Wayne Rooney speaks on Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has urged the club’s board to make a decision over Paul Pogba’s future before the start of the Premier League season. The France international has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer but so far, Los Blancos have not made an official approach to land his signature.

Still, the speculation over the midfielder’s future has refused to cease and Rooney has suggested that Pogba’s future may be dependent on the mutual decision between the manager, board and the player himself, he said: “Should they [sell him]? It’s obviously down to the club, the board, the manager but also the player. I think if the player wants to stay, he’ll stay and prove what a good player he is. Again I think behind the scenes I’m sure they’re working on ways whether it’s to keep him or to let him go.”

Solskjaer wants more goals from Marcus Rashford this season

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expecting Marcus Rashford to kick on from the previous season and contribute more goals in the Premier League. The England international managed just 10 goals in the top-flight during the course of the 2018/19 campaign, but Solskjaer believes the forward can show an improvement this term with the additional experience gained.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “I think Marcus is developing really well. He’s growing, you see his stature now, his body. He’s capable of playing more this year. He struggled with his ankle last season, so this year I expect more from him. But the whole squad, we’re fitter, we’re stronger. You can see in that second half we are more than capable of lasting games. He’s getting fitter and is a year older. We’ve had six weeks to work on a shape we want to look like and he’s exceptional when there’s space in behind.”
