Paul Pogba’s name is never far away from a headline regardless if he equals a Premier League record on the opening day or doesn’t. The midfielder attracts listeners like no other and was once again the subject in Mauricio Pochettino’s press conference.
On Friday, the former Tottenham manager saw his side beat Brest to make it three wins from as many games this season and was asked about a potential deal for Pogba after the encounter.
Pogba has just one year remaining on his current deal at Manchester United and is yet to commit to a long-term deal at the club, sparking rumours of a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
“The arrival of a midfielder like Pogba? We know that in football things can happen, situations turnaround,” Pochettino said after the game against Brest, according to the Manchester Evening News.
“A club like PSG is always open to improving its workforce. A sector where we must strengthen as a priority for me? I won’t say it publicly. Never.
“I will tell (sporting director) Leonardo first, who will tell our president. If I say so, there will be an earthquake and problems.”
Pogba was instrumental in Manchester United’s opening-day victory over Leeds last weekend, assisting four goals in a 5-1 rout against their fierce rivals.
Should the 28-year-old not agree on a new deal with his club by the end of the calendar year, he will be free to open talks with foreign clubs over a pre-agreement for next summer.
