Transfer: What Solskjaer will offer Pogba to snub Real Madrid move
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is ready to offer Paul Pogba a captaincy role, in an effort to convince the midfielder to stay at the club, ESPN reports.
Solskjaer is looking for a new captain, with Antonio Valencia set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the month.
Ashley Young, who signed a new one-year deal in February, is in line to take over from Valencia as club captain, but with Solskjaer looking to sign a new right-back this summer, the 33-year-old is likely to have to settle for a reduced role next season.
Pogba, who was stripped of captaincy duties by Jose Mourinho, is one of the names in the frame.
Solskjaer is hopeful that handing the 26-year-old more responsibility, will help end speculation over his future.
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, after United finished sixth in the Premier League and failed to qualify for the Champions League.
