In October, United triggered a one-year contract extension to tie the 27-year-old to the club until the summer of 2022, but are now reportedly hoping to recoup some of the money that they paid to Juventus some four-and-a-half years ago.

The news comes nearly a month after Sportsmail revealed that Pogba is set for heart-to-heart talks with Solskjaer this month with a return to the Serie A champions on the cards.

The report in the Mirror also adds that Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the France international, while other reports have suggested swap deals with one of Juventus duo Paulo Dybala or Cristiano Ronaldo could be on the cards.

Gary Neville also insisted following Raiola’s comments that United ‘have got to find an exit’ for Pogba, however Solskjaer said at the start of the Christmas period that winning trophies will help convince players like Pogba that their future remains at Old Trafford.

‘It’s always a demand here at Manchester United to win trophies,’ Solskjaer told ESPN. ‘And the more we win trophies, the more players will want to play for us – then the higher standard you’ve got to set yourself.

‘It’s a demand for the players, a challenge for the players that we want them to improve and get better and better.

‘Paul has been here now for a while and, of course, he wants to win more trophies. He’s got a very, very good attitude to training and playing football.

The Norwegian also praised the midfielder for his performance in the 2-1 win against Aston Villa on Friday, which saw United go joint-top of the table.

‘He’s getting better and better, fitter and fitter, and I think he played well tonight,’ Solskjaer said.

‘They [Villa] are a physical side. There was loads of challenges, one against ones, and Paul is one of these boys that can hold players off and get hold of it for us.’
