Pogba is currently with his United team-mates in Australia as part of their pre-season tour but made Old Trafford chiefs sweat over whether he would catch the flight Down Under after comments made by his agent Mino Raiola.

The Frenchman expressed his desire to leave United in June, telling reporters on an Adidas press tour “it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else”.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was planning to make Pogba vice-captain next season and build the team around the explosive central midfielder but is now weighing up what is best to do with the player.

As chatter rumbles on regarding the 25-year-old’s future, the club refuse to acknowledge it and have made Pogba prevalent in the release of their new gold away strip.

Adidas describe the kit as a “fresh savannah-toned aesthetic and intricate patterned design that takes its inspiration from the many mosaics that colour the streets of Manchester’s creative district, the Northern Q.”

It’s somewhat fitting Pogba led the release given his creative flair; he topped the side’s charts in goals, assists, passes and shots last season.

Real Madrid and Juventus are reportedly interested in purchasing the midfielder but United still do not want to sell and value him at £150million.

Two years remain on Pogba’s contract and United do not need to sell but it could fund a late spree with Sean Longstaff, Bruno Fernandes, Mario Lemina and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic among Solskjaer’s targets in midfield.

The Norwegian has nothing to report in terms of offers for Pogba yet, though.

"As far as I'm aware up until now, we don't have any bids for our players,” Solskjaer said in a Perth press conference.

“So there's no reason to say most of our players have long contracts, we're Man United, we don't have to sell players.

"What I have to say about Paul, for example, it looks like it's gonna be a media, I don't wanna call it... but it's an agenda against Paul.

"He's a top, top bloke. He's a great, great professional, he's never been any problems, he's got a heart of gold."

Raiola last week told The Times: “Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that.

“Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are. Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul's wishes."

Speaking to talkSPORT a few days later, he added: “The player [Pogba] has done nothing wrong. He has been respectful and professional in every way and always. The club has known his feeling for a long time.

“It is a shame other people only like to criticise without the right information, and I am also sorry that the club does not take any position against this. Hopefully there will be soon a satisfying solution for all parties.”
