Pogba offered vice-captain role with Manchester United to give the armband to Ashley Young

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will only offer Paul Pogba a vice-captaincy role at Manchester United next season, with the armband instead going to veteran Ashley Young. It emerged on Tuesday that Solskjaer was prepared to give Pogba the captaincy in an effort to persuade the midfielder to snub interest from Real Madrid and commit to the Red Devils. The 33-year-old is the most senior player at the club and has often worn the armband this past season, with previous skipper Antonio Valencia only making six league appearances. But United are looking to sign a new, first-choice right-back this summer-Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been mooted-meaning Young will often not be on the pitch.
