During the worldwide break, Paul Pogba revealed that a move to Real Madrid would be a dream come true but his coach at Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, believes that the Frenchman will be at the club for a couple more years.
The contract extension means that Real Madrid will be compelled to pay a few for the player next season if they pursue a transfer for the player that they have already earmarked a potential future "Galactico".
ESPN reported that Manchester United activated the clause to avoid complications.
"Paul is our player, and he's going to be here for another two years", Solskjaer told reporters Friday.
"We're all different individuals and we all deal with different things differently", he said.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has been on the trail of the midfielder and Pogba was recently quoted to have stated that it would be a "dream" to play for the reigning Spanish champions.
"When Harry is part of the England team that beats number-one ranked Belgium, that's just a normal day and then you get the headlines when you get the sending-off", said Solskjaer. Pogba said in a news conference a week ago via Reuters.
Meanwhile, the player is also having the backing of his team-mates at Old Trafford club. Considering he has struggled since returning to training after testing positive for the coronavirus, work needs to be done.
"Every player goes through hard periods but you have to be strong mentally and we all need to try and get the team back to where it belongs", Pogba said at the time.
Earlier reports have discussed Real Madrid and Juventus as admirers. In 2019, United was willing to talk to the La Liga giants about a possible transfer. "He's a lad who doesn't want to hide he doesn't want to hide behind a red card or a bad performance, he wants to go out there and prove himself".
