Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United to hold on to Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, saying the pair will play a “vital” role in the club’s future.
Pogba has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid and admitted last week that he has long dreamed of playing for the Spanish giants under Zinedine Zidane.
Rashford, meanwhile, is said to have attracted interest from Barcelona, though Sky Sports have reported the England international is ready to commit to a new deal at United after Solskjaer was appointed coach on a permanent basis this week.
“They are vital for our future,” Solskjaer told reporters. “You have got loads of players who you can build a team around and those are two that you asked me about.”
When asked if the two stars can reach their career goals at United, he replied: “I would believe so. That’s our aim as a club, to be achieving what we have done in the past. That is the expectations here.
“Of course, we are hoping to build a team strong enough [to be] worthy of the history of the club.”
