Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Paul Pogba and any other wantaway players that Manchester United do not have to sell anyone and believes there is an agenda against the Frenchman.
For the first time in 62 days, the United manager faced the media at the WACA in Perth, where the press conference was dominated by the happiness of their record signing.
Pogba's public declaration that he would be keen to leave for a "new challenge" has been compounded in recent days by the midfielder's agent, with Mino Raiola saying he was "in the process" of arranging a move for the World Cup winner.
Asked about the France international, Solskjaer said: "There has been loads of talk and speculation, of course, about all our players or many of our players, both ins and outs."
"For me, it's business as usual. When you're Man United, you expect all these things to pop up in the summer," Solskjaer added.
"And of course I've been in touch with Paul, spoken to Paul. Spoken to Rom [Romelu Lukaku], spoken to Rashy [Marcus Rashford], Jesse (Lingard) - I've spoken to all the players, more or less, over the summer.
"As you do, you keep in touch with them.
"As far as I am aware and up to now, we don't have any bids for any of our players. We are Man United - we don't have to sell players."
"It's an agenda against Paul,. Paul is a top bloke, a great professional. He has never put himself out of the team. He has always wanted to play and he always gives his best.
"I can't be sitting here talking about Paul and what agents are saying, we've got a few years left of his contract and he's been fantastic."
The Norwegian used a recent social media post from the Manchester United official Twitter account as an example of the perceived agenda.
A video of the United team walking around Perth, Australia, seemed to show a mini bust-up between Pogba and Jesse Lingard, but Solskjaer says there was nothing in it.
"Jesse and Paul yesterday walking around was portrayed as a fight between the two boys and I know you're here to sell players and stories but they're all professional."
