogba's manager has already publicly stated that the French World Cup victor wants to leave Manchester United, with Juventus and Real Madrid the two clubs he has been linked to.

Asked about the France worldwide, Solskjaer said: "There has been loads of talk and speculation, of course, about all our players or many of our players, both ins and outs". "For me, it is business as usual".

The Italian super agent has been unhappy about some of the criticism the Frenchman has received and believes Manchester United have done little to shield the player.

"He's a top, top bloke".

"Paul is a great great professional, he has a heart of gold".

"I'm positive. Of course with David I've said many times how lucky I am and happy we are to have him in goal". He's a great professional. When the league starts I'm sure we'll have a good team, a Manchester United team that is going to challenge.

Like the previous oldest last-four debutante, Roberta Vinci at the 2015 US Open, she will face Serena Williams at this stage. Star tennis player Serena Williams was fined Monday by the All England Club for damaging a court during practice.

"I think Manchester United are expecting those bids to come in, but are under no pressure to get rid of either player, and I think they're also looking to do more in the market certainly in relation to a centre-back and maybe another midfielder and perhaps a striker. That's all I can say about this matter", he said. "Paul has never been a concern for me".

"The player has done nothing wrong", Raiola told Talksport.

Solskjaer's squad is now lacking in midfield, though the Norwegian should consider the sale of Pogba should the right bid come in.

Manchester United have never been a selling club and have never given in to pressure. "So we hope he will stay here for many years", Solskjaer added.

United's record signing wants out of Old Trafford, and the constant media attention and uncertainty regarding his future could prove a disruptive influence on the club's pre-season plans.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first preseason as Man United boss kicks off on Saturday the 13 of July against Perth Glory.

Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, said, "everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on".
