Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no issues with Paul Pogba meeting Zinedine Zidane in Dubai

The Frenchman was spotted in conversation with the Real Madrid manager (Picture: Getty) Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he ‘doesn’t have any problem’ with Paul Pogba meeting up with Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane during his trip to Dubai. The French midfielder is currently undergoing rehab in the UAE and has uploaded a series of clips to Instagram detailing his gruelling workouts as he tries to get back to full fitness. But he wasn’t the only French World Cup winner in Dubai this week, with Real head coach Zidane also holidaying at the same resort. Zidane, a known admirer of Pogba, was pictured chatting to his compatriot in Dubai (Picture: Getty) The pair were pictured together chatting by the pool, once again fuelling speculation that Pogba could move to the Bernabeu after being chased by Real over the summer. But Solskjaer has played down the meeting between Zidane and his star midfielder and insists the 26-year-old is only in Dubai to focus on his recovery from injury. ‘Paul is part of our plan, he’s been playing through the pain barriers and has been criticised left, right and centre,’ said Solskjaer on Friday when asked about Pogba’s picture with Zidane.

Real president Florentino Perez is believed to have disagreed with Zidane over the club’s need to sign Pogba, especially when he would cost over £100m, but the midfielder will only have one year left on his contract next summer which will likely alter both side’s negotiating position.
