The message was clear from Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of their opening pre-season game in Australia this weekend.

Solskjaer said United do not have to sell anyone this summer.

Pogba has spoken of his desire for a "new challenge", while his agent, Mino Raiola, said Solskjaer and the club are aware the French midfielder wants to leave.

Speaking at a press conference in Perth ahead of Saturday's pre-season opener against Perth Glory 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’s business as usual. When you’re Man United, you expect all these things to pop up in the summer.

"As far as I am aware and up to now, we don’t have any bids for any of our players. We are Man United, we don’t have to sell players."

Solskjaer added: "What I have to say about Paul, for example, it looks like it's gonna be a media, I don't wanna call it... but it's an agenda against Paul. He's a top, top bloke. He's a great, great professional, he's never been any problems, he's got a heart of gold.

"Agents talk all the time. Paul is a top bloke, a great professional. He has never put himself out of the team. He has always wanted to play and he always gives his best."
