PSG ‘open talks with Paul Pogba’s entourage to gauge whether they can sign the French midfielder’ as Manchester United brace for £43m bid from French giants
- Paris Saint-Germain reportedly held talks with representatives of Paul Pogba
- The 28-year-old has 12 months left on his current contract at Old Trafford
- Manchester United prepare £43m bid from French giants for Pogba
Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly held talks with Paul Pogba’s representatives about a possible move this summer.
The 28-year-old still has a 12-month contract at Old Trafford and talks about an extension have stalled.
The Athletic claim that Pogba’s entourage has held talks with the French side to discuss whether a move would be feasible this summer.
Paul Pogba has just one year left on his current contract and is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain
PSG have already made five signings this summer in the form of Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum and Danilo Pereira.
And Manchester United are preparing a £43 million bid for Pogba.
The Red Devils risk losing Pogba, who cost them a world record £89million in 2016, for nothing next summer when his contract expires.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Pogba to follow suit and entrust his future to the club
Pogba starred at Euro 2020 for France and is currently on family vacation in Florida before returning to United for season preparation.
Asked about the situation last month, he said: “I still have a contract for one year, everyone knows that. There are no concrete proposals for extensions. I’m still in Manchester.’
The Mirror also reported earlier this week that Pogba has turned down a £50m long-term contract offer from United.
United signed Donny van de Beek last summer to cover a £40m deal from Ajax in case Pogba were to leave, and potential replacements for the Frenchman this summer include West Ham star Declan Rice, Atlético Madrid’s Saul Niguez or Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
