Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be better suited trying to get more out of Paul Pogba than discussing players from other clubs.

Super agent Mino Raiola has told Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer it would be better if he focused more on Paul Pogba and not Erling Braut Haaland.

Solskjaer has made no secret of his admiration for Haaland, whom he tried to sign from Red Bull Salzburg before his compatriot joined Borussia Dortmund in January.

The Norwegian boss most recently discussed Haaland last week when asked about the prolific striker at a news conference, saying that he is "proud" of his career trajectory.

However, Raiola believes that Solskjaer should instead only discuss the players at his own club, such as wantaway midfielder Pogba.

"Haaland is like Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he was 20," he told Tuttosport.

"Solskjaer is a good guy but he was wrong when he said that Erling is like Romelu Lukaku... it would be better if Solskjaer thought about finding a way to make Pogba play like a champion, instead of talking about Haaland."

Raiola's comments were made in an explosive interview with the Italian outlet in which he also revealed his client Pogba's time at Old Trafford "is over".

Former club Juventus are the favourites to sign the Frenchman next year, while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have been credited with an interest in the past.
