REVEALED: Man Utd boss Solskjaer has three names to replace Pogba

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has three players on a shortlist to replace Paul Pogba.

Wantaway Pogba is a target for Juventus and Real Madrid.

The Mirror says should Pogba depart, then Solskjaer is keen to sign a direct replacement as early as possible and has already nailed down a three-player shortlist.

Youri Tielemans, Christian Eriksen or James Maddison are top of his wish list, but any move depends on whether Pogba stays put or secures a switch.

Tielemans impressed on loan at Leicester last season while fellow Foxes favourite Maddison enjoyed a stunning debut season in the Premier League.

Eriksen, the Tottenham playmaker, has long been linked with a switch to Old Trafford and made clear his desire to have a fresh challenge at the end of last season.
