Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba appears open to the idea of joining Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.

In an interview with French outlet Le Figaro, French superstar Paul Pogba is open to the idea of joining PSG once his contract at Manchester United expires in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The French ace made a name for himself at Juventus, establishing a reputation as one of the finest midfielders in world football. He eventually returned to Manchester United for a club-record fee in 2016 but has flattered to deceive consistently.

Pogba has made 229 appearances for Manchester United, scoring 39 goals and assisting 51 more across all competitions. While he has put up a few match-winning performances, it appears to be more of an exception than the norm. Now 29, it is fair to say that Pogba has wasted quite a few years of his prime at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman’s contract with Manchester United expires this summer, yet there is little hope of him penning an extension. Pogba appears all but ready to call it quits at the Theatre of Dreams and seems to have sounded out Paris Saint-Germain as a potential destination.

A move to the Parc des Princes will see the 29-year-old link up with several players with whom he shares the Les Bleus setup. Pogba appears to be quite interested in the idea of also sharing the club locker room with his French international comrades.

“Why not? It’s always nice to play with your team-mates in the national team and club.”

He went on to add his dissatisfaction during the last five years at Manchester United. While the club won the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League in 2017, they have since, gone on a five-year trophy drought. Pogba is keen to challenge for trophies and does not appear to be opposed to changing colours should it offer him a better shot at glory.

“This year it is dead, we won’t win anything. Whether it is with Manchester United or at another club, I want to win trophies.”

Pogba admits that he plays at a higher level for France thanks to the clarity that goes into his position and what is expected of him. Life at Old Trafford has admittedly been chaotic, and the Frenchman could benefit from a change of scenery.

While landing a player of Pogba’s calibre for free will be a dream come true for PSG, it does not necessarily guarantee success. Last summer, the French giants brought in some of the biggest names in world football, but they have failed to impress, especially in Europe. More so, the managerial hot seat could also be up for grabs should Mauricio Pochettino part ways with the club.

Moving to PSG could be an appealing option to Pogba, but unless the French club picks up the pieces and get their act together, it might be another case of the 29-year-old jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
