Man Utd news LIVE: Solskjaer sack update, Woodward wants four signings, Pogba demand | Football | Sport


Man Utd promise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer four signings

Manchester United have told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer they are aiming to bring in four new signings next year.

United have struggled to score goals this season and according The Times, the club’s board is willing to remain patient with Solskjaer as they acknowledge the scale of the task at hand in rebuilding his squad.

The Norwegian has held meetings with the club’s hierarchy and they will be looking to make four signings next year, including a centre forward.

United made three signings this summer, with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James heading to Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba demands same pay as Cristiano Ronaldo

Paul Pogba reportedly wants €30million (£27m) a year to stay at Manchester United with his current deal ending in 2021.

Pogba has been continuously linked with a move away from United with Real Madrid and Juventus believed to be keen.

The French star stayed at Old Trafford during the summer despite plenty of speculation with his current contract ending in just under two years.

United do have an option to extend the deal by a further year, though reports claim it will cost them big to keep him any longer.

Italian outlet Tuttosport claim Pogba wants £27m a year – the same figure that Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo earns.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sack update

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be sacked even if United are hammered by Liverpool next week.

The Norwegian has been under immense pressure after a poor start to the season.

United host Liverpool next weekend as Jurgen Klopp’s men look to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

However, The Times say Solskjaer will not be sacked if United are hammered by Liverpool.
