ESPN Sources Reveals: Pogba to be made captain at Man Utd


Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to offer Paul Pogba a captain a captaincy role at Old Trafford in an effort to persuade him to remain at the club,
 sources told ESPN FC.

Solskjaer is looking for a new captain with Antonio Valencia ready to leave on a free transfer at the end of the month.

Ashley Young, who has signed a new one-year contract in February, is in line to take over Valencia as captain for the team, but with Solskjaer wanting to sign a
 new right-back this summer, the 33-year-old must contend with a reduced role next season, which means that the captain's duties on the field are in dispute.

Sources told ESPN FC that Pogba, who was dismissed as captain by Jose Mourinho, is one of the names on the board and Solskjaer hopes to give more responsibility to
 26-year-old players will help to end speculation about the future.

The Frenchman is open to a departure from United's team this summer after Solskjaer's team finished sixth in the Premier League table, losing a place in the next
 season's Champions League and condemning themselves to a campaign in the Europa League.

Real Madrid are leading the race if Pogba leaves, although sources told ESPN that United are convinced that the winner of the World Cup, which has a contract until
 2022, will not be sold.

Solskjaer is already looking to hire at least one midfielder this summer after Ander Herrera refused to offer a new contract to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Norwegian is committed to keeping his redevelopment to a minimum and does not want to lose one of his best players.

The first hiring of Solskjaer as head of Manchester is likely to be the extreme of Swansea, Daniel James.

The 21-year-old Wales player is close to a £ 15 million transfer to Old Trafford just four months after joining Leeds United.
