Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has no problem with Paul Pogba speaking to Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane despite speculation over the Manchester United star moving to the Bernabeu.

With Pogba in Dubai recovering from an ankle injury, and Zidane recently attending a conference in the Middle East, the pair were pictured in conversation on a beach during the latest global break.

Zidane was keen to bring Pogba to the Bernabeu in the summer - and is reportedly still set on getting the France global - but Solskjaer says the midfielder plays a key role in his United vision.

Asked about the image, Solskjaer said: "Here we go with the picture!"

Pogba has been heavily linked with Real after saying it would be "a dream" to play for the Spanish giants, and also has a good relationship with French compatriot Zidane. "When you're at Man United, you do get pictures, speculation; I don't have any problem with that at all".

"Paul is part of our plan going forward and Paul knows that".

"He's been criticised left, right and centre, but when he came back, Rochdale, Arsenal, he could have easily opted not to play in them".

"He wanted to play, he wanted to try to get back and it was too painful. Now he is recovering, he is mending", Solskjaer submitted. "It's personal and I am not going to say anymore", the Real Madrid coach said in a press conference, with a bid to trying to stop the wave of rumours now circulating. He's been off for a few days working. "Paul wants to stay here and play well".
