Paris Saint-Germain are close to confirming the signing of Italy’s star international goalkeeper Donnarumma after the signings of Wijnaldum, Ashraf and Ramos. Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain will continue to strengthen their squad this summer. According to ESPN, Paris will make an offer to Paul Pogba, who plays for Manchester United.
Paris show interest in Paul Pogba
The Daily Mirror has revealed that the Paris bosses are very fond of Pogba.One is for his ability, and the other is because Pogba is a native French player, which is very helpful for Paris to gain more support from local fans. In addition, Paul Pogba’s agent Raiola, although he has a bad relationship with Manchester United, has a very close relationship with Paris director Leonardo.
Pogba’s contract expires next year
It is reported that Paul Pogba himself does not want to stay at United. He is out of contract next summer and has not renewed his contract with the team so far. This makes United very passive at the negotiation table.If Pogba insists on not renewing his contract, United will have to sell him this summer. Otherwise, they will be left with no money by next summer.
United’s bid for Paul Pogba is just £51 million, which is 1/3 less than the £150 million they had set for the French midfielder, and is a “loss” sale. And at £51 million, that’s a “bargain” for Paris.
A big name brought in by Manchester United for £89 million in 2016, Pogba was notable in the team last season. Pogba was also one of France’s best performers at this summer’s Euros, scoring a spectacular world goal against Switzerland. If Pogba were to join Paris, his midfield combination with Wijnaldum and Verratti would certainly provide more effective support to attackers such as Neymar and Mbappe.
Apart from Paris, Real Madrid and Juve are also interested in Pogba. But both teams, whose financial situation is not ideal, only want to sign Pogba on a free agent contract in January next year. It is safe to say that there is hardly any competition to bring Pogba to Paris this summer.
