Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not turn his back on Paul Pogba should he decide to run down his contract this season.
The Mirror reports that Pogba will not be frozen out at Old Trafford by Solskjaer despite his refusal to extend his contract.
Pogba is set to leave United on a Bosman for the second time when his contract expires in June.
The France midfielder has turned down United’s offer to discuss new terms and saw a potential move to Paris St Germain fail to materialise.
But Solskjaer insists Pogba remains central to his plans for the new campaign as he bids to land United’s first title since 2013.
Pogba played the second half of Saturday’s 4-0 friendly win over Everton at Old Trafford in his first pre-season appearance and Solskjaer has pencilled him in for their opener against Leeds this Saturday.
