According to the Telegraph, Ed Woodward will not allow Paul Pogba to leave Old Trafford in the January transfer window, amid interest from his former club Juventus and Barcelona.
The same paper reports that Tottenham are more concerned about losing their manager Mauricio Pochettino to Real Madrid as opposed to taking up the hotseat at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer has confirmed that Antonio Valencia will remain as club captain, despite him not playing a major role this season, as well as telling Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez that the burden for improving their performances lies with them.

He has also promoted two young players – RoShaun Williams and DJ Buffonge – to the first team fold ahead of the match against Eddie Howe’s Cherries.
And Sport Witness, via O Jogo, report that goalkeeper Joel Pereira could be set to return to the club early from his loan spell with Vitória de Setúbal, as he has slipped out of favour there.
