French midfield star Pogba has been linked with former club Juventus and LaLiga giants Real Madrid.


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident midfield ace Paul Pogba will sign a new contract at Old Trafford.


Pogba's future continues to be a hot topic of discussion, with several clubs including PSG, Real Madrid, and Juventus monitoring the World Cup winner's situation at United.


The Les Bleus star's current contract at Old Trafford is set to expire in 2021 and the Red Devils have the option to extend a year further.


Pogba has been in fine form since returning from an ankle problem last month and is building an exciting partnership with January signing Bruno Fernandes in midfield.



However, Solskjaer hopes United can negotiate fresh terms with the 27-year-old after Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay extended their contracts with the 20-time champions.


"I can't comment on discussions between the player and the club but of course, we want to keep the best players around the club," Solskjaer said ahead of Thursday's trip to relegation-threatened Aston Villa.


"We want to build a squad for the future and Scott and Nemanja are a similar position but at different stages in their careers. One at the start, one really experienced one.


"We also need players in the mid-range group. Hopefully, we can do something.


"I know that since Paul's come back he's looking better and better. He's enjoying his football and let's see where it takes us."
