Paul Pogba has claimed that the current Manchester United team is the "strongest" team he's been a part of and is happy to be at Old Trafford.

Pogba was linked with an exit from United throughout the summer, with reports claiming that Real Madrid and Juventus were interested in poaching the Frenchman away from the Red Devils.

However, the 28-year-old insisted he is optimistic about the Red Devils' chances of a successful campaign under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Speaking before the team's 1-0 win at Wolves on Sunday, he told TV2: "There have always been strong Manchester United teams, but this is definitely the strongest [I've played in]. It is obviously in this club's DNA to win trophies. We have a strong team that can become champions. We know how hard it is, but we will do our best to lift the trophy this season."

Pogba refused to give anything away when quizzed on his long-term future, but did admit he is enjoying his football in Manchester amid reports that the club are working to tie him down to fresh terms.

"To be honest, I am very happy, I enjoy myself. The Premier League is back, I play football again after a nice holiday, so it is very, very good," he added.

"There is a huge difference from last season. Last season I had corona[virus] and no seasonal run-up, so it took a long time to get back in shape. This season I have trained, I have had a good start and I have been healthy. I feel much better and it makes a huge difference physically."

Pogba went on to praise Solskjaer for the work he's done at the club, and added: "I have known Ole for a long time and we have always had a good relationship, and he is good with all the other players as well. He was here as a player, so he knows the club very well. It has been very good since he came in."
