Solskjaer Advised on New Man Utd Captain After Valencia Leaves

Former Tottenham Hotspur star, Jamie Redknapp, has urged Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make midfielder, Paul Pogba, the new Red Devils captain after Antonio Valencia leaves Old Trafford this summer.
Redknapp stated this ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Wolves on Tuesday.
DAILY POST recalls that Valencia is among the list of players that will leave Man United this summer
Redknapp believes the only way Solskjaer can keep Pogba at the club next season amid interest from Real Madrid is to make the France international the new Man United captain after Valencia leaves Old Trafford at the end of the season.
“The most important bit of business Solskjaer can do this summer is to keep hold of Paul Pogba,” Redknapp told Daily Mail.
“A couple of months ago, when Pogba was inspiring United’s astonishing revival under Solskjaer, the midfielder’s future did not seem in doubt.
“The return of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid has changed that. Pogba himself has said that he would be open to a move to the Bernabeu once his time in Manchester has ended.
“He may well feel that this summer is the right time to leave. Failure to qualify for the Champions League may not prevent United from attracting the best players but it could convince Pogba to go.”
Redknapp added: “Replacing a player who has contributed 11 goals and nine assists from midfield in the league this season is no mean feat.
“I have argued before that they should make him captain and, with club captain Antonio Valencia set to leave, this is the perfect time to give Pogba the armband.”
