Manchester United is reportedly considering selling its superstar midfielder Paul Pogba this summer. The Frenchman has just one year left on his current contract and could leave on a free transfer next season if he doesn't sign a new contract.
Reports suggest that Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has entertained talks with French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) over a move for the French midfielder.
Manchester United signed Paul Pogba back from Juventus for £89 million in 2016, after letting him go initially for just £800k. Pogba currently earns £290,000 per week and is currently in the last year of his Manchester United contract.
That 28-year-old was one of France’s showmen in the Euros this summer. Despite their elimination in the knockout stages by Switzerland, Paul Pogba’s performance attracted eyes from the top clubs around the world, including PSG and Real Madrid.
PSG believes they can afford Pogba’s wages and bring the player back to his country for £43 million. However, reports claim there has been no concrete interaction with Manchester United for the French midfielder’s transfer.
Paul Pogba joining PSG will be a significant boost to the French side, especially in their pursuit of Champions League glory. The French side, having gone close to lifting the trophy two years ago, will see their odds of winning it improve at bookmakers.
The French club already made significant transfers this summer, with the purchase of Georgino Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos, and Achraf Hakimi.
Manchester United are set to complete the signing of Jadon Sancho this summer and are looking to add Raphael Varane to the squad. The club will decide to either risk having him till next season or make money from his purchase before the transfer deadline on the 31st of August.
