Paul Pogba’s future is set to dominate headlines this summer and according to new reports, Paris Saint-Germain are in talks with his representatives, with the first contact believed to have come as early as in March this year.
France’s exit from this summer’s European Championships will do little to derail rumours but with one year remaining on his contract at his club, Manchester United will be desperate to avoid a repeat of his calamitous exit in 2012.
According to Foot Mercato, the French club are in discussions with Paul Pogba’s representatives over a move, with the first talks believed to have come several months ago. The report claims that both Pogba and Mino Raiola, his agent, are open to making the move from Manchester to Paris this summer.
According to the publication, the interest has come due to Pogba’s resistance in contract talks with United and despite signing Giorginio Winaldum from Liverpool, Mauricio Pochettino is still looking for midfield reinforcements.
Pogba was a key player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season and is unlikely to welcome a sale but his wishes could be vetoed by the club, who would likely rather cash in than lose the 28-year-old for nothing next year.
