The main talk around Old Trafford this summer has been about France midfielder Pogba.
The 26-year-old has been linked with big-money moves to Juventus or Real Madrid after admitting he was ready for a “new challenge”.
But after topping United’s goals and assists charts last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in no mood to sell him.
Pogba is likely to cost around £150m, and the Red Devils boss revealed earlier this week that he had received no bids for the player.
“We’ve not had any bids from any clubs”

“Agents talk all of the time and, as I said, we’ve not had any bids, from any clubs, that’s all I can say about this matter,” Solskjaer said.
“I’m not just talking about Mino Raiola, there are loads of agents out there, they have got clients that they are looking after, so they can look after their clients.”
“As long as they‘re [players who want to leave] here, they’re professionals, working, giving everything they’ve got, agents and everyone else can talk.
“And we’ve got our own talks behind the scenes and I’m not going to tell you what we’re talking about, as you would probably imagine.”
With Real and Juve yet to ramp up their interest in Pogba, that is reportedly leaving a move for Fernandes in serious doubt.
The MEN claim United have identified Fernandes as a replacement for Pogba.
But with the World Cup winner looking more and more likely to remain at Old Trafford, transfer chief Ed Woodward is unlikely to make a bid for Fernandes.
That is contrary to several recent reports which claim United are edging closer to sealing a deal for the Portuguese playmaker.
Elsewhere, United are understood to have downplayed their interest in Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina.
The Gabon international opted not to join the Saints in their pre-season tour of Austria, instead focusing on trying to force a move to a bigger club.
United were linked with him earlier this week, along with Arsenal.
But the MEN claim that Old Trafford bigwigs feel they were only brought into the discussion to increase his price, with a fee likely to stand at around £30m.
