Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has "no doubts" that Paul Pogba will stay at the club despite Real Madrid's interest.
Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has said the midfielder wants to leave the club but he remains a United player one week ahead of the start of the Premier League season.
The Frenchman missed Saturday's friendly against Milan, but Solskjaer says that had nothing to do with a potential move away from the club.
“I have no doubts at all that Paul still wants to play for Manchester United," the coach said after the game.
“He isn’t injured, he’s just in some pain and I wasn’t going to risk anything this weekend with only eight days to go before the first game.
“I knew he wouldn’t be travelling to Cardiff because I spoke to him about it after training on Friday and he wasn’t right.
“He’ll probably be back in training early next week and I hope he should be OK for Chelsea.”
Meanwhile, Madrid looked to have moved on to Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek given their failure to get United to sell Pogba, who was coach Zinedine Zidane's first choice.
