Paul Pogba will be at Manchester United next season Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says.
The 26-year-old has featured just eight times for United this season and has not played since 26 December after undergoing surgery for a persistent ankle injury.
He has not started a game for United since the 1-1 Premier League draw against Arsenal on 30 September.
Speculation linking the World Cup winner with a transfer to either Juventus or Real Madrid has refused to go away with the Frenchman’s agent, Mino Raiola also fueling talk of a summer exit.
But following United’s 5-0 thrashing of LASK in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie in Austria, Solsjkaer told journalists he “expects” Pogba to still be at the club next season in response to a question about the midfielder’s future.
“Paul’s our player. He has two years left on his contract,” Solsjkaer said.
Pogba is contracted to the club until the summer of 2021 and United also have the option of triggering a one-year extension in his current contract.
“You can expect Paul to be here [next season], yeah,” added Solskjaer.
