Manchester United have once again struggled domestically this season, with the Mancunian giants currently sitting in sixth place with two games of the league campaign remaining.

A top four spot for Solskjaer's men is still a distant possibility but the Norwegian will need a plethora of results to go for his side as well as winning against both Huddersfield and Cardiff.

The Red Devils are in the midst of a terrible run of form, losing seven out of their last nine games since Ole was taken on full-time.

It was all looking rather rosy when the baby faced assassin was taken on in an interim capacity, with United almost immediately eradicating any bad feeling that was left by predecessor Jose Mourinho with an initial run of eight wins on the bounce.

One player whose form seemed to transform with Solskjaer's appointment was World Cup winner Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman's tension with Mourinho had become public knowledge, leaving many fans to feel forced to make a choice between the player or the manager.

A 3-1 defeat to Mourinho proved to be the definitive blow in his two and a half year tenure the club, and there was nothing more noticeable than Pogba's sudden change in attitude and form.


The 26-year-old has scored 11 goals under Solskjaer - 13 in the league overall - which has led him to be United's top goalscorer this season, albeit at an alarmingly low tally for a club of United's reputation.

Pogba's resurgence meant that the rumours of a possible transfer to Real Madrid reemerged, and various reports have exposed the midfielder's undeniable interest in joining Los Blancos one day.


Well, according to the Daily Mail, it seems Man United may be forced to give in to Madrid's temptation, but will only be willing to listen if the Spanish giants can offer £160 million or more for Pogba.

The United man still has two years remaining on his current contract as well as an option for the club to trigger a year extension.
