Paul Pogba has been told to get his head down and give his all for Manchester United by Bryan Robson.

The 26-year-old’s future at Old Trafford has been a constant source of speculation this summer, with Real Madrid said to be interested in signing the midfielder.

Pogba himself contributed to the speculation about his future by hinting that he would be open to a move away from Old Trafford in an interview given at the start of the summer transfer window.

As things stand, Pogba remains a Manchester United player and he is currently in Australia with the rest of the Manchester United squad for their pre-season tour.

And club legend Robson has now urged Pogba to work hard in silence as the Red Devils continue their preparations for the new Premier League campaign.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Daily Mail, Robson said: “You’re a Manchester United player, you’re contracted to them so you have to give everything for the club, the team and the fans.

“There’s a lot of speculation in the media about Paul. He is a top player.

“Get your head down, do your pre-season as well as you can – which, from what I’ve seen in the training sessions, he has done – and if something happens and the club want it to happen, or nothing happens then you’ve got to get on with it.”

Pogba was one of Manchester United’s most consistent performers last season, scoring 13 goals and making nine assists in 35 Premier League games.

Manchester United’s first target for next season will be to break back into the top four after they finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s permanent appointment as Jose Mourinho’s successor back in March.
