What Solskjaer will offer Pogba to snub Real Madrid move

Intro

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.
