Manchester United may have identified next season's right-back

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that he will not sell Paul Pogba this summer and backed the £89 million midfielder to dominate Manchester United's Champions League game against Barcelona at Old Trafford this evening.

Gerard Pique warned former side Manchester United that Barcelona will put the tie to bed if they get the chance in Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal first leg.

It will be Smalling's job to look after Lionel Messi when Barcelona, who have never won at Old Trafford in four attempts, visit on Wednesday night and the centre-back was in defiant mood at the prematch news conference.

Benched for both legs of a bitterly disappointing last 16 exit to Sevilla last season by Jose Mourinho due to personal differences and poor performances, Pogba's only previous start ended in a red card and a 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain back in February.

"I don't think many people expect United to go through this tie so that could help them a bit". Pogba scored nine goals and created six more in his first 12 games under Solskjaer.

If he's to reach another this season then United will need to get past Barcelona who they square off against in the quarter-finals.

"We've learnt from that PSG game", Solskjaer said.

"He's a fantastic player and will go down in history as one of the best individual players ever".

In contrast, United have won just the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League since Ferguson's departure in 2013, but Pique hopes success returns to his old side.

"They consider the Premier League the same as the Champions League here - if not more important - and since the Ferguson era they've been the biggest team and will keep on being the biggest team". Again, there is no easy option there, so it is definitely going to be the hardest competition for them to win. They have strong, quick players on the break: [Romelu] Lukaku and [Marcus] Rashford.

According to the report, United have been watching Belgium worldwide Meunier, who enjoyed an excellent World Cup for his country last summer as they reached the semi-finals. There are midfielders who know how to defend really well, others who are very good in attack.
