Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told agent Mino Raiola: ‘I’ll decide what happens to Paul Pogba — not you’.
Raiola has again warned Manchester United that their £89million record buy will quit if they miss out on Champions League football — posting a message directed at Solskjaer via Twitter.
But Pogba still has 16 months on his contract, and the club have the option to extend it a year.
United are prepared to sell him for £150m but it will be on THEIR terms.

And boss Solskjaer said: “Paul is our player and not Mino’s.
“I haven’t sat down and told Paul to tell his agent what to say. I’ve not spoken to Mino, that’s for sure.”
Just this weekend Raiola was speaking again about midfielder Pogba — claiming that United’s lowly league position does not fit with his player’s ambitions.

Raiola said: “Paul wants to stay at the highest level. We’ll see at the end of the season if he remains or not.”
He also pointed to a return to Juventus as being the likely option in his eyes.
Raiola added: “I talk to Juve and their vice-chairman Pavel Nedved about Pogba.
“Along with them there are other clubs in for Paul but he considers Italy to be his second home.”
Right now the French World Cup winner, 26, is continuing his rehabilitation from an ankle injury and operation.
He has played just eight times for United this season.
