Paul Pogba is unhappy at Manchester United, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.

United's £89million club-record signing has started just one of their last four Premier League games and is no longer an automatic pick.

During the recent international break, France boss Didier Deschamps claimed Pogba was unhappy with his lack of game-time at United and being played out of position.

United boss Solskjaer revealed he spoke to Pogba about the midfielder's current predicament and admitted the 27-year-old, whose future is unclear, was not happy with his form and lack of starts.

Given Pogba's discontent, United could finally be willing to sell him next summer, with Real Madrid his likeliest destination, having recently extended his contract extension to 2022.

"I spoke to Paul today about it," said Solskjaer. "Of course he’s not been happy when he’s not playing, and not playing really well.

"He’s not been happy with his performances. He plays in the same position for France and he does for us, so that’s not a different scenario.

"It’s about getting momentum and rhythm and he felt really strong towards the end against Portugal and towards the end of the game with Sweden, which is natural because he had Covid and he needed time.

"That’s the same with all of our players – they look stronger and fitter and he’s the same."

Pogba has struggled to live up to his club-record signing status since returning to United in 2016, with the World Cup winner having failed to perform consistently and nail down a regular position.

"Paul has the qualities to do many things," said Solskjaer.

"It’s about the balance of the team, that’s on the 11 you pick that day, that’s the key.

"Sometimes it’s as a No.8, sometimes a No.10, sometimes in off the left in a diamond, sometimes one of the two, he can do everything. And now, the fitter he gets, the more he can do."
