However, the cut of Pogba’s £290,000-a-week in wages could lend itself nicely to Solskjaer, who can use the money to secure a new signing in the transfer window.
Regardless of the fact Pogba’s departure is hogging all the headlines, Solskjaer insists he does not want to ‘waste energy’ speaking about Raiola’s comments and the future of the France star.
He said: ‘The [Manchester United] squad is fine. They’re a team and they stick together.
‘As soon as Paul’s agent realises this is a team sport and we work together, the better. That’s probably maybe the last thing I’ll say about that. I don’t want to spend energy on that.’
