Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly considering a late move this summer for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
According to a report by ESPN, Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up the possibility of snapping up Paul Pogba before the summer transfer window slams shut. The French giants will make a move for the Manchester United midfielder if they end up selling Kylian Mbappe.
Paul Pogba is currently in his second coming at Manchester United, having returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer of 2016. Now half-a-decade into his return to the Premier League club, the Frenchman has endured a roller-coaster of a ride with the Red Devils, although he has proven to be a key player for them as well.
Pogba’s fine run of form has extended pretty much since the turn of the year, and he has made a superb start to the 2021/22 campaign, having provided a whopping five assists in just two games so far. However, while he continues to be pivotal to Manchester United’s fortunes, the 28-year-old has had a lot of question marks surrounding his future at the club. This has alerted PSG.
PSG hold a long-term standing interest in Pogba, having been considering a move for him for the better part of the last two years. The continued interest in the Manchester United midfielder is quite interesting, seeing as Les Parisiens have already bolstered their midfield in the form of Georginio Wijnaldum.
Pogba, though, would be an upgrade on most of the midfielders at PSG, while also being another statement signing by the Ligue 1 heavyweights in a memorable summer transfer window that has seen them sign the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma.
In recent times, there have even been suggestions that PSG could offer Pogba a €600,000-a-week deal. And it now looks like the French giants might be ready to make their move for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, with Manchester United likely to be approached if Kylian Mbappe is sold.
Mbappe has been heavily linked with Real Madrid, who have had a big-money offer being knocked back by PSG. If the Frenchman ends up leaving, PSG will have more than enough funds to make their move for Pogba, although it remains to be seen if Manchester United allow him to leave this late in the transfer window.
