Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Sunday, November 22.

Sunday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'Paul Pogba is currently unhappy at Manchester United'

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Paul Pogba is currently 'unhappy' at Old Trafford due to his struggle for performances.

The midfielder is no longer an automatic pick for the 20-time English champions, having found it difficult to show his best form in the early stages of the 2020-21 campaign.

Pogba put in two strong displays for France during the recent international break, which led to praise from Les Bleus boss Didier Deschamps.

There have been suggestions that the World Cup winner could look to run down his contract with United before leaving on a free transfer in the summer of 2022, and Solskjaer has conceded that the 27-year-old is not currently content at club level.

"I spoke to Paul today about it. Of course he's not been happy when he's not playing, and not playing really well," The Mirror quotes Solskjaer as saying. "He's not been happy with his performances. He plays in the same position for France and he does for us, so that's not a different scenario.

"It's about getting momentum and rhythm and he felt really strong towards the end against Portugal and towards the end of the game with Sweden, which is natural because he had coronavirus and he needed time.

"That's the same with all of our players - they look stronger and fitter and he's the same. Paul has the qualities to do many things. It's about the balance of the team, that's on the 11 you pick that day, that's the key.

"Sometimes it's as a number eight, sometimes a number 10, sometimes in off the left in a diamond, sometimes one of the two, he can do everything. And now, the fitter he gets, the more he can do."

Pogba is still believed to be a transfer target for Juventus and Real Madrid.



Cristiano Ronaldo 'approaches Real Madrid over possible return'

Juventus attacker Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly approached Real Madrid over a possible return to the Bernabeu amid the recent speculation surrounding his future.

The 35-year-old has a contract in Turin until the summer of 2022, but it has been suggested that Juve could look to move him on at the end of the 2020-21 campaign to reduce their wage budget.

According to Marca, Ronaldo is open to the idea of returning to Madrid and has been in contact with Los Blancos to discuss a possible move when he leaves Juve.

The report claims that the Portugal international has had a poor relationship with the Spanish champions since his exit in 2018 but is keen to rebuild bridges.

Ronaldo, who has also been linked with a return to Manchester United, has scored 71 times in 94 appearances for the Old Lady, including six goals in five outings this term despite spending time on the sidelines after testing positive for coronavirus.

The forward managed 450 goals in 438 appearances for Los Blancos, meanwhile, winning two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during a hugely successful period in the Spanish capital.
