L'Equipe: Raphael Varane thinking of leaving Real Madrid

Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

In 19 games in charge of Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won 14 drawn two and lost three

I'm at Manchester and I'm happy'.

Paul Pogba almost joined Real Madrid from Juventus in the summer of 2016 before Manchester United swooped in on the Frenchman.

The Frenchman is now back in the hot seat at the Santiago Bernabeu, so the Madrid outfit could very well renew their ambition to make the former Southampton player one of their summer signings.

Pogba then went on to insist he is happy at Manchester United - for the time being at least.

Paul Pogba hopes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is given the Manchester United manager's job on a permanent basis.

"Like I've always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone", he told reporters. For now, I am at Manchester.

No-one has benefitted as much as Pogba who was dropped to the bench at the end of Mourinho's reign but has scored nine goals in 17 games under his Norwegian successor.

When Mourinho was sacked, United were sixth in the Premier League, 11 points off fourth, but they are now fifth, three points behind third-placed Tottenham. We don't know what the future holds. He's now attracting the interest of another club, one in white.

Chelsea are said to value him at around £98.5m but reports indicate that Los Blancos will seek to negotiate a lesser sum by taking advantage of the attacker's contract status.

Under Solskjaer, United have reached the Champions League quarter-finals and propelled themselves into the top-four race in the Premier League. Solskjaer deserves it. He knows the club, he knows everything about the club.

"He's a really, really happy coach that has given the confidence back to the players", he added.

The winger's deal with Chelsea expires next summer and Hazard has reportedly refused to discuss terms to extend his stay in West London, having previously stated his desire to play for Real Madrid.
