Pogba and Kroos could swap clubs in what would be a sensational January switch
The World Cup winner’s Red Devils team-mates are convinced there is no way back for the Frenchman, who fears the club remain two or three years behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
United’s £89million record signing believes he cannot afford to hang around as he chases more titles.
Pogba, 26, has made just two sub appearances since late September due to an ankle injury.
And now Solskjaer has confirmed Pog is out for up to four weeks more with a fresh knock.
Real Madrid remains Pogba’s most likely transfer destination, although it appears unlikely a deal will be done this window.
But United have been in for the 29-year-old Kroos before and could reignite their interest once more.
He came close to joining from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2014 – when he won the World Cup with Germany – but ended up at the Bernabeu.
If no such deal is agreed, Real will want Kroos, 29, to move somewhere else to make space for Pogba.
United slapped a £180m price-tag on Pogba in the summer to scare off potential buyers.
But things have changed since then and he could now leave for £100m.
Solskjaer has publicly supported Pogba, hailing him as one of the world’s best midfielders.
Yet behind the scenes, the United chief has grown frustrated with him.
He was even prepared to let him go last summer if the club’s valuation was met and could reinvest the money.
