The Red Devils have held talks with a new ‘happy’ Paul Pogba over his future at Old Trafford.
The Frenchman has 16 months left on his deal and United would need to sell this summer to get a decent price for their £89million record signing.
Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola have talked publicly in the past about his desire to leave for a new challenge.
But manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now getting the best out of the player, giving the club some optimism that they have turned a corner and the 27-year-old midfielder could commit his future to them.
Solskjaer said: “Speculation about Paul is always going to be there, we’ve got a good, open dialogue with Paul so what we talk about and how we see that situation remains between us.
“I’m just happy he’s focused and playing really well and he’s happy within himself and that’s important — you can see Paul enjoying football himself with a red shirt on.
“Paul is a Man United player through and through.
“He’s been here in two spells, he came as a kid he’s learnt about the history of the club, the passion of the club, he wants to do the best for Man United when he’s here.
“I think we’ve seen that he really cares for his team and he’s trying to be as successful as everyone else.”
Meanwhile, Edinson Cavani is available for today’s Premier League fixture with Everton.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Eric Bailly is a doubt.
He said: “Edinson should be available, yeah, definitely.
“He got a bad ankle knock. Eric is a doubt, apart from that everyone’s raring to go.”
And finally, West Ham United boss David Moyes is open to the prospect of signing Jesse Lingard permanently this summer.
He said: “We won’t get carried away with one game but we are really pleased for Jesse and he did a great job for us.
“The situation here is that Jesse has a good chance to look at West Ham and see what he thinks of us and to see if he likes it.
“And we are going to have a good chance to look at Jesse, as are the supporters, and we will be able to decide what we think in five or six months’ time.”
