Solskjaer Provides Update On Ander Herrera's Future

In a United shirt, he scored six Premier League goals last season but his tally is now more than double that after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed to revitalise his form at Old Trafford.

But the ongoing links, mainly emanating from the Spanish and French press, that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is also on his way to Madrid appear somewhat fanciful. "Maybe his future has been a worry for him and maybe that's part of the reason he picked up another injury", Solskjær said. Who knows? He doesn't know. He's been working really hard to get fit from his injury that he sustained against Liverpool.

'He needs to get back to that, we know what quality he has.

Solskjaer declined to offer a public assessment of United's chances of keeping Herrera.

"Because if you think about the form of the players under Jose [Mourinho], that set of players from going from the form under Jose to Ole, they haven't just become that good overnight". He loves to play, so he's not very happy when he can't help his team-mates, and he's always giving it his all.

Solskjaer's United will welcome West Ham to Old Trafford on Saturday's Premier League before travelling to Barcelona for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday.

He said: "He is training with us, he's trained twice, and he'll train today".

"I'm under no illusions that this is not going to be plain sailing", Solskjaer added.

But after going behind to Pogba's penalty, West Ham enjoyed an extended spell of pressure, going close when Snodgrass' corner was flicked across goal by Anderson and Manuel Lanzini was just unable to force his way between Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones to get a touch at the far post.

The former Oldham manager believes Pogba has struggled in recent weeks having failed to inspire his side in their last five games, where they won one and lost the other four.

"I thought first half (in Wednesday's 1-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona), yeah, we speak about Fred and Scott (McTominay), but I thought Paul made us play, settled us down a bit in the first half especially". "Sometimes in this country, we're more concerned about what the job title is rather than what people do".
