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.
  • Ashley Young only signed a one-year contract extension and there is an expectation that whoever is given the vice-captaincy will be made club captain next summer when the full-back leaves.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prepared to make Paul Pogba Manchester United captain in attempt to keep him at Old Trafford

  • Antonio Valencia's departure means the United boss needs to fill the captaincy void ahead of next season-with Pogba firmly in contention. Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to make Paul Pogba the club’s new captain in an attempt to convince the midfielder to remain at Old Trafford. Pogba is one of the leading candidates to land the captaincy, with the position vacant following the news that Antonio Valencia will leave this summer after the club chose not to trigger a one-year extension on his contract. Ashley Young, who signed a new one-year deal back in February, is in line to take over from Valencia as club captain, but with the 33-year-old set for a reduced role in the playing squad, the on-pitch captain position is up for grabs. 
  • Pogba, 26, is open to a move away from Old Trafford with United missing out on a place in next year’s Champions League having finished sixth in the Premier League.
