- But he made a quick exit when he was asked to join the French club
Paul Pogba wasn’t eager to hang out when his French team-mates Kingsley Coman and Presnel Kimpembe asked him if he wanted to go to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Manchester United midfielder will not have a contract with the Red Devils at the end of next season and his agent Mino Raiola has regularly discussed the possibility of him leaving the club.
Real Madrid and Juventus are the two main clubs to have received interest, but PSG could pay his wages and a hefty transfer fee if interested.

Pogba has ruled out a move to the French club in the past because both his parents are fans of rival club Marseille.
However, Coman and Kimpembe decided to have some fun by whipping things up at a press conference in France.
After the United midfielder crept up on his teammates, Kimpembe said: “We’re talking about Paris,” to which Coman added: “Yeah, you’re a Parisian, aren’t you?”
A stunned Pogba replied, “Yeah, so?”
Coman then referred to PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi by saying: ‘Nasser, any contact?’

Kimpembe then added: ‘The transfer window is coming soon’, with Coman again asking ‘Is there contact?’
Pogba replied quickly, “No!” before making a hasty exit as his teammates burst out laughing.
The 28-year-old is strongly focused on helping France win the European Championship this summer, but his future at Old Trafford remains uncertain.
Super agent Raiola was adamant that he would leave the club earlier in the season.

“I can say it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United,” Raiola told Italian newspaper Tuttosport in December.
“He has to change teams, he has to change the sky. He has a contract that expires in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but I think the best solution for the parties is to sell in the next market.
“Otherwise the club, with whom relations are excellent, know full well that they risk losing him on a free transfer as it is not the player’s intention to extend the contract for the time being.”
But Pogba played a key role in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad that finished second and reached the Europa League final, and he was still able to sign a new contract with the club.
