Solskjaer: Pogba will be at Manchester United for another two years

Chelsea FC v Manchester United- Premier League

Manchester United have triggered the one-year option on Paul Pogba's contract in a move that will keep the France midfielder at Old Trafford until 2022.

It means Pogba can not leave as a free agent next summer or talk to foreign clubs in January, having once again described the prospect of playing for Real Madrid as "a dream" last week.

"Paul's our player", Solskjaer told the press prior Manchester United's game against Newcastle on Sunday. "I'm sure in the next couple of years we'll get the best out of him".

'Also if Juventus, Real Madrid or PSG will try again on next years, United will always control the situation and they will eventually sell him before losing Paul as a free agent.

But, according to reports on Friday, United have moved to secure Pogba's services until at least the end of next season by taking advantage of the extension clause in the World Cup winner's contract.

The 23-year-old has made five appearances for the Red Devils since arriving over the summer but is yet to start a Premier League match for his new club.

"It is a dream for me, why not one day?".

The Daily Mail has revealed that Manchester United and four others from the Premier League are in the race to sign the £40m-rated David Brooks.

The contract extension means that Real Madrid will be compelled to pay a few for the player next season if they pursue a transfer for the player that they have already earmarked a potential future "Galactico".
